Murape, Byo City fined

HARARE - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has fined Dynamos assistant coach Murape Murape $1 500 for threatening to assault match officials during the Harare derby against CAPS United at the National Sports Stadium.

At the same time, the league’s disciplinary committee also fined Bulawayo City $2 500 for age-cheating after registering three over aged players as part of their development contingent.

The three players Dean Sibanda, Lewis Ncube and Bothwell Nyathi were also banned from all football activities within the PSL for a year and ordered to pay a third of the hearing each.

“...Murape was fined $1 500 of which $500 has been suspended until the end of the 2017 season on the condition the accused does not within that period commit a similar offence. The effective fine of         $1 000 together with the costs of the hearing be paid by the 31st of December 2016,” the PSL said yesterday.

Murape widely celebrated every time DeMbare scored by invading the pitch and was subsequently sent to the stands due to his unsporting behaviour.

After the match which ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw, the Glamour Boys assistant coach also had a go at fourth official Nomore Musundire before he was restrained by security marshals.   

On the Bulawayo City trio, the league said the club knowingly provided falsified information purporting that the players were below the age of 20.

Ncube, Sibanda, and Nyathi went on to append their signatures on PSL registration forms with their wrong date of births which contravenes Order 31 which make it an offence to provide misleading information to the league.

“The players were banned from all football activities for 12 months, three of which have been suspended on condition the players do not within that period commit a similar offence,” the league said.
