The chairman of NFD side, Blackburn Rovers, has been handed a four-year ban by PSL’s Disciplinary Committee after being guilty of assaulting match official, Bafana Mosia.
Dumisani Mcedani was handed the sentence after being found guilty and is now “suspended from all footballing activities under the auspices of the NSL for a period of four years.”
Meanwhile, Mcedani was also ordered to pay all the costs of the hearing, including the cost of securing the attendances of the league’s witnesses.
In a statement from the league, the PSL’s prosecutor, Nandé Becker, said, “I hope that this will send a strong message to all football officials and players. We all have the right to disagree with decisions made by match officials but at the end of the day we must respect not only the decisions but also the officials who make the decisions, even if they may have been wrong.
"Under no circumstances will the league stand idly by and tolerate any forms of violence or disrespect towards match officials. The type of behavior exhibited by Mr. Mcedani simply has no place in football.”
