The Buccaneers released a statement on Monday morning confirming that Motshwari would remain suspended from football activities pending an investigation. At the time Bucs did not reveal any further detail of the player's police charge or investigation save to say that "the matter is subject to a legal process and the club is, therefore, unable to make further comment" at the time.
It has now been revealed that he was arrested for allegedly beating up his girlfriend at a night club over the weekend. He was subsequently released as the case was dropped due to lack of evidence. Reports claim that he was caught with another girl by his main girlfriend. She allegedly drove off on his car, which led to him chasing her down and beating her when he caught up with her.
Motshwari has now blamed his ordeal on black people, saying that the hatred black people have for each other is to be blamed for what has been said about him on social media.
“One thing I can assure you of is that I am not an aggressive individual. I've never had a fight with anyone in my life, male or female. Why would I begin today if it will jeopardize my career? This was crushing Ben's heart, he claimed, because people were writing all kinds of things about him without hearing his side of the story.
“The unfortunate thing about black folks is this. He stated, "We constantly want to destroy another black guy." Meanwhile, the star has been suspended by Pirates. The club announced in a statement that the player had been charged by the police.
Motshwari is still suspended by the club.
