Update: Orlando Pirates football star Thembinkosi Lorch’s sentencing postponed

The sentencing proceedings of Orlando Pirates football star Thembinkosi Lorch have been postponed to 4 September.

Lorch made a brief appearance at the Randburg Magistrates Court in Johannesburg on Friday morning.

This is in relation to the 2020 complaint laid by his then-girlfriend – Fundiswa Mathithibala – who accused the football star of assaulting her.

The defence in the case against Lorch requested the court to postpone the case for pre-sentencing arguments.

The unavailability of electricity at the Randburg Magistrates Court also contributed to the postponement of his sentencing.

Last month, the Orlando Pirates midfielder was found guilty of assaulting his ex-girlfriend at his home in Midrand.

Mathithibala has previously told the court that Lorch strangled and beat her during an argument.
