Why Chiefs' disciplinary matter is dragging on


Kaizer Chiefs' disciplinary case regarding the failure to honour two DStv Premiership fixtures continues to drag on after the PSL's latest statement on the proceedings.

Chiefs failed to show for the December fixtures against Cape Town City at home and away to Golden Arrows after an outbreak of Covid-19 cases at the club.

"I can confirm that the matter concerning Kaizer Chiefs will indeed be before the DC on the 25th of February 2022, whereafter it may well be postponed further on the basis that the arbitration has yet to be finalised.

"However, the matter must still be ventilated before the PSL DC which would then further give directives as it may deem fit," explains Zola Majavu, the PSL prosecutor.

Minus the two games that are pending, Chiefs are fifth on the standings, trailing leaders Mamelodi Sundowns by 19 points though they also have another two games in hand to play.

According to the league, the matter must be finalised as soon as possible to avoid complications at the end of the season as tends to happen.

Chiefs still have 11 games to play minus the two outstanding matches, which they didn't play in December.
