Pitso Mosimane has began the mind games ahead of Al Ahly’s crunch meeting with Mamelodi Sundowns this weekend in the CAF Champions League Quarterfinals.

Al Ahly played out to a grueling 1-1 draw against arch rivals Zamalek on Monday night and Pitso Mosimane believes the Egyptian FA are doing his side no favours with regards to the fixture congestion they’re facing.

Mamelodi Sundowns already departed for Egypt yesterday and Mosimane believes being the only Egyptian team representing the country in Africa’s elite competition should warrant some special concession by the EFA.

Mamelodi Sundowns are resting while Al Ahly are playing – Pitso Mosimane

“Mamelodi Sundowns are resting, we are playing so what does it mean to you? For me, if I had my way, because Ahly is the only team that is playing CAF Champions League representing Egypt, we would protect Ahly if I was Egypt.” Pitso Mosimane told journalists following the Cairo derby last night.

“We don’t put the game of Zamalek, most especially when Sundowns are pushing their games back. We didn’t even rest but it’s the way it is in Egypt so hopefully, but one day more, one day less, it doesn’t really mean that we will lose the pressure. But, yes of course the conditions are different, but we just see that we dropped a little bit in the end but it’s the program, the schedule of Egypt,

“Mamelodi Sundowns are a good team, I created a monster and it’s here to bite me. It’s okay, it’s football. I saw Pep (Guardiola) playing against Barcelona when he was at Bayern (Munich) and he lost to Barcelona, I hope Pitso Mosimane doesn’t lose to Sundowns,”

A man and his wife were arrested after allegedly plotting a cash-in-transit heist, with three hijacked vehicles found at their home.

Cash-in-transit heist: CIT robbery ‘in planning stages’ foiled by SAPS

Police in Johannesburg believe that they have managed to foil a cash-in-transit (CIT) heist before it even took place, with two people arrested after a raid on their Marikana home led to the discovery of three hijacked vehicles and a plot to stage an audacious robbery. 

Cash-in-transit heists have been a frequent scourge on communities across the country in recent years, and luckily a cool, calm and collected driver like Leo Prinsloo wasn’t required to fend off the attackers this time.

Crime stoppers descend on Gauteng home

South African Police Service (SAPS) spokesperson Captain Lloyd Ramovha said in a statement on Tuesday 11 May that the raid was conducted by the Rustenburg Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Investigation team, who were assisted by the Special Task Force, Crime Intelligence, Johannesburg Metro Police and Gauteng Flying Squad. 

He said that these teams followed up on information of the possible cash-in-transit robbery that was “still at a planning stage”.

“The team descended at a house in Teme section, Marikana on the afternoon of Monday, 10 May 2021. Three vehicles, two Audis and a Jeep that were confirmed as hijacked earlier this year in Douglasdale and Wierdabrug policing precincts respectively were recovered,” he said.

The owner of the house and his wife were immediately arrested for possession of stolen property and conspiracy to commit crime, with the investigating officers concluding that the vehicles were set to be used in an upcoming robbery. 

“Investigation revealed that the recovered vehicles were allegedly brought to the house which was assigned to be used as a safe house once the robbery has taken place. Further details of other implicated suspects are being followed up and they should be arrested soon,” said Ramovha. 

The arrested suspects aged 41 and 29-years-old are expected to appear in the Tlhabane Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday 12 May.
