Life bans were imposed on a referee from Tanzania and an official from Zambia for taking bribes linked to match-fixing.
FIFA says Mugadza was also fined 3,000 Swiss francs ($3,000).
Details of the case were not specified, though Mugadza was prosecuted using the FIFA code of ethics in force from 2009-12.
