Kaizer Chiefs plead guilty, slapped with a fine?

When the PSL's disciplinary committee summoned Kaizer Chiefs to be dragged over the coals for failing to play two of their DStv Premiership games in December, they didn't put up much of a fight.

Chiefs threatened to fight all the way to the Supreme Court, but eventually gave up and pleaded guilty to misbehavior for their gaffer. The case threatened to postpone the end of the current season, but it was eventually resolved.

Amakhosi was fined R100,000 for their misbehavior. They claimed that their inability to play the games was due to their responsibilities for assuring their protection against the spread of Covid-19. They stated that they have over 30 Covid positive cases in their database.

On Tuesday afternoon, PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu revealed that Kaizer Chiefs appeared before the PSL DC earlier this morning to answer to allegations of misbehavior in respect to their non-fulfillment of two fixtures in December amid Covid.

"Those were in regard to Golden Arrows and Cape Town City." The case was placed on hold pending the outcome of an arbitration hearing that Kaizer Chiefs had requested. I dropped the charges after the arbitrator ruled in their favor.
