The representative of Brilliant Khuzwayo confirmed to the Siya crew that the former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper had been stabbed.
A statement on Khuzwayo’s Twitter account this morning, revealed that the 30-year-old was rushed to hospital after being stabbed by what is believed to be a student at the Mangosuthu University of Technology.
The former goalkeeper was invited to speak at a sports event.
“17-10-2020 Brilliant Khuzwayo was invited to speak at the Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) sports event. Right before he could make his address, a male believed to be a MUT student stabbed him and he was rushed to the hospital. A case has been opened with Umlazi SAPS,” was a statement issued on Khuzwayo’s official Twitter account.
Soccer Laduma has since gotten in touch with the player’s representative who confirmed the news to the Siya crew, adding that he is doing ‘fine’.
"I spoke to Brilliant who confirmed the incident but he is fine,” his representative, Basia Michaels said.
"Police at Umlazi are investigating two counts of assault GBH as well as crimen injuria.
