TPLB notes success in league’s 5 games

TANZANIA Premier League Board (TPLB) has expressed satisfaction over the five rounds of the NBC Premier League saying all went well without hitches. This was said over the weekend in Dar es Salaam by the board's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Almasi Kasongo who said the level of competition among teams is high.

"From the five rounds played, you can see that the standard of competing was great that is why some teams are at the top, middle and bottom of the table but, it is still too early since anything in a league can happen," Kasongo said.

Adding, he said when the league resumes for the sixth round, teams will come up with new energy to continue fighting for three points that will put them on better positions.

"When teams are having good preparations, we expect people to witness great performance from them and this is what we would like to see in the coming rounds," he said.

Furthermore, the CEO pointed out that all sponsors of the league are timely fulfilling their responsibilities as required in the signed contracts, a situation he described as healthy towards ensuring the season is going on well.

Again, Kasongo narrated that they are content with the way referees have officiated the encounters in both the Premier and Championship leagues, saying they have performed well.

"Until the end of the fifth round, we have not received any complaints from clubs about poor refereeing something which rarely happens as such; I can say the department of referee is doing a good job," said him.

In another development, Kasongo said the board's 72-hour committee will continue to stamp suspensions and fines to those who will be found guilty breaking the rules and regulations of running the league.

His sentiments came after the committee which sat on Friday suspended and fined three top flight league coaches for allegedly uttering remarks of accusing referees of bias after their respective matches.

The trio include Boniface Mkwasa (Ruvu Shooting), Malale Hamsini (Polisi Tanzania) and Hemed Morocco of Namungo, whom Kasongo said according to the regulations, it is prohibited for coaches to openly accuse referees.

"As such; they have been given three match suspension plus being fined 1m/- each. We will continue to safeguard these regulations because they help a lot to provide a clear guidance on which way to go hence law breakers will be penalised," he remarked.

Among others, the committee also fined Young Africans 500,000/- for sending four instead of five representatives during their pre-match meeting of their previous match against Ruvu Shooting.
