The left-back, who has been given a new lease on life at Bucs, as he received game time under Swedish coach, Kjell Jonevret and his technical team, is allegedly facing charges of alleged attempted murder, assault and possession of an unlicensed firearm.

According to local media reports, the 29-year-old allegedly appeared at the Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday for the charges against him and his brother Phelelani Aubrey Phungwayo.

It is alleged that the football star and his brother were involved in an altercation with an unidentified man at a party in Spruitview in Johannesburg during the May Day long weekend.

The unidentified man was allegedly assaulted and shot, with the bullet hitting him on the finger. Contacted for comment, Pirates’ administrative officer, Floyd Mbele, said the club knew nothing about the matter. 

Mbele advised that the Siya crew should get a comment directly from Phungwayo himself on the matter.

“I think you must try and find Patrick and let him talk about it. I don’t know anything about it. I think you must try and find him,” said Mbele.  

Attempts have been made by the Siya crew to get a comment from Phungwayo but his phone kept ringing without an answer. He has been yet to reply to the messages left for him.

According to reports, the Phungwayo brothers are out on bail of R2 000 each and the matter has been postponed to June 23 while the investigation is underway.
