According to Belgian publication, the investigations on the issue are now complete. The Belgian ProLeague confirmed that “four or five players” were mentioned in the investigations of the committee, with the Warriors striker who plays his club football in Belgium for KV Oostende being one one the players. Waasland-Beveren goalkeeper Laurent Henkinet has also been named as one of the suspects.

The report also says a prosecutor questioned the two players , and completed its investigation with the conclusion being that the two
indeed  gambled on games of their own team.

Musona reportedly admitted and notified his club of his actions and cooperated.

It is now up to the Gambling Commission to decide whether the two will be fined. Some reports though suggest that criminal charges could also be preferred against those found guilty.

Musona has had an explosive start to the Belgian league season scoring four times and is among the top goal scorers. He scored a penalty at
the weekend though in a 2-1 losing cause to Sporting Charleroi.
