The PSL revealed the news on it's official twitter account, saying: "The #PSL Disciplinary Committee has handed a six months ban to @CapeTownCityFC
player, Mpho Makola.

"Makola was found guilty of assaulting match official, Abongile Tom during the Telkom Knockout fixture against @KaizerChiefs

It is not yet clear if Cape Town City will appeal the ruling.
