Big bans for Lucky, Bruwer

Maritzburg United's Lucky Maselesele and Denzyl Bruwer of Ajax Cape Town have been banned for two years after testing positive for banned substances.

Bruwer tested positive for a prohibited substance known as Methamphetamine; the misconduct was detected during a Premier Soccer League match between Ajax and Free State Stars. The Namibian goalkeeper was further fined R65 000 by a Safa DC in Johannesburg.

The DC made a ruling on the evidence that Bruwer’s A and B urine samples tested positive.

In another case, the Safa DC found Maselesele guilty of misconduct. On November 12, 2008 in a League match between Maritzburg United and Bidvest Wits, Maselesele tested positive to a prohibited substance known and described as benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine.

The Safa DC found Maselesele guilty of transgressing the Fifa Doping Control Regulations, suspending him for two years and also ordering him to pay the costs of the first hearing; the amount of which will be determined by Safa.

Commenting on the two verdicts, Safa CEO Raymond Hack says: “The fundamental aims of doping control are threefold: to uphold and preserve the ethics of sport; to safeguard the physical health and mental integrity of players; and to ensure that all competitors have an equal chance.

“The Association will continue to be vigilant in ensuring that the principle of Fair Play prevails in the Sport we all love.”
