Orlando Pirates Director passes away

Orlando Pirates have confirmed the club’s Technical Director (TD), Stanley “Screamer” Tshabalala, has passed away.


The club known as the Sea Robbers announced that Shabalala died on Thursday. The news follows after the Technical Director shot during a break-in at this home in March.

Full Statement:

“The Tshabalala and Orlando Pirates Family is announcing the sad and untimely passing of Stanley Tshabalala this afternoon in hospital. Bra Stan, as he was affectionately referred to by everybody, succumbed to the injuries he suffered when he was shot in March this year.

“The Tshabalala and Orlando Pirates Family will furnish the details in due course. The public is advised to await the provision of the details for the arrangements going forward.”


The news dominated online platforms in recent weeks. The Sea Robbers surprisingly part ways with Vincent Pule, 32. According to SABC Sport’s Mazola Molefe, the Qwa-Qwa-born Pule is signing for United after completing his medical test.

“SABC Sport can reveal winger Vincent Pule is on the verge of putting pen to paper with his new club following his Orlando Pirates departure,” the report said. “The 32-year-old is understood to have completed his medical at SuperSport United and will move to the next step and discuss personal terms as he looks for a fresh chapter that includes reuniting with coach Gavin Hunt,” Mazola added.

Additionally, the same report says forrmer Kaizer Chiefs forward Keagan Dolly has already completed his move to Matsatsantsa, subject to an official announcement. “SuperSport have also recently concluded a deal to sign another experienced winger in Keagan Dolly and Pule’s imminent arrival will be yet another boost,” the report concluded.


Former Orlando Pirates forward Kermit Erasmus is looking determined to shine next season. The training is happening at home.

A section of Buccaneers are still feeling shock and despair after Erasmus was released last month.

After making just 11 appearances that included one goal last season, the 34-year-old striker was unsurprisingly released by Orlando Pirates last month.

“Kermit rejoined the Buccaneers in 2022 after nine years away and made an immediate impact by helping us clinch the MTN8 title. With over 117 matches under his belt in Pirates colours, Romeo has solidified his legendary status at the club,” Orlando Pirates said in the statement that also bid farewell to Thabang Monare, Siyabonga Mpontshane, and Richard Ofori.

Erasmus has since been hotly linked with a move to his former club SuperSport United. Meanwhile, the Gqeberha-born legend has been spotted doing some training at his Johannesburg home. – CHECK OUT THE PICTURES HERE.
