The Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates defender Sangweni is unfortunately experiencing a family tragedy soon after Boxing Day in South Africa

Orlando Pirates administrator Floyd Mbele revealed the news to the football fraternity and stressed that their player, Siyabonga Sangweni was not the son who allegedly fired the shot.

Two other Sangweni brothers also play in the South African Premier Soccer League, Thamsanqa Sangweni of Mamelodi Sundowns (24) and Mandla Sangweni (26) of AmaZulu. The latter is a goalkeeper and hails from Siyabonga's home town in Durban.

At the time of going to press neither the motive, nor the identification of the shooter was released.

EDIT: The fully story was later released and confirmed here.
