 FAZ punishes violent Kashikishi Warriors

By Mercy Chewe
The FAZ Disciplinary Committee has fined Kashikishi Warriors K30, 000 and ordered the club to play their eight home matches at a neutral venue.

Kashikishi fans last week assaulted Mufulira referee Joseph Nyirenda at Mwaimwena Grounds in Nchelenge during the abandoned Week 33 match against Trident last week.

Nyirenda was beaten and left unconscious by Kashikishi fans who disputed the equalising goal scored by Trident to make it 1-1 at Mwaimwena Grounds.

“Three points be awarded to Trident FC with 3-0 score-line. That the respondent club (Kashikishi Warriors) is banned from playing at their home ground for eight (8) games,” read the judgement from FAZ.

“They (Kashikishi) should first play their next eight home matches at a neutral venue,” read the verdict in part.”

Kashikishi have been further ordered to pay K5, 000 to the injured match officials and refund their medical expenses.

The Luapula outfits have already been relegated from the FAZ National Division One League to the provincial league.
