Orlando Pirates midfielder Ben Motshwari was recently suspended by the club on alleged Gender Based Violence (GBV) charges.
The suspension had been issued by Orlando Pirates a couple of weeks ago with the club confirming that Motshwari would be frozen out pending police investigations.
At the time that was all the information Pirates were willing to give out, and they have decided to remain tight lipped as they allowed the law to take its course with Motshwari. The player has subsequently not been able to train with the club or be a part of any club-related activities since his suspension.
Details then soon emerged on the same evening that Orlando Pirates suspended Motshwari. The shocking revelations claimed that the player was in fact involved in a GBV incident with his partner, but still, not a lot of widespread noise came from those media claims and it seemed as if this particular case was given the privacy the Buccaneers had originally been hoping for.
Now a few weeks have since passed, and a few more details have emerged.
According to The Citizen, a source has come forward and claimed that Motshwari was in fact FRAMED by somebody who is not very fond of the Pirates star.
The source revealed that the person framing Motshwari brought it to the public’s attention that he had a gun and is a violent person who does not care about anybody but himself.
Motshwari was reportedly fetched at the Rand Stadium – where Orlando Pirates usually hold their training sessions – and then locked into the back of a police van.
“I know a lot of people have been asking themselves when is Stiga (Motshwari) coming back (to Pirates). But this thing (of the player being arrested) was a publicity stunt by the lady (baby mother),” said the source.
“You saw on the papers that there were accusations of a gun, how does someone like Ben go out and pull out a gun on another person? It doesn’t really make sense, I know this because I’ve witnessed what these people (Motshwari and his baby mother) get up to when they fight.
“They fight like every normal couple. I really don’t think he has a gun. That man loves his job, he wouldn’t be doing such things (carrying a gun around people) and it’s good that he is going back to training on Monday, or sometime this week because the investigations didn’t find him guilty anywhere,” concluded the source.
When can Motshwari play again?
Now that Motshwari’ charges for GBV (Gender Based Violence) have been dropped, he’s free to train and should be back for their matches after the upcoming international break.
