Theft robbery

Former Pirates footballer has been arrested for hijacking, armed robbery and house breaking.

Former Orlando Pirates star Patrick Phungwayo was arrested by the Hawks on Tuesday, 16 November. He was busted for house robbery alongside his friend.

He was found with a stolen Plasma TV. Audi was hijacked in Bramley and Kia stolen in Linden JHB, they were all fitted with false number plates.

Three illegal firearms, house breaking equipment, and Balaclavas have been recovered. It is reported that he had been actively involved in many house robberies.

Things are hectic in this country as poverty and economic challenges push people to do unthinkable things.

The 33 year old was a celebrated star, but now things have turned around. It’s sad that many former soccer players in Alex find themselves committing crime instead of being good guys and role models in the area.

He is expected to appear in the Joburg Magistrates Court today 18 November.
