Silver Strikers have cleared forward Stain Davie from an on-going probe on charges of breaching Covid-19 precautionary measures after discovering that there was insufficient evidence against him.
Davie and five other players were reported to have taken part in a social football match contrary to the government’s directive prohibiting sporting events and public gatherings of more than 100 people.
TNM Super League clubs also bar their players from taking part in social football matches.
Silver Chief Executive Officer, Thokozani Chimbali, said Davie was not summoned for a disciplinary hearing because he was in Kasungu when the said match took place.
“We established that Davie was in Kasungu District on the day when the social match reportedly took place. However, this does not mean that the other players are guilty. We will still wait for the verdict which might be ready at the end of this week,” Chimbali said.
The Central Bankers bought Davie from TN Stars in February.
The goal poacher was not available for comment yesterday but in a recent interview with this paper, Davie said he did not take part in the match as he was in the tobacco growing district.
Foster Bitoni, Hadji Wali, Innocent Shema, Franklin Chizuze and Chinsisi Maonga appeared before the disciplinary hearing on Friday.
Reports about the players’ involvement in the social match came out in the social media, prompting the club to summon the stars to the hearing.
