Orlando Pirates made history over the weekend by becoming the first foreign team to play in Libya over in 10 years as sporting activities as a result of an ongoing war. The Buccaneers managed to honor their fixture against Al Ahly Benghazi as a result of a peace deal mediated by the United Nations. The match ended as a draw and many will take the point considering the fact that this game was away and in a hostile environment.
Fortune Makaringe was one of the players who traveled with the squad and without surprise he managed to also earn his place I the starting line up. The star looks to ha e been enjoying himself in North Africa as he shared numerous snaps on his Instagram profile. One of the picture included one where he posed alongside a mysterious woman and his caption left fans with more questions than answers.
Fortune Makaringe shared that he was grateful for the love he received from this woman in Libya. He went to refer to her as a mother figure and part of his global moms. The star then shared that genuine love doesn't see any color or race on his sentimental caption to the picture. The star is definitely a good guy and it seems like he hit it off with this woman and felt the need to share with his friends over the experience he had in the foreign country.
Al Ahly Benghazi will be visiting Orlando Pirates this time around over the weekend and there's no doubt that will get the same treatment seeing that wasn't any complaints from the Buccaneers. Usually team have it tough in foreign countries and this is a result of teams wanting to intimidate and mental weaken their opponents, however for Pirates is was the opposite as players managed to mingle with the people and even establish relationships as seen with Fortune Makaringe.

This was a heartwarming story from the star and it shows that Africans have the potential to unite regardless of color and race and express love to each other. This star will now have a familiar face the next time he is in Libya and the chances of that happening are high considering that Orlando Pirates is a club that prioritizes continental football.
