Chiefs: Motaung on his own

2012-08-17 07:46

Johannesburg - Following their football manager’s appearance in court, Kaizer Chiefs have distanced themselves from Bobby Motaung’s arrest and insisted that it is "not a club matter".

Motaung was released on R50 000 bail on Thursday alongside Herbert Theledi after the pair appeared in court faced with charges of fraud, forgery and theft.

The duo’s case was postponed and they were told that they, plus fellow accused, Chris Grib, would have to return to court on October 15th.

On Thursday Chiefs denied knowledge of their employees arrest, but issued a statement on the matter.

The statement on the Kaizer Chiefs website said, “The club can now confirm that Bobby Motaung and his co-director, Herbert Theledi, of Lefika Emerging Equity (Pty) Ltd, appeared in court in Nelspruit on Thursday in relation to allegations made against Lefika Emerging Equity (Pty) Ltd regarding certain business dealings by the company.

“The two were granted bail on Thursday. We would like to categorically state that no arrests took place at the Chiefs Village in Naturena on Wednesday as was stated in the media.

“This is not a club matter and should not be treated as such.”

The charges laid against the accused relate to fraudulent activity surrounding Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.

    Chiefs has Football to concentrate on!

    As far as I'm concerned, Kaizer Chiefs, for the sake of it's image, doesn't need elements like B. Motaung. This man's characteristics and acts, dent the image of this mighty club. I admit that, 1's innocent, 'til proven guilty, this man, not long ago, made some comments which frustrated the fans of this club. The management, the fans and the footbal community at large, better think again about this man, for God's sake.

    Is good that he should be on his own on this matter. He is a man and if he is guilty of any wrong doing the law must take its cause. Kaizer Chiefs belongs to Motaung Senior and not Bobby. He is just a spoilt brat who grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth and now he is effing up everything. Jessica must replace him, finish & klaar.

    chips is a family business so one of the family members is arrested surely the whole family should be affected

    chiefs: Motaung on his own....they r lyng, who can neglect hs/her own blood

  • tokollo.moeletsi - 2012-08-17 09:36

    .... Wasn’t it the same Bobby that stated that Chiefs is a family business? Now the club wants to distant its self from Bobby.

  • papikie2 - 2012-08-17 10:34

    The title of this article is misleading (anyway that's how newspapers increase sales). By saying "Motaung on his own" one would think the club has deserted Bobby whereas its clear that the club distanced itself from the arrest not the individual!

    Boby uyakuzibhobhela ngokwakho ke ntanga

    What this means is that if he's capable of being involved in such activities what other things as such is he involved in, e.g. match fixing, etc. Just saying!!!!!
