NPL suspends Young African

07 November 2018 | Sports


The Namibia Premier League has resolved to suspend Gobabis-based Young African FC for allegedly fielding an improperly registered player last season. The NPL top brass, who met on Tuesday evening, however, resolved not to suspend the player in question, Zimbabwean national Tapiwa Musekiwa, because he was not registered with any team at the moment. Young African have been suspended pending the finalisation of the disciplinary hearing against them. NPL prosecutor Kadhila Amoomo this week made the recommendation to suspend Young African and Musekiwa from all football-related activities. The alleged fraud was exposed last week when Young Chiefs, who were relegated to the first division at the end of last season, submitted a complaint to the NPL in which they claimed that Young African registered Tapiwa Simon Musekiwa as Albert Mujikerera, by using an altered Zimbabwean passport.
