Police Question Zongo

Masibusane Zongo was taken in for questioning by members of the South African Police Service (SAPS) earlier today for an alleged rape charge.

The talented midfielder has been in the news for the wrong reasons in his career and has been in Cape Town recently, in an effort to get his clearance from Chippa United, as he tries to get back onto the field and do what he does best.

However, he has now suffered a setback after allegedly getting on the wrong side of the law.

According to media reports that surfaced last month, a warrant of arrest had been issued for him after he failed on two occasions to appear in court for a rape charge, after a girl claimed that she had been allegedly raped by the soccer star at her Philippi East home while he was still at Chippa.

Chippa United’s Chief Operations Officer, Peter Koutroulis, explained that Zongo was confronted by the police while serving him with a notice.

Koutroulis said, “I was busy talking to him and the Chippa United lawyer earlier today, as I was serving him with a letter telling him he needs to appear before our Disciplinary Committee, and all of a sudden the policemen arrived and took him away.”

Zongo confirmed the COO’s statement, however said that he was not arrested and that he was questioned by the police officials.

Zongo revealed, "I wasn't arrested. I was there at Chippa's offices and the police just came and asked me some questions, and I told them there's nothing like that because vele (indeed) there's nothing like that. Even now I'm at home, watching TV. But the Chippa guys said they'll get back to me regarding my clearance."
