Soweto Derby

Cape Town - In a video clip making the rounds on social media, an Orlando Pirates staff member is seen using what many claims to be muti.


This happened minutes before the start of the Absa Premiership Soweto derby clash against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday, February 29 at the FNB Stadium which was sold out affair.

The Buccaneers member used a liquid substance (muti) on the goalposts and goal line.

However, soon a staff, a member from Amakhosi went to 'cancel out' the muti before the match kicked off in front on the 90 000-strong crowd.

At the end of the epic encounter, the Glamour Boys reigned supreme after Lebogang Manyama's stunning first-half strike was enough to claim maximum points.

The victory allowed Chiefs to extend their lead at the top of the Premiership standings to nine-points over the Buccaneers who are currently in third place.
