FORMER Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana midfielder Steve "Chippa" Lekoelea is accused of dribbling his way to sexual pleasure - without the lady's consent. ACCUSED: Steve 'Chippa' Lekoelea allegedly didn't play ball in the sex game. Picture by Veli Nhlapo Lekoelea allegedly raped a 20-year-old Vereeniging woman after an all night drinking match in Sharpeville, south of Gauteng, last month.
The once popular footie was arrested then released on R2000 bail when he appeared in the Vereeniging Magistrates' Court on June 11. According to the indictment, Lekoelea, an alleged shifting dice gambler, picked up the woman from an unknown spot on Friday June 8 and went with her to a friend's party in the township's Zone 14 section. "They went there and drank until the wee hours of Saturday June 9," says our deep throat, who asked not to be named. After their gallivanting, the 33-year-old dribbling wizard drove the woman to her house in Sonlandpark, Vereeniging. It is understood that upon their arrival, the girl got out of Lekoelea's car and walked into her room with the former soccer star in tow. It is alleged that Lekoelea then took out a condom and forced himself on the victim. "She was raped in her house," says the source. The woman, who did not want to speak to the media, went to lay a charge of rape against Lekoelea at Vereeniging Police Station. The police took her to a local district surgeon for treatment and a medical examination. "The police are still waiting for the results and will take the matter from there," says our mole. Vereeniging police spokesperson Shado Mashobane confirms that Lekoelea was arrested for rape and released on bail. He will appear again at the same court on July 16.
Mashobane declines to provide further details of the case, citing the sub-judice rule.
Lekoelea couldn't be reached for comment at the time of going to press.
Chippa, who was formerly known as Steve Motsiri, began his career at 16 at Moroka Swallows before joining Pirates and becoming a household name
