FIFA slaps 10-year ban on ex-Tanzania football chief for misspending

FIFA has banned a former soccer official for 10 years for mismanaging “a significant amount” of money from the governing body. FIFA says former Tanzanian soccer federation president Jamal Malinzi received $528,000 over four years to repay alleged loans he made that “lack proper justification or explanation.” Malinzi also received $55,000 in prize money earned by Tanzania’s under-17 team at the African youth championship in 2017. FIFA says Malinzi was a member of its development committee — allocating project funds worldwide — and its fair play and social responsibility committee from 2013-17 when he was taking money. Malinzi was also fined 500,000 Swiss francs ($503,000). AP
