Contrasting Details, Suspect Named In Maselesele’s Murder Case

Reports that former Kaizer Chiefs star Lucky Maselesele was allegedly killed for theft have been disputed by a fellow well-known ex-professional footballer.

The Siya crew revealed on Friday of Maselesele’s sad death, although at the time the details of his passing were not made public by his family and close friends.

Since then, there have been contrasting reports in local and social media about the death of the 41-year-old. Some reports have claimed that the Alexandra-born player was allegedly beaten to death by community members for the alleged theft of electrical cables, while others have indicated that he was attacked by pit bull dogs.

The police have since confirmed that two suspects were arrested, although one of them was released due to the fact that he is a minor.

The suspect who has been arrested has been charged with murder, as confirmed by the police, while the matter has been postponed for a formal bail application, as the police continue the investigation.

Former Mamelodi Sundowns defender Lovers Mohlala, who is also from Alexandra, is adamant that the electrical cables stories are untrue.

“Let me first make it clear that I am not commenting about Lucky’s death, but I want to give clarity on what is being said out there, which is untrue. I was very hurt when I heard that Lucky was killed because allegedly, he wanted to steal electrical cables or whatever. I visited his family because I wanted to have first hand information on what happened,” said Mohlala, speaking to the Siya crew.

“Lucky’s death had nothing to do with the community, and that’s how I understand it. It is an insult for people to say that Lucky was beaten up to death by the community. It was just four individuals, some of whom were even underage, and it was for something else and not this thing of cables that people are talking about. They unleashed dogs to bite him. I don’t want to comment much on this, because I feel that I have done what I needed to do, but there are other newspapers and radio stations that are misleading people and I want to appeal to them that they should stop lying to the public. One of those publications is a newspaper that used to write lies about me. Like I say, I did go to Lucky’s family, but I cannot disclose anything that I discussed with the family because I am not tasked with doing so. I am responding to you on this because I have done my investigation and it doesn’t sit well with me that people are lying about Lucky’s death,” he concluded.   

Meanwhile, the NPA has revealed the name of the suspect who appeared in court on allegations of killing Maselesele.  

“Xolani Gumbi appeared on the matter on Friday 15th, and was remanded to 22nd for bail application,” confirmed the NPA.
