MP Black Aces striker Mabhuti Khenyeza can enjoy his football again after winning the appeal for his 12-month ban, confirmed the club
Khenyeza was banned from all football activities for a year having been initially found guilty for allegedly swearing and spitting at the assistant referee Zakhele Siwela during Ajax Cape Town’s clash against Mamelodi Sundowns on April 2.
The former Kaizer Chiefs forward had maintained his innocence throughout, but he was still hoping for justice to eventually prevail, and the Aces management is pleased with the outcome.
“We are very pleased with the ruling and [we] now hope the player will assist Aces in our 2013/2014 season. He can now focus on football matters on the pitch and put this saga behind him,” Aces co-chairman George Morfou was quoted on the club website.
The 31-year-old Khenyeza was dumped by Ajax Cape Town immediately after his suspension, but Aces offered him a contract and fielded him in their opening league fixture against Kaizer Chiefs earlier this month.
