Johannesburg - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has lodged arbitration on the Mpumalanga Black Aces striker Mabhuti Khenyeza case.
According to the supersport.com website, Khenyeza was initially banned for 12 months for allegedly spitting at a match official (linesman Zakhele Siwela) while for Ajax Cape Town. The incident took place in a match against Mamelodi Sundowns in April last year.
On appeal, the Aces player won his case and his sentence was reduced to a fine of R50 000, of which R25 000 was suspended for a year.
It seems however, that this matter just won’t go away as the PSL has now taken for arbitration, which will be heard between 1-9 September.
In its initial ruling, the PSL disciplinary committee suspended the player from all football activities under the auspices of the League for a period of 12 months (in terms of Rule 50.14.5 of the Rules of the League).
He was also ordered to pay costs of the two sittings of 17 and 23 May 2013, such costs to include the travel costs of the League’s witnesses only for 23 May 2013.
