On August 4 2016, Ncube, his then assistant Farai Mujokoro and kit manager Gift Mvala were suspended by Bulawayo City Football Club. Mvala and Mujokoro were then banned from the game by the Premier Soccer League disciplinary committee. The trio was alleged to have attempted to bribe Border Strikers goalkeeper Talent Sande ahead of a match between Border Strikers and Bulawayo City.

Ncube and Bulawayo City chairperson Jerry Sibanda were provisionally suspended by the Zimbabwe Football Association Executive Committee and the two were barred from participating in association football activities in Zimbabwe.[3]
