According to the club's official website, the son Bucs legend Eric Sono and the brother of Jomo Cosmos boss Jomo Sono, Julius Sono has reportedly questioned Khoza’s ownership of the Soweto club.

“It is really painful to see the son of an Orlando Pirates great, Eric Scara Sono in such a sad state of mind,” said Khoza.

“This is the second time in a space of a month that Orlando Pirates had to attend to his spurious claims. First it was a case he went to open at the Hillbrow Police Station which after an investigation by Detective Cokozani was thrown out by the prosecutors.

“Yesterday he tried to sneak in a case at the Labour Court hoping to get a default judgement resulting from a possible 'non-appearance' of respondents he sighted.

“It is time that Julius get help as it is really painful to see him in such a compromised mental state.

“It is pity that the Sowetan newspaper deemed it fit to provide such prominence to this sad episode in Julius Sono's life. Then again we live in a free society where one of our core freedoms is that of the media. Hopefully this prominence will help Julius get help.”
