The South African Football Association (SAFA) review committee have published some of the recent outcomes and punishment of officials for wrong doing.

Assistant referee Andile Mncwango received the harshest punishment by the football mother body after being banned from officiating for four months for his blunder during the league DStv Premiership match between Mamelodi Sundowns and Bloemfontein Celtic.

Mncwango together with referee Thokozani Mkhize disallowed a 61st minute goal by Sera Motebang by ruling him to be offside, a decision that was wrong and had a direct impact on the outcome of the match.

“The review committee has recommended that the second assistant referee, Andile Mncwango, not be appointed for games in the PSL or Glad Africa Championship for a period of 16 weeks,” announced SAFA on Thursday.

“The Review Committee has also recommended that the referee, Thokozani Mkhize not be appointed for games in the PSL or Glad Africa Championship for a period of 4 weeks,” they said.

Meanwhile, reigning PSL referee of the year Jelly Chavani has also been suspended from officiating for four weeks.

Chavani failed to award Orlando Pirates an obvious penalty during their 1-1 draw against Swallows earlier this month.
