Orlando Pirates midfielder Thembinkosi Lorch was captured by police the previous evening after he supposedly beat up his sweetheart.
This comes after the footie’s better half Nokhupiwa Mathithibala opened up an instance of an attack against him at Midrand Police headquarters showing that Lorch choked her after she had gotten some information about his whereabouts.

The occurrence, as indicated by a police explanation, seen by Sunday World, occurred on Sunday evening at the soccer player’s intricate in Midrand. Mathithibala states that Lorch became angry after she asked him where he had been following his disappearance for six hours leaving her at his house where they were supposed to chill after washing their two cars.

She said the soccer player slapped her and thereafter started strangling her, sitting on top of her, while she lay on the ground. The statement shows that Mathithibala indicated that Lorch later took the car she was driving and drove off with his friend leaving her stranded and without transport.

A police official close to the case said Lorch was picked up by officers in the wee hours of Monday morning, and he slept in police cells. The source revealed that the Orlando Pirates player appeared in court today for a bail hearing

Gender-based violence is a major issue in South Africa. No one is above the rule of law even celebrities like Lorch will have to face the wrath of the law if they misbehave. We look forward to hearing more from the police as the story develops.
