FIFA Ethics Committee Provisionally Suspends Coach in Congo DR Amidst Sexual Abuse Allegations
The FIFA Ethics Committee has provisionally suspended coach Jonathan Bukabakwa of Congo DR, following horrifying sexual abuse allegations that have rocked African football federations. Bukabakwa has been accused of sexually abusing female players, who were under his charge while he was working as the women's national team coach.
This suspension comes in the wake of an investigation by the Football Association of the Democratic Republic of Congo (FECOFA), which found that Bukabakwa had committed "serious sexual misconduct" with some of the players. According to the FECOFA report, Bukabakwa had "repeatedly" abused the players, with some of the incidents dating back to 2014.
The FIFA Ethics Committee has taken note of the FECOFA report and has decided to suspend Bukabakwa, pending further investigation. The committee has stated that this suspension is "necessary to prevent interference with the establishment of the truth". The suspension is in line with FIFA's zero-tolerance policy towards any form of sexual abuse or harassment in football.Also Read:

FIFA has been working hard to address the issue of sexual abuse and harassment in football, and the suspension of Bukabakwa is a clear indication of their commitment to eradicating this problem. In 2019, FIFA launched a new global safeguarding programme, which aims to protect children and young people from all forms of abuse in football.
The programme includes the development of safeguarding policies and procedures, training for coaches, referees, and other officials, and the establishment of reporting mechanisms for victims of abuse. FIFA has also set up a dedicated Safeguarding Department to oversee the implementation of the programme and to ensure that all allegations of abuse are investigated promptly and thoroughly.
The suspension of Bukabakwa is a clear message to all football coaches and officials that any form of sexual abuse or harassment will not be tolerated by FIFA. It is also a reminder to national football associations that they have a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of all their players, especially children and young people.
So, the provisional suspension of Jonathan Bukabakwa by the FIFA Ethics Committee is a welcome move towards addressing the issue of sexual abuse in football. It sends a strong message that FIFA is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all players, and that any form of abuse or harassment will not be tolerated. It is now up to the FIFA Ethics Committee to conduct a thorough investigation into the allegations against Bukabakwa and to take appropriate action based on their findings.
