Ajax Give Update On Ndoro Saga

Ajax Cape Town Have Issued An Update On The Tendai Ndoro Saga

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 27, 2018 12:10 PM

Ajax Cape Town have updated the football fraternity on the latest happenings relating to their legal battles with the National Soccer League.

The Urban Warriors were present in court yesterday, following their desire to apply for an interdict against the start of the 2018/19 Premier Soccer League campaign.

However, the club subsequently withdrew their application, after Judge Denise Fischer granted the NSL leave to appeal her previous judgement.

Fischer recently ruled that Advocate William Mokhari’s award of docking points from Ajax for the ineligible fielding of Tendai Ndoro, be set aside.

The PSL was set to respond and have done so by requesting leave to appeal the judgement, with their appeal set to be heard in the coming days.

Upon this decision, Ajax withdrew both applications, one to interdict the start of the league and another for Section 18, which allows the order to remain, whilst it is being appealed. 

However, the Urban Warriors along with their legal representative, Advocate Norman Arendse has since updated the football fraternity on the latest happenings. 

At a press conference held at Ikamva, Ajax Cape Town CEO, Ari Efstathiou gave his opinion on the matter. 

"I didn’t want to make a comment after yesterday because I thought it would be important to come to you with our thoughts. 

"That is why advocate Norman Arendse is here. On the club’s side, unfortunately, once again, we have seen a lot of situations like this. Time and legal procedure have basically trumped justice and we feel very strongly about that. 
"We still believe we followed the rules. We played him when we were supposed to play him. Unfortunately, the process got complicated.  
"It got complicated, we ended up with seven court appearances. It is is a process that went on for five months. We have been at the top and bottom of the roller coaster. Yesterday was unfortunate where the time issue of the league and the way the court process went. Put us in a difficult spot. 
"And now we are forced to take our place in the NFD unless something happens during the appeal process. But the process can take anything from 4-12 weeks and if we are successful which we think we would be. Then what then? And to be frank, it could have happened to any other club as it happened to us, Pirates, Chiefs and I trust that it would have followed the same procedure. 
"But we did fight for the truth and what we believe what was right," he added.
