Mandava Stadium Violence Shocks Mapeza

Mandava Stadium Violence Shocks Mapeza

FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza said that he was shocked by the violence which erupted at Mandava Stadium on Saturday, 23 April, during the Castle Lager Premiership match between the champions and Highlanders.

The scoreline was 1-1 when the referee, Kuzivakwamwari Jaravaza, awarded FC Platinum a controversial penalty in the final 10 minutes of the second half.

Various media reports claim the penalty shouldn’t have been given as video replays showed that the contact between Highlanders defender Peter Muduhwa and FC Platinum striker Walter Musona was not only minimal but also happened outside the penalty area.

Highlanders fans responded by invading the pitch and police fired teargas to disperse the fans resulting in the abandonment of the match.

Mapeza said he had no comment on the penalty incident or the resultant crowd trouble and the firing of teargas by the police. He said:

I have nothing to say, you all saw what happened, I have no comment on anything.

I’m still in shock from what happened, it’s very bad for such a great spectacle to be abandoned in such a manner.

It was very bad, people could have died on Saturday and it’s sad for our football, this has to stop.

The fate of the game is still to be decided by the Premiership leadership, with Highlanders facing possible sanctions.

the refree and his assistant decided to tarnish a good match ,with the two confidently play the ball whoever had the position, from reports coming from different Media houses it wasn't a penalty, in my own view that foul occurred outside the BOX , the officials there I think made a big mistake ,
Mari ikurwadza kuwana guys when 1 pays to watch a game these days then the man in the Middle decides otherwise it's not good for Zim 🇿🇼 football.

Even someone passing a helicopter above the stadium can tell that it wasn't a penult. Walter Musona threw himself down purposely and the **** referee who I think should have been paid a bribe, pointed to the spot. Now I understand why our referees are never considered for any major competitions. It's either they are incompetent or are just known to be corrupt. **** referee get away, don't ever come to BF,
