Khenyeza Given 12-Month Ban

Mabhudi Khenyeza’s chances of signing a contract with Ajax Cape Town have taken a huge dent after he was handed a 12-month ban by the PSL’s Disciplinary Committee.

The event occurred back in April when the forward was sent off the field of play for spitting at a match official during Ajax’s defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns.

Due to the nature of the incident the PSL’s DC seem to have chosen to make an example of Khenyeza in an attempt to stop the same kind of event happening in the future.

The PSL’s official Twitter account confirmed the ban, saying, “The PSL DC has handed Mabhudi Khenyeza a 12-months suspension for spitting at a match official.”

The 30-year-old will now face a difficult year as he attempts to keep himself fit without a club, as it is thought that the contract offer from the Urban Warriors was subject to him winning his case.

 

In a statement, PSL Prosecutor, Nandé Becker, said: “We welcome the sentence which is commensurate with the seriousness of the offences with which the player was charged with. I hope that the finding and sentence will send a strong message to all football players. Football players should be role models to their supporters, especially when matches are televised internationally. We believe that there is a fine line that must not be crossed by players in their conduct towards match officials. If players and officials want to be respected by match officials, they must at all times show the same type of respect towards such officials, irrespective of any decisions which may have been made against them by the official.” 

The statement also confirmed that:

 

  • Khenyeza is suspended from all football activities under the auspices of the League for a period of 12 (twelve) months (in terms of Rule 50.14.5 of the Rules of the League).
  • Khenyeza is ordered to pay costs of the two sittings of 17th and 23rd May 2013, such costs to include the travel costs of the League’s witnesses only for 23rd May 2013.
