Alan Clark
Leopards look to get back to winning ways against Baroka FC in Nedbank Cup
13 March 2020, 9:10 PM

Black Leopards caretaker coach, Alan Clark says it will be important for his side to win the Nedbank Cup encounter against rivals Baroka FC for a morale boost in the league. Leopards and Baroka will play in the quarterfinals of the Nedbank Cup at Peter Mokaba stadium in Polokwane on Saturday afternoon.

Limpopo rivals, Baroka FC and Black Leopards FC will battle it out for a spot in the semifinals of the Nedbank Cup. Both teams had a good run in the competitioon in 2011 when Baroka reached the semifinals, and Leopards made it to the finals.

Clark says the cup game is a great opportunity for them to return to their winning ways.

“The Nedbank can give us great opportunity to have a distraction away from the pressure of the league.”

Black Leopards’ alternative training ground in Polokwane is at the Ranch hotel, which is now being used as a quarantine site for South Africans returning from Wuhan, in China this week.

Clark says this will not affect their training.

“We wont be able to use the Ranch. As far as I understand, it will be on a lock-down for 21 days, but the Ranch is not our primary training facilities. So, it doesn’t affect us greatly. We have our primary facilities at Ladanna.”

Baroka coach, Dylan Kerr says he received correspondence from the Football Association in England about measures to combat the spread of coronavirus.

Kerr says he shared the correspondence with players.

“I got an email from PFA which is Professional Football Association in England just giving us the players and the club the role and responsibility we have to combat the spread of this coronavirus. Hopefully, they read email that I sent them. Don’t drink at the same bottle; don’t drink at the same cup,” says Kerr.

Kerr says they want to beat Leopards to make up for the losses they suffered in the league this season.

“We focus on Nedbank. The league close down for everybody. This is Nedbank quarterfinals. You know, the frustration of the PSL ABSA Premiership … we are all on 23 points. I think Leopards at the bottom with 20 on the same number of games now. So, it hurt them last week they will look for a revenge,” says Kerr.

Black Leopards are also not performing well in the league. They are at the bottom of the log, and they suffered their fourth successive defeat this week.

Meanwhile, the Premier Soccer League says it will not comment on the safety measures in stadiums for coronavirus because the government is dealing with the situation.

King Dalindyebo
Correctional Service conducting investigation into King Dalidyebo’s parole
13 March 2020, 7:13 PM

Correctional Services says it is conducting an investigation to determine whether the parole of AbaThembu King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo continues or not. This comes after King Dalindyebo was arrested at the Bumbane Great Place on charges of assault and malicious damage to property.

Abathembi King Dalindyebo being arrested:

He allegedly attacked his son, Prince Azenathi Dalindyebo and his wife.

Azenathi allegedly sustained injuries and his wife has been hospitalised.

Spokesperson Singabakho Nxumalo says the king has been released on warning, and an investigation is underway.

β€œHe subsequently appeared in court where he was released on warning. What’s important at this stage is to get all the facts so we could put together a profile that must go before the parole board, to make a determination whether there were any forms of deviation from the parole conditions that will determine whether or not the parolee in this case Dalindyebo will continue to be out in the community or will have to serve the remainder or his parole back in our care,” says Nxumalo.

In the video below, SABC News Reporter, Lwandile Bulali sheds more light on circumstances surrounding the king’s arrest:

The Spokesperson of King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo has sought to explain the incident that occurred at the Bumbane Great Place in the Eastern Cape.

King Dalindyebo’s Spokesperson, Prince Mthunzi Ngonyama says Prince Azenathi refused the king’s earlier requests for him and his wife to vacate the premises.

“When he was about to be released from prison he asked that he sent a delegation there … the parole board people, that he needs that place to be emptied because he does not want any confrontation with anyone there. Azenathi is Acting King. The response that we got is that he never had a problem with that … that anytime when the king was to come he can come, but just when the king was out there was now a different tune altogether from their side. They wanted to negotiate and all that. So, the king was not happy about that. So, anyway he waited thinking that at some point they will then accept what he’s requesting them to do. No action. Then he went there this morning,” explains Ngonyama.
