Orlando Pirates have confirmed that one of the club's strikers has been cleared of rape charges.
The Buccaneers confirmed on the club's official website that Ayanda Nkosi has been informed today (Tuesday) that he has been cleared of rape charges against him.
"Ayanda Nkosi was relieved when he was informed earlier today that the state has dropped the rape charge against him. Mr Nkosi was informed via a letter from the National Prosecutions Services that after careful consideration of the docket, it could not be proven beyond reasonable doubt that Mr Nkosi had committed this heinous act," Pirates confirmed on the club's official website.
“I would like to refer to the Club’s pledge which has stayed with me since my induction at the Club, that violence against women and children is like waging a war on ourselves as a nation and we must speak out against it and be exemplary through our deeds and serve as role models. I am happy that my name has been cleared," Nkosi commented on Bucs' official website.
