Former Protea gets a ‘warning for assaulting teen’

Thami Tsolokile

Tsolokile was arrested last week Thursday following an incident in Pinelands.

Disgraced former South African cricketer Thami Tsolokile has been released on warning after being arrested for assaulting a 14-year-old learner.

Tsolokile was arrested last week Thursday following an incident near Pinelands High School, where he allegedly assaulted a learner from the school after the pupil allegedly threw stones at his vehicle.

Yesterday the accused made a brief appearance at the Goodwood Magistrates’ Court where he was formally charged with assault.

Dressed casually in black jeans and a jacket, the 35-year-old stood calmly before Magistrate Sean Lee as prosecutors told the court he was out on a warning.

Tsolokile is one of four cricketers to be banned from the match by Cricket South Africa for ‘contriving to fix a match’ during the 2015 Ram Slam T20 in 2015.

Tsolokile was served with a 12 year suspension last month which came into effect on August, 1st.
