2015-01-21 00:00

A PIETERMARITZBURG high school soccer coach got embroiled in a Twitter war when he called the Minister of Sport Fikile Mbalula “insensitive”.

Dibben called him out, insisting it was wrong to correlate the recent ­murders of 12 people in a terrorist attack at French magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris earlier this month to a soccer match. The attack, which has sparked peaceful protests, has used the hashtag #jesuischarlie (I am Charlie) as an ­online rallying point. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
