PSL Summons: Dynamos Shall Not Comply With Unlawful Instructions
Dynamos Football Club has said it will not comply with unlawful instructions from Premier Soccer League (PSL) officials.
This was after PSL summoned the club’s manager, Richard Chihoro, over alleged anti-juju rituals he performed at Barbourfields Stadium during a PSL match against Hwange last Saturday.
In a statement seen by Pindula News, the Harare-based giants said:
ACT OF MISCONDUCT BY DYNAMOS FC MANAGER
Dynamos Football Club, pursuant to the charging of the club manager Mr Richard Chihoro, would like to confirm the following:
1. That the team manager was served with the summonses to appear before the PSL Disciplinary Committee on 5th April 2023;
2. That PSL secretariat did not act professionally in handling the matter as they rushed to the media before serving the accused with the summonses as per standard practice;
3. That the PSL secretariat wilfully usurped the powers of judicial bodies of football by ordering that Mr Chihoro’s accreditation be withdrawn and that he be nowhere near the team bus, technical dug out and changing rooms until the matter was finalised. Such an order must come from a competent judicial body and not the secretariat;
4. That Mr Chihoro remains an employee of Dynamos Football Club and that he will be expected to carry out his duties as per his contract with the club until such a time that a judicial determination makes such pronouncement;
5. That Dynamos Football Club shall not comply with unlawful instructions coming from Officers of the league.
Meanwhile, the club has been served with summonses to appear before the PSL Disciplinary Committee for alleged offences arising out of the Hwange vs Dynamos match. Both the club and the team manager will appear before the PSL Disciplinary Committee on 5th April 2023.
