Walter Musona’s agent Mike Ngobeni has dismissed social media reports claiming that his client is arrested in South Africa for housebreaking.
The reports suggested that Musona was nabbed by South African police for allegedly being part of a cartel that had been stealing property including television sets in that country and re-selling them in Zimbabwe.
But according to Sunday Mail, Ngobeni rubbished the claims and said the player’s friend Bothwell Maligasi is the one wanted by the police.
“Walter’s friend from Zimbabwe Bothwell Maligasi had asked Walter to accompany him somewhere after training but he said he was too tired to drive and in the end, he lent him his car and asked him to bring it back in the morning,” said the agent.
“The guy took the car and did what he did somewhere and they were running away from the police when he smashed the car. The police wanted to confirm that the car belonged to Walter and to understand the facts but they never arrested him.
“This guy (Maligasi) is the one wanted by the police and we have filed a report against him here. We are also going to make sure we file another report against him with Zimbabwean police.”
Musona, meanwhile, didn’t play on the final day of the season against Orlando Pirates on Saturday as he was not in the squad.
