The Soweto giant released an official statement on allegations facing the Bafana Bafana star who is accused of assault by his girlfriend and was reportedly arrested on Monday morning.
The South Africa international apologized for his actions and he was allowed back into the bio-bubble, but it remains to be seen what kind of action the club’s hierarchy will take once the law enforcement has dealt with these fresh allegations against their attacking midfielder.
The following statement on their website
Orlando Pirates Football Club is aware of an alleged incident involving Thembinkosi Lorch.
This matter is currently in the hands of the authorities. As a club, we cannot comment further except to say that we condemn all forms of violence, especially violence against women and children. We support the rights of each and every individual but we strongly condemn violence.
This country has witnessed some of the most appalling cases of GBV and we do not take this matter lightly, however we need to respect the process undertaken by the authorities and allow the law to take its course.
