Bring Etzebeth back to face music
SA Rugby must immediately recall Springbok player Eben Etzebeth to answer to allegations against him, the Western Cape ANC said yesterday, notes a News24 report.
This comes as more claims emerge against him and a group of relatives and friends known as the ‘Wolf Pack’.
It is alleged that they ‘terrorised’ Langebaan.
‘Given the weekend revelations about Etzebeth from respectable members of his community of Langebaan about his 'Wolf Pack' gang that has been terrorising them and their business establishments for a long time, the thuggery, the racism and violence, letting him put on the colours of the national team, to represent the very South Africans he is terrorising would be too high a price to pay for our patriotism,’ the ANC's provincial convener Lerumo Kalako said.
Kalako called on the NPA to investigate Etzebeth and the ‘Wolf Pack’ and to ‘charge all of them and everyone who is linked to these small-town thugs’.
‘Etzebeth and his gang are not above the law and the community deserves to see all these gangs in handcuffs and thrown in jail.’
