Stock Theft Charges Withdrawn Against Former PSL Star

A former PSL player can breathe a huge sigh of relief after stock theft charges that were levelled against him have been withdrawn.

Reports emerged from Botswana this week that former PSL player, Ofentse Nato, had been in trouble with the law in that country for allegedly being in possession of stolen goats.

It had been alleged that the 29-year-old Botswana international and an accomplice were allegedly nabbed for being in possession of two goats which they were allegedly unable to account for. 

The midfielder, who played for Bidvest Wits and Mpumalanga Black Aces in the PSL, and his co-accused were allegedly arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning after the police stopped the car they were driving in and seized the goats after a search.

Nato’s current club, Botswana Premier League side Township Rollers, issued a statement confirming the latest information regarding the star.

“Township Rollers Football Club welcomes back midfielder Ofentse Nato, who resumed training this morning after allegations levelled against him were withdrawn at the Mogobane Customary Court on Tuesday. It must be noted that although he was a suspect in the matter, according to the law he remained innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt and there was no criminal conviction. Now that the matter has been withdrawn, we welcome back the player. We urge the public to give due respect to Nato, who has represented the country with distinction as a senior national team player for a decade,” Rollers confirmed in their statement.
