Updates :Kaizer Chiefs DC’ Hearing Has Approached.
Meanwhile, Amakhosi has organized a powerful legal presentation for the case, led by Karabo Mathang-Tshabuse and former PSL prosecutor Norman Arendse.
The day of reckoning has arrived for Kaizer Chiefs, who will face the Premier Soccer League’s disciplinary committee on Friday afternoon. This is in regard to their inability to honor two DStv Premiership fixtures in December.
Amakhosi were unable to host Cape Town City and were also unable to go to Durban to play Golden Arrows last month. They had requested that their games for the month be postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak in Naturena that allegedly affected over 30 persons, including players and other personnel.
Their postponement requests were denied because the regulations indicated that Covid-19 could not be used as a reason for game postponement or cancellation. Prior to the commencement of the season, all 32 PSL clubs signed the rule.
Zola Majavu, the PSL’s new prosecutor, had set the date for the hearing for January 21, and he sent out a public reminder for the DC meeting on Thursday.
“As a reminder, the Kaizer Chiefs case will be heard tomorrow, Friday, January 21, at 4:00 p.m.” “Once that matter has been resolved, I will provide another update,” Majavu said.

Their Soweto neighbors and main rivals, the Orlando Pirates, have also been summoned to the DC for their own transgressions.
The Buccaneers have been prosecuted in connection with an incident in December involving TS Galaxy owner Tim Sukazi, who was denied admission into Orlando Stadium’s locker rooms when his team played the Pirates.
“Orlando Pirates FC was charged yesterday, and their case has been scheduled for a hearing at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, January 26,” the statement said.
“This is in regard to the wrongdoing that resulted from TS Galaxy’s chairperson being denied access to the stadium.”
“The allegations leveled against Pirates are related to the incident. I will come back and offer specifics on the conclusion of the DC hearing when the DC is finalized, at whatever day and time it may be,” Majavu added.
