JOHANNESBURG – Former Orlando Pirates and KV Oostende player Andile Jali denied reports that was the one arrested on drunk driving charges in Pretoria over the weekend.
Many media reports had reported that Jali, just recently returned to South Africa following four years playing his trade with Belgium side KV Oostende, had been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in Pretoria on Saturday.
The Tshwane metro police however did not name the Bafana player that was caught drunk driving.
Tshwane Metro Police spokesperson Isaac Mahamba said that the reason for the 2018 court date is because of the blood test process.
“I can confirm that the soccer player that was arrested by the Tshwane Metro Police was released on a bail of R1,000 and will appear in court on 15 May 2018. The reason for this is because the blood samples process can take up to a year to receive and present to court.”
