Mekelakeya, the sole club sanctioned this week.

Mekelakeya, one of the contenders for the Ethiopia Premier League title, faced sanctions this week following the disclosure of disciplinary rulings from week 21. The League’s disciplinary committee convened and declared that Mekelakeya, along with several other players, would be penalized for a range of infractions.

The club was sanctioned because five of their Players received yellow cards in a match against Ethiopian Insurance. During the Mekelakeya lost 1-2 to Insurance in the ill-tempered match and thus missed the chance to go level on points with leaders, Ethiopia Nigd Bank on 43 points.

Mekelakeya remain second on the log with 40 points in what has been a three-horse race with St George in third place on 38 points.

The players from other Clubs who were punished include Henock Hassen (Dire Dawa City), Habtamu Nigussie (Shashemene City), Yabsera Tesfaye and Habtamu Tadesse (Bahir Dar City)

The quartet of players will sit out the upcoming week’s matches due to accumulating five yellow cards each. Additionally, they will be required to pay fines of 1500 Birrs.
