Kaizer Chiefs have been hauled before the PSL disciplinary committee for their failure to honour two DStv Premiership matches in December.
At the start of last month, Amakhosi informed the PSL that 31 people – players, technical staff and support staff – from their camp tested positive for Covid-19 and requested the league to postpone their matches, but the PSL turned them down.
Chiefs then failed to fulfil fixtures against Cape Town City and Golden Arrows.
On Wednesday, acting PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu released a statement confirming that Chiefs had been charged and are scheduled to appear before the disciplinary committee on January 21.
It will be interesting to see how the league prosecutes this matter as Chiefs have already signalled their intention to fight it.
City Press has learnt that the club sought the services of top legal minds in the country in preparation. If Chiefs were to win the case, the six points at stake would propel them near the summit of the log.
Majavu also confirmed that Golden Arrows were charged for fielding an ineligible player and have been summoned to appear before the disciplinary committee on January 20.
Last week, City Press reported that Majavu had thrown the book at Cape Town City for failing to produce players’ cards in their game against Maritzburg United last month.
The prosecutor confirmed that the club pleaded guilty when it appeared before the disciplinary committee on Wednesday and was duly convicted.
Majavu, however, said the final sanction was reserved by the committee and would be out before next Tuesday.
