I just love it when the police and government think they can get away with a lie, and then get stone cold busted, don’t you? On the 3rd of February,
it was reported:
Thieves have forced the postponement of the Absa Premiership match between Kaizer Chiefs and Moroka Swallows which was set for the FNB Stadium
This was after electric cables at the stadium were stolen yesterday.
PSL COO Professor Ronnie Schloss confirmed that the game between Amakhosi and the Dube Birds have been postponed due to the damage caused by criminals
at the Soccer City
But then, the very next day, this was reported:
Police have rubbished claims for the Premier Soccer League that the postponement of this weekend’s clash between Kaizer Chiefs and Moroka
Swallows at Soccer City was because of cable theft at the stadium.
PSL COO Professor Ronnie Schloss told KickOff.com yesterday that the match had to be moved to a later day because of the theft.
However, warrant officer Gordon Billing now insists that there was no theft – rather just that wet cables had been the reason for the postponement.
(Pretty strong word there. . . “Insists”)
Please can I have a show of hands from all of you who think this is pure horse dung! Well Done, give yourself a pat on the back!! I didn’t fall for
it either (who the hell would??). Anyway, they thought they could cover it up and that they got away with it…….
Enter the wonderful world of the e-mail and information sharing age, most importantly, photos that show the story is a complete crock! Now, I have
embedded pictures that are savory for viewing and they can be seen below.
(PS – I do not have a weblink for these photos, and can not find them anywhere on the internet, I received them directly from a reliable source in
Here are the tools used for the job
A nice 11KV sign warning people (too bad these guys didn’t heed the warning)
*** WARNING – BIG WARNING!! The following photos are VERY disturbing images of people who have been electrocuted to death!! You view these photos
ENTIRELY with your own discretion. I do NOT want to receive any hate replies, nor do I want to upset anyone, so you HAVE been warned. I post the links
because people are always saying “no photos – no proof” . If you do not have a strong stomach, I advise not to view them – You HAVE been
warned! *** (PS – MODS – I sincerely hope I’m not breaking any rules with these links – Just want to get the evidence out there)
So why would the government and police lie about this? Well, there is a U2 concert being held there on the 13th February, and who wants this kind of
media coverage!! Once they became aware of these photos (and no doubt they must have), they had no choice but to do a 180, on the 7th February.
In the manholes, about 50 cables were severed and most of them were removed.
"The thieves entered the manholes and cut the cables randomly. This has resulted in added delays as the cables needed to be first tested and matched
to find the continuity and then replaced. This work is ongoing," he said after a meeting with City Power on Monday.
(Just a heads up – Soccer City is AKA FNB Stadium)
However, the complete story is still not being told, as can be seen in the photos. I don’t see any excavations or manholes in these photos, and
these guys didn’t exactly move after wards.
