Black Leopards chairman David Thidiela has been banned from all football activities for a year and is expected to also be handed a R1 million fine following his disciplinary hearing at the PSL.

The Siya crew has learnt that – as punishment for intimidating referee Victor Hlungwani after an Absa Premiership match between Leopards and Bloemfontein Celtic in September – a sanction has finally been handed down.

On December 13, the crew broke the news that Thidiela would soon learn his fate as his future as a member of the PSL executive committee hangs in the balance. The Leopards boss was temporarily removed from the EXCO subsequent to being investigated and being charged by Nande Becker, the league’s prosecutor. His son, Tshifhiwa Thidiela had informed the crew last year Mr Thidiela, who had appointed new lawyers to defend him, had not been given a fair shake because his legal team needed time to familiarise themselves with the case.

Leopards questioned the fairness of the PSL disciplinary committee, which comprises of independent lawyers and experts in the game.

It is understood that Thidiela has been handed a one-year ban from all football-related activities and has also been hit with a R1 million fine.

The crew has also been informed that the Human Rights Commission of South Africa also wanted to get involved following the harassment of referee Hlungwani by the Leopards boss, who also faces yet another sanction after he wrote a scathing letter criticising PSL chairman Irvin Khoza.

The league is expected to issue a statement later today.
