PSL slam Sundowns, Cosmos

Mamelodi Sundowns and Jomo Cosmos will be hauled before the PSL’s DRC for their vocal support of new Safa president Kirsten Nematandani.
What has irked the PSL bosses is that Downs owner Patrice Motsepe and his counterpart at Cosmos Jomo Sono reneged on a recent decision at the Board of Governors’ meeting that only Kaizer Motaung, in his capacity as deputy-chairman, could comment on the issue of seeking legal opinion over the validity of the Safa elections. “When the proposal that only Motaung should comment on the issue was raised, neither Sundowns nor Cosmos opposed the resolution. Surely that was the time when their representatives should have raised their opposition,” PSL CEO Kjetil Siem is quoted by Sapa. “Indeed, Cosmos did not as much as oppose the earlier resolution to seek legal opinion on the Safa elections either. In the circumstances, we have had no alternative but to refer the matter to the PSL prosecutor, Zola Majavu, who will decide whether Sundowns and Cosmos should be charged with bringing the League into disrepute. “We are a democratic organisation, but when you tacitly accept a resolution supported by the vast majority while not raising any objections at the appropriate time, and then disregard the ruling to which they are a party, it is embarrassing for the organisation.”
