The board meeting, which was held in Masvingo at the weekend, suspended Rushwaya to pave way into investigations of an unsanctioned trip by The Warriors to Asia early this year.
The outgoing chairman Wellington Nyatanga confirmed the suspension of Rushwaya.
Rushwaya refused to comment on the suspension saying: “ I have not received anything in writing yet”.
The suspension comes barely two weeks before the ZIFA elections pitting Nyatanga, Leslie Gwindi, Tapuwa Matangaidze, Cuthbert Dube and Charlie Jones.
Matangaidze, the outgoing Premier Soccer League chairman did not attend the meeting so did the new chairman Twine Phiri.
