Toiletries Mistaken For Muti At A Game
Muti Drama During A Game Explained
Drama took place at the Harry Gwala Stadium during the recent NFD game for Royal Eagles and Black Leopards.
The two sides played to a goalless draw in their most recent game on May 03. As reported in the latest edition of Soccer Laduma, a bizarre “muti” incident which allegedly involved top KZN-based scout Tebogo Moloi, Black Leopards’ boss David Thidiela, as well as a bag of toiletries played itself out on the day of the game.
According to sources, a local KZN youngster was beaten up, allegedly by Eagles’ security.
“Eagles’ security asked me, ‘What did Thidiela give you?’ Moloi told the Siya crew. I replied, ‘He gave me the car keys.’ Then I heard the club’s GM, Richard Makhoba, say, ‘Don’t allow these people in again.’
“That’s when the beating happened because they suspected the boy had muti in his bag but it was just toiletries, a bunch of keys and a cell phone. I don’t touch muti. I’m not even allowed to touch it and always preach to my players, ‘Don’t use muti!’ My mother doesn’t even go to a sangoma.”
A few days later, Moloi ended up collecting his car keys from a police station after a visit to Eagles’ village with the local constabulary.
“No charges have been laid so far. It’s up to the boy whether he’ll do so or not,” Moloi concluded.
While Makhoba didn’t want to comment, merely saying, “Tebogo has put himself in trouble”, Thidiela wants a case opened.
“That would be the best thing as Moloi was so good to me,” Thidiela told Soccer Laduma.
