Stone victim Mweene recovered

2012-11-18 18:30

Johannesburg - Zambia goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene says he was not seriously injured and has fully recovered after he was struck by a stone on Wednesday night.

Mweene needed stitches to his head after two boys, aged 12 and 13, shattered a window of the Zambian team's bus, following their 1-0 win over Bafana Bafana in the Nelson Mandela Challenge at FNB Stadium.

"They were two small boys, I think around 12, and it's one of those things. Fortunately I wasn't too injured," Mweene said on Sunday.

Mweene was speaking in a television interview after his Free State Stars outfit lost 3-2 against Bloemfontein Celtic in their Telkom Knockout semi-final in Phuthaditjhaba.

    Kind of you to say so sir but it is NOT just one of those things...this thug like behaviour is all too common in South Africa and growing day by day and all our politicians also reckons its only one of those things...in the meantime the economy is being damaged and the fibre of society is being eroded. As a South Africa I am sorry this happened to you and I wish we could be a better people.

      Guys i agree its sad thing which should never happen in football but this should not mean dat all South African fans are like dat infact South African players have been intimidated in most of thier African travels e.g. Dalren Buckley had was hit by a bottle after scoring a goal in Zimbabwe a few years ago, Bafana played under militery intimidation in DRC also a few years ago so please do not act like South African fans are all like dat

      Why are you two defending it??? That's the exact problem. Rather than condemn the action, you condemn the guy saying it's wrong. Come on. To say we suffer abuse in other countries doesn't at all justify it. I'm amazed by this mentality

    Shame on you Bafana supporters!

    That's good news. It is good to see how humble you are staying. Some South Africans have a lot to learn from other Africans. I hope you have a lot more victories over Bafana Bafana to celebrate, Kennedy.
