Ad hoc committee for Bosso-DeMbare saga


The Premier Soccer League has finally appointed a three-member team to look into the disturbances that rocked the Highlanders-Dynamos BancABC semi-final-match last Saturday and come up with a verdict.
The ad hoc team comprises of Harare lawyer Don Moyo, Gunners director Cuthbert Chitima and former referee Brighton Mudzamiri.
PSL acting chief executive officer Kennedy Ndebele said the three had been appointed and he was yet to get in touch with other members of the league management committee to confirm the appointments.
“I have the names of the three members that will sit in the ad hoc committee and they are Don Moyo, a Harare lawyer, Cuthbert Chitima and former referee Brighton Mudzamiri. The three men are going to come with a decision which is final and binding and will not be contested. It is an ad hoc committee and not a disciplinary committee,” Ndebele said.
Moyo is also chairman of the PSL disciplinary committee, Chitima is the also PSL board member (development) while Mudzamiri is a referees’ instructor and Fifa security officer.
Ndebele said the PSL has submitted all documents pertaining to the case to the committee and all that was left was for the three men to set a date for meeting and deliberate and come up with a decision. The committee is dealing materially on the aspects of the game and not the violence that erupted last Saturday and if such is to be dealt with, the PSL will seek a report from the police.
On Monday, Ndebele apologised to the sponsors of the competition BancABC for the behaviour of the two clubs’ officials and players during the abandoned match. Ndebele said the league would deal decisively with the players and officials who will be found guilty of Saturday’s misdemeanour. The match was called off 23 minutes before full time after referee Bryton Malandule adjudged that there was bad lighting following a 28-minute stoppage due to a penalty awarded to Dynamos.
Earlier, the match had been stopped for another 25 minutes when Dynamos protested a penalty that had been awarded to Highlanders.
Should Highlanders and Dynamos be found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute on Saturday, both teams might see themselves not participating in the same tournament next year even if they qualify.
