Last week began with the news that Orlando Pirates defender, Happy Jele had been arrested by the Gauteng Traffic Police High Speed Unit on the morning of Monday, the 4th of September 2017. Jele was travelling on the M1 near Sandton, averaging a speed of 223km/h, exceeding the prescribed limit of 120km/h. The Orlando Pirates defender was arrested on the spot and formally charged for reckless driving and exceeding the speed limit.
After suffering an inconspicuous defeat away to Cape Verde on the 1st of September 2017, Bafana Bafana and fans alike were slightly deflated and amiss as the hopes of Bafana Bafana making it to Russia 2018 were left jaded, but with 3 qualifying games remaining and a crucial reverse home game against Cape Verde themselves on the horizon, Bafana Bafana and fans realistically maintained optimism that Stuart Baxter’s men would make the necessary strides toward the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia as 3 victories from the remaining 3 qualifiers would ensure that Bafana Bafana top their group in the qualifying rounds, leaving the national team only one more round of fixtures away from an improbable world cup finals. Naturally, this meant that stakes were elevated to fever pitch high as the 1st of the 3 remaining qualifiers, the reverse home game against Cape Verde at Durban arched Moses Mabhida Stadium on Tuesday the 5th of September 2017, was a must win. To no ones apparent surprise, Bafana Bafana lost at home 😊. Truthfully, the only surprise was that the public was surprised at the national football team’s seemingly never-ending let downs.
Businessman, socialite, self-proclaimed politician, Kenny Kunene unsettled most when news reports from The Citizen broke out that the multiple club owner had miraculously come out scot free after he was attacked and shot at an incredible 21 times, with all 21 questionably bullets misfiring. Kenny Kunene told The Citizen by phone on Tuesday night that he was approaching Corlett Drive in Sandton near the M1 when a group of men in a white Lexus SUV pulled up, “I reversed to get away. When I hit the pavement, they came and shot at us. The cops say they have found 12 bullet casings at the scene.”, he claimed.
Friday, 8 September 2017 marked 50 days to The OR Tambo Centenary – #ORTambo100. The South African government duly celebrated the auspicious occasion by organising a panel discussion at the SABC Radio Park Auditorium, hosted by Nick Hamman (5FM), Masechaba Ndlovu (Metro FM) and Nigel Pierce (Good Hope FM). The event was attended by notaries, Oliver Reginald Tambo’s past colleagues and media alike.
