Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates captain Happy Jele has appeared in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Tuesday after he was arrested for speeding. The Bucs skipper was caught speeding at 223km/h in a 120km/h zone early on Monday morning. He was driving in his BMW 351i on the M1 near Sandton. Jele claimed that he was rushing home to attend to a sick child, which the Gauteng department of community safety found to be false. He was arrested for reckless driving and exceeding the prescribed limit of 120km/h. The Pirates player later issued an apology saying: "I refer to the news of my arrest this morning which is making rounds in the media. It is true I was apprehended by the enforcement law agency driving at high speeds. I was taken into the police station for statements and procedures from which I was released on bail."He also apologised for bringing the club into disrepute and said he would take full responsibility for his actions."I have no excuse for my action and I can only wish the club, the supporters and the public at large to accept my apology as I realise the number of people I have disappointed."The matter was postponed to October 19. Jele is out on bail of R1 000.
