PSL Prosecutor Charges Kaizer Chiefs for Not Fulfilling Two December Fixtures! Amakhosi, alongside two other DSTV Premiership sides, face charges this January.
Amakhosi were hit by a huge covid-19 outbreak in their Naturena village. They reported that 36 playing and non-playing staff members had tested positive for the coronavirus.
Thus, they did not have enough fit squad members to take on Golden Arrows and Cape Town City.
“Kaizer Chiefs have been charged in relation to their non-fulfilment of the two fixtures as a result of the allegations that most of their players had tested positive,”
“The case has been enrolled for hearing on January 21 at 6pm.” Majavu told the media yesterday, as per TimesLIVE.
The same teams, Golden Arrows and Cape Town City were also charged by Majavu, for other offences though, in a weird coincidence.
The Cityzens have been charged for playing against Maritzburg United despite their player cards being stolen. They lost the match 3-2 and are likely to be charged with a forfeited 3-0 loss.
“Cape Town City was duly charged and appeared before the DC earlier today,” the prosecutor said.
“The respondent club, City, pleaded guilty as charged and were duly convicted. Submissions with regard to the appropriate sanction were also made by all relevant parties, and in that regard, the final sanction is reserved by the DC.
“The indication is that such a sanction would be received by no later than Wednesday.”
Abafana Bes’thende on the other hand, have been charged with fielding an ineligible player, Simo Mbhele.
“That case has been enrolled for hearing on January 20 at 6pm,” he said.
“As soon as these matters have been finalised, I will once again communicate the outcomes thereof. Alternatively, if there any developments in these matters I will similarly communicate those.” He concluded.
All these cases are subject to their respective hearings next week. PSL Prosecutor Charges Kaizer Chiefs for Not Fulfilling Two December Fixtures!
