Cape Town City boss John Komitis has pleaded guilty to insulting the Premier League Football (PSL) title.
This week it was confirmed by PSL prosecutor Zola Mayavu, who said the case was over and Komitis was given a suspended sentence.
“I can confirm that John Komitis of Cape Town has appeared before the PSL Disciplinary Committee to respond to allegations of damage to the league’s reputation,” Majawa said.
“This is the result of media statements he made on various platforms concerning the results of the then Kaizer Chiefs issue before the arbitrator.

“He pleaded guilty and was later convicted as such. After hearing the materials of the league through itself as a prosecutor and his legal representatives, DC ruled the following:
“First, he was fined Rs 80,000, which is fully suspended for 12 months provided he is not found guilty of the same crime during that period.
“Secondly, he was instructed to send an official apology to the head of the league, as well as Kaiser Chiefs. Third, he was also ordered to pay the costs of two meetings.
“The costs should be determined by the league and directed to pay for it. These costs can be around 100,000 rupees just to show, ”Mayava added.
Colitis was outraged by the way PSL treats bosses in children’s gloves because of their inability to perform DStv Premiership fixtures in December.
He was particularly unhappy that the league had ordered the game to be replayed while the case was pending in court. However, “City” came out on the match and won it 2-1.
