CAPS United responds to Violence Allegations

Following the ugly scenes that resulted in the Chibuku Super Cup match abandonment between Shabanie Mine and Caps United in Zvishavane on Sunday, the former has hinted to fight the disorderly and disruptive behaviour exhibited by the visiting fans at Maglas.


In a press statement released on their official website, Makepekepe condemned hooliganism and violence at match venues and the Maglas scenery was the point of reference.



The Shabanie Mine – CAPS Utd match was abandoned 25 minutes before regulation time when United equalised through Kudzai Nyamupfukudza and the Linesman, Mr Thomas Kusosa, adjudged the goal to be an offside while the centre referee pointed to the centre circle signalling a goal.

The latter however changed his decision for a free kick to the home side and the discord provoked the fans who expressed their displeasure by throwing missiles into the pitch.

The match officials had to sort refuge while the CAPS United technical bench calmed the supportes and they responded positively, with the match ready to resume, the match officials called off the match.

According to reports, it is rather the inadequacy of security that led to the abandonment of the match not the behaviour of the fans hence the Green Machine can still appeal for a replay or a continuation of the match from the 65th minute.

The Premier Soccer League is said to be in charge of security personnel at match venues.

It remains to be seen what will be the outcome.
