Thabo Rakhale  ~ 

AFTER spending two nights in a holding cell, soccer star Thabo Rakhale cannot wait to sleep in his own bed.

Rakhale was yesterday released on bail of R1 500 by the Sebokeng Magistrates Court in the Vaal.

This followed his arrest on drunk driving charges on Tuesday morning. 


The former Orlando Pirates star crashed his Kia into a Ford Focus and a wall in Sebokeng zone 13.

It is alleged that at the time of the crash, Rakhale was drunk and could barely stand on his feet.

The People’s Paper published a front-page story about the incident yesterday.

Police spokesman Warrant Officer Simon Mofokatsana confirmed the Chippa United midfielder was released on R1 500 bail.

Mathapelo Morathane, whose wall was crushed by the star, welcomed his release.

She told Daily Sun that she will make sure that the soccer star rebuilds her wall.
