Disheartened by delays in concluding promotional disputes in the Division 1 league which are almost derailing the Premier Soccer League’s commencement, Ndebele expressed dissatisfaction with ongoing disputes between teams in the Northern and Central Region Divisions.

Unsettled disputes in the two regions have cast uncertainty over which teams will compete in the top flight league.

In the Northern Region, DSTV recently appealed against a decision which handed Harare City premiership status.

City had been docked 18 points after allegedly improperly using striker Webster Muronda.

However, the ruling was overturned, sparking protests from DSTV Rangers who have since appealed against the decision.

In the Central Region, a battle between Triple B and Hardbody has persisted.

In an initial judgement, Hardbody were docked 42 points over the use of Taurai Chingarah who allegedly featured for Hardbody without the issuance of a reverse international transfer clearance from the Namibian Football Association.

Hardbody then successfully appealed against the judgement and were reinstated as the league’s winners.

Disgruntled by the judgement, Triple B lodged an appeal of their own, resulting in the matter being referred to the commercial arbitration centre.

All these cases have not been concluded and it is not known which teams will join the premiership, which is expected to kick off by the end of this month.
