AmaZulu chairman, Patrick Sokhela, and the club have been charged by the Premier Soccer League, with attempting to attack and with insulting match official, Kulasande Qongqo, during a fixture against Maritzburg United at recently.
The Durban-based side's boss is expected to appear before the PSL Disciplinary Committee to explain his actions, and is likely to receive a fine if he pleads guilty. The match in question was played on March 14 at the Harry Gwala Stadium, with Usuthu emerging 3-1 winners courtesy of a Bongani Ndulula brace and a Goodman Dlamini strike.
At this stage it is not quite clear what AmaZulu were protesting about that could have led to Sokhela allegedly “attempting to attack” and “insulting” Qongqo, but all will be revealed on the date of the hearing.
Meanwhile, Bloemfontein Celtic have been charged with contravening Rule 10.5 for not giving their opponents, SuperSport United, access to their change room ahead of their Absa Premiership fixture on March 15 at the Kaizer Sebothelo Stadium, while National First Division side, Maluti FET College, have also been charged with contravening the PSL Compliance Manual, after the club representative failed to arrive on time for the pre-match meeting ahead of their fixture against Chippa United on March 14 at the Philippi Stadium.
In addition, FC Cape Town's John Comitis has been charged with bringing the League into disrepute, following comments that were attributed to him in the media recently.
