Cape Town - Former Black Leopards defender Bongani Masangane has been arrested after being found in possession of dagga in Eswatini.

Masangane (42) played for Leopards between 2003 and 2005 before relocating back to Eswatini to play for Mbabane Highlanders.

According to a report carried by Swazi Observer, Masangane was arrested after going to the police with five kilograms of dagga in his possession and demanding to be given a trading licence for the banned substance.

Chief Police Information and Communications Officer Superintendent Phindile Vilakati confirmed the arrest of the former Lidoda Duvha player.

"Yes, it is true that 'Ndezi' Masangane was arrested by the Manzini police on Monday for possession of dagga," he told KickOff. "However, I am not sure if he has already appeared before court," Vilakati said.
