Chiefs disciplinary committee benches Zuma

Johannesburg- The Kaizer Chiefs disciplinary committee hearing sitting to hear charges against star midfielder Dumisani Zuma has recommended he goes on a rehabilitation programme following his arrest for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol earlier this month.

The 26-year-old winger was arrested in Sandton, north of Joburg, after police found him to be over the legal alcohol limit.

The club said in a statement that Zuma would undergo rehabilitation following his appearance before the club’s disciplinary committee.

“A disciplinary hearing was held over the matter relating to Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Mr Dumisani Zuma.

“Following the hearing and the recommendations made,  Mr Dumisani Zuma will be disciplined in line with the company’s disciplinary code. He has been suspended from club activities and will attend rehabilitation.”

The talented midfielder has seen little or no activity since the beginning of the season as he has been plagued by injuries in his fifth season with Amakhosi.

After making 19 appearances last season, Zuma last played in May under fired coach Gavin Hunt and has had no game time under returned Englishman Stuart Baxter.
