Khoza Reacts To Sono Claims

Despite the revolt instigated by Julius Sono, the younger brother of football great and Jomo Cosmos club owner, Jomo Sono, whereby he filed papers at the Labour Court in Braamfontein to have Orlando Pirates boss, Irvin Khoza step down as the club’s Chairman, the Bucs owner has since responded to the claims on his club’s official website even displaying pity for the disgruntled Sono.

Last year, it was reported that Sono had filed papers to the Labour Court to have Khoza removed as Chairman of the Buccaneers, claiming that the club boss had caused tremendous damage to the reputation of supporters branches by allowing other branches to recruit members and operate without the Orlando Pirates Football Club Members and Branches, a registered non-profit organisation.

Today, in one of the daily newspapers it was indicated that the Buccaneers had 10 days to respond Sono’s application to have Khoza step down as Chairman of the club.

The 'Iron Duke' has since taken to his club’s website to provide the following response:

“It is really painful to see the son of an Orlando Pirates great, Eric 'Scara' Sono in such a sad state of mind,” stated Khoza on the Bucs official website.

“This is the second time in a space of a month that Orlando Pirates had to attend to his spurious claims. First it was a case he went to open at the Hillbrow Police Station which after an investigation by Detective Cokozani was thrown out by the prosecutors.”

“Yesterday he tried to sneak in a case at the Labour Court hoping to get a default judgement resulting from a possible 'non-appearance' of respondents he sighted,” added the Bucs Chairman

“It is time that Julius get help as it is really painful to see him in such a compromised mental state.”

“It is pity that the Sowetan newspaper deemed it fit to provide such prominence to this sad episode in Julius Sono's life. Then again we live in a free society where one of our core freedoms is that of the media. Hopefully this prominence will help Julius get help,” he concluded
