Dar es Salaam. The Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) has filed an appeal at the Court of Appeal of Tanzania to oppose the ruling made by the High Court of Tanzania to nullify the decision taken by the body’s Ethics Appeal Committee to ban Michael Wambura for life from dealing with football issues.

The TFF Disciplinary Committee banned Wambura for life from all football-related activities for misconduct before he filed an appeal to the Ethics Appeal Committee which upheld the decision taken before.

The TFF disciplinary committee slapped the ban on the former national soccer governing body’s secretary general (then FAT) after he was found guilty of three corruption charges.

Wambura was charged with illegal payment of Sh84 million, forgeries of documents and conspiracy to illegally receive money from former TFF president Jamal Malinzi and secretary general Andrew Mwesigwa.
