    Orlando Pirates suspends Thembinkosi Lorch after the outcome of legal proceedings regarding assault

    It seems like this is not the best week for the Buccaneer star, Thembinkosi Lorch, as everything has just come to a pause for him.

    The Soweto giants, Orlando Pirates have put Lorch on suspension until the 12th of December after the court proceedings led to him being given a three-year suspended sentence. The star was found guilty of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm to his former girlfriend, Fundiswa Mathithibela and he was also fined R100 000.

    The statement reads as follows: “Orlando Pirates Football Club has noted the conclusion of legal proceedings involving our player, Thembinkosi Lorch. Consistent with Orlando Pirates Rules and Pledge, articulated in the statement the club issued when the legal proceedings commenced, the Club is commencing its internal process.”

    The club then also added by saying: “Having said that the Club has removed Thembinkosi Lorch from all Club activities until December 12. Orlando Pirates Football Club is grateful to its sponsors, supporters and the broader community for the space that you have provided in ensuring the rule of law and the clubs value system play out without hinderance.”

    Well done to the club for taking action against Gender Based Violence. Read the full statement here.
