Referee Suspended Because of Chiefs

It is drama after drama and things seem to be getting not any better for DStv Premiership Soccer League officials as once again they find themselves under a red deeming light.

This comes after a league match between AmaZulu football club and Kaizer Chiefs took place in KwaZulu-Natal and the referee of the day was Jelly Chavani. He is a very much familiar man to cause scenes at his matches in Charge as he did what was not expected by giving Kaizer Chiefs a false penalty.

It was not just a penalty of any kind but an equalizing penalty for Amakhosi, which gave them a point after Usuthu was leading.

However his actions caught the eye of the National League and SAFA and they had to take strictly actions, which lead Chavani and his helper Mr Moeketsi Molelekoa, who was Chavani's 4th official.

The SAFA statement sends a very firm warning to other referees in the psl league, as they suspend both match officials for a period of six weeks from officiating either GladAfrica Championship or DStv matches.
