Likely Outcome As Pirates Official’s Case Goes To Court…

The police have provided the latest on the court matter involving Orlando Pirates media officer Thandi Merafe, as it is set to head back to court next week.

As confirmed by police this week, a case of common assault against Merafe was opened by TS Galaxy media officer Minenhle Mkhize last month. 

This, after the Pirates official allegedly slapped Mkhize in the face during a match which was not short of off-field controversy between the Buccaneers and the Rockets on December 11.

Having already confirmed that the case against Merafe is set to be heard in court next Tuesday, the Siya crew has been reliably informed that the Bucs official is likely to walk away with only a warning.

“A warning statement has been obtained from the suspect and the docket has been taken to court for a decision. The suspect is unlikely to get a sentence and could walk away with a warning, though a decision is expected to be taken on Tuesday,” confirmed a police official who spoke on condition of anonymity.
