Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
It was amazing to hear some reporters and journalists claiming that Kaizer Chiefs needed luck to win against Bidvest Wits University in the Telkom Knockout Cup recently.
With due respect to a gallant display by the Students, Chiefs were the better of the two on the day and, if they took the chances that they created, they should have scored two or three goals before Wits opened their account.
The game between Mamelodi Sundowns and AmaZulu was equally interesting. But once again, if the type of goal that was scored by Surprise Moriri was scored by Chiefs, for sure those reporters would have a whole magazine or TV channel to talk about it. While I agree that it was one of the best goals ever, it took Sylvester Ndaba to quote the latest rule and educate me, and hopefully not only me but the rest of the country.
Reporters please do not take sides.
Sylvester Ndaba was, unfortunately, wrong in his explanation of the rule. The fact of the matter is that Ace Ncobo did not give a signal to restart the second half of extra-time and that's an infringement of law 8 of the laws of the game, which dictates what is expected from a referee in such situations.
The "goal" should not have been given. - Sports Editor
