Orlando Pirates have officially suspended midfielder Ben Motshwari after he was formally charged by police on Monday morning.


In a statement on their official website, Orlando Pirates didn’t reveal why Motshwari’s was charged by police.

The Buccaneers did however confirm that Motshwari will remain suspended pending ‘an investigation’ before reserving their right to not comment further on the matter.


And that’s because the matter that led to Motshwari being charged by police is subject to a legal process, the club said.

Motshwari is the second Orlando Pirates player to be formally charged by police in the last 12 months.


In September 2020 star attacker Thembinkosi Lorch was arrested and charged for allegedly assaulting his then girlfriend Nokuphiwa Mathithibala.

He was subsequently released on R2 000 bail before the charges against him were provisionally withdrawn in January 2021.



“Orlando Pirates Football Club can confirm that it has suspended midfielder Ben Mothswari after being charged by police this morning. Mr Motshwari will remain suspended, pending an investigation

“The matter is subject to a legal process and the club is, therefore, unable to make further comment until that process is complete,”
