Obrey Chirwa and Deus Kaseke escapes TFF ban

Goal Tanzania
Ligi Kuu Bara outfits Yanga can now have their striker Obrey Chirwa back to squad for league games.

The Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) disciplinary committee has lifted an indefinite suspension slapped on the Zambian player by Tanzania Ligi Kuu Board allegedly for indiscipline recently.

Singida United’s Deus Kaseke must also be rubbing his hands with glee as the committee said he is now free to feature for his team.

Chirwa and Kaseke suffered the Ligi Kuu Bara board’s wrath together with former Yanga forward Simon Msuva, who now features for Difaa El Jadida of Morocco.

The disciplinary committee chairman, Peter Hela, said Thursday that Singida United and Yanga were now free to field the duo in their league matches.

The three players were suspended for allegedly harassing a referee during the Ligi Kuu Bara game between Yanga and Mbao FC at the CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza.

Msuva and Kaseke were then playing for Yanga.

He said the disciplinary committee’s decision to set them free was reached during a meeting held in the city on Tuesday.

“Both Kaseke and Chirwa, who did not feature for their respective teams in the opening matches of Ligi Kuu Bara opening last weekend, can now be included in their squads,” he said.

Meanwhile, Msuva joined the national team, Taifa Stars camp on Thursday ahead of an international friendly match against The Zebras of Botswana at the Uhuru Stadium on Saturday.

The slippery forward is among five foreign-players expected to feature for the team during the showdown, which falls on Fifa schedule for international friendly matches.

The Zebras arrived in the country on Thursday, raring to down the hosts in what promises to be an exciting match.

Simon Msuva insisted that he is in great shape, looking forward to torment the visitors defence in Saturday's showdown.
