2012-05-10 00:00

AN Apple iPad that was allegedly stolen has landed Maritzburg United’s midfielder in hot water with the team’s bosses.

Prince Wilson Olomu will face disciplinary action after allegedly being caught in possession of the iPad.

He was arrested in Howick Road on Friday last week and appeared in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court on Monday.

Maritzburg United spokesperson Younus Kadodia said yesterday: “We have met the player and he will undergo a disciplinary hearing after the home game against Moroka Swallows [on May 19].

“We understand that he is not guilty until proven otherwise.”

Olomu (25) scored 13 goals in the 2009/10 season while playing for Bloemfontein Celtic.

He is due back in court on Tuesday. He could not be reached for comment yesterday as there was no answer from his cellphone.
