Arrested Bafana Bafana Player Applies For Bail
News broke in local media on Sunday that 15 people were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, which included a Bafana Bafana international.
It has been reported that the player is 28 years old and is a former Orlando Pirates player.
Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) spokesman Senior Superintendent Isaac Mahamba has confirmed the arrest but said that the player’s identity can not be revealed at this point in time.
However, Mahamba did reveal to the Siya crew that the player has applied for bail.
"It is correct. A Bafana player was part of the people arrested. We are looking to confirm his particulars," Mahamba told the Siya crew.
"He has applied for bail. Once his particulars have been confirmed, he could be granted bail. We can expect this to appear in court this week."
Meanwhile, Bafana international Andile Jali took to Twitter to deny he was arrested for drunk driving.
When a follower on Twitter asked if it was Jali that was arrested, the midfielder replied," It’s not me please guys."
