Orlando Pirates charged by PSL

It seems like the Premier Soccer League's (PSL) Disciplinary Committee (DC) has been up in arms and actively working to enforce laws that protect the dignity of the league. In the current season alone the PSL has already charged Kaizer Chiefs and Cape Town City already, and the latest team that is reportedly charged by the league is Orlando Pirates. The charges that are faced by the Buccaneers is over a controversial incident which involves the chairman of TS Galaxy Tim Sukazi, as he was denied entry into Orlando Stadium when his team was playing away. It was strange that the security team at Orlando Stadium man handled Mr Sukazi even when he had accreditation.

Advocate Zola Majavu the procecutor of the PSL confirmed to the media that the Soweto giants have indeed been charged by the league and their case will be heard some time next week. Majavu also confirmed that when the matter has been finalized he will come and provide update on the Disciplinary Committee hearing.

The issue between the two clubs incident went as far and seeing Orlando Pirates media officer Thandi Merafe being arrested for assault charges and her case is still pending an outcome. The Buccaneers are likely going to be fined by the league after Cape Town City were also fined early this week for failing to carry their player's cards when they faced off against Maritzburg United in December. Orlando Pirates ended up winning their match 2-0 against TS Galaxy.

As soon as the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) would have come to an end the Soweto giants will be looking to continue on their fine form in the DStv Premiership, and they have collected a total of 30 points so far this season with 19 games played and they have occupied the second spot on the log standings, and they are following Mamelodi Sundowns by a total of 14 points.
