Leremi is a marked man

Still on the Mike Tyson-lookalike Gift Leremi, we have it on good authority that Mamelodi Sundowns have come up with a novel way of keeping the wayward soccer wizard away from his first love - booze.

Still on the Mike Tyson-lookalike Gift Leremi, we have it on good authority that Mamelodi Sundowns have come up with a novel way of keeping the wayward soccer wizard away from his first love - booze.

Following the gifted midfielder's well-documented move to Sundowns, mining magnate Patrice Motsepe ordered that an audit of all shebeens, taverns, pubs and night spots in Mamelodi, Midrand and neighbouring informal settlements, townships, villages, farms and suburbs be conducted as a "matter of urgency".

When Leremi scored his first goal for the club in their SAA Supa8 quarterfinal game against Bloemfontein Celtic, the billionaire club owner ordered that the audit be fast-tracked as it was clear it was now becoming a "matter of priority".

The audit, we understand, has now been completed and all the drinking holes in all the said areas will soon be bombarded with flyers bearing Leremi's photograph as well as the following words: "This is Gift Leremi.

"In the highly likely event that he strays into your premises, please calmly lead him back to his car, convince him that it would be better if you take the wheel and drive him straight to Chloorkop, where a handsome reward will be waiting for you. Humbly yours, Patrice."
