Mau Mau confiscates newspaper's football kit

HARARE - Boxing promoter and Zanu PF activist Stalin Mau Mau confiscated football kit belonging to a local newspaper on Saturday after an off-target ball hit and damaged the view mirror of his car during a match.

Mau Mau had parked his Isuzu KB300 at Raylton Sports Club in Harare at an “Owner’s Risk” bay when a Financial Gazette defender cleared the ball during a communication league match against Zimpapers.

The ball strayed and hit the vehicle, leaving Mau Mau in a fit of rage.

Mau Mau first impounded the match ball, forcing the teams to use a replacement for the remaining six minutes of the game.

The renowned boxing enthusiast later returned with powerfully-built escorts and forcibly took 10 jerseys before driving away.

Pleas by Fingaz players and officials to calm Mau Mau down and persuade him to resolve the matter at a police station were turned down.   

A report was made at Five Avenue Police Post, where a theft docket, number RRB1765, was opened.
