Where is ex-Sundowns star Siyabonga Zulu?

Where did Siyabonga Zulu, a former Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns defender disappear to?

A local publication, Sowetan reported in January 2019 that the soccer player Siyabonga Zulu got fired by Mamelodi Sundowns after missing his disciplinary hearing and going AWOL.

His sister, however, rubbished the claims and told the publication that his sangoma baby mama destroyed his soccer career by constantly showing up at his club to complain about him.

This is after the TV show No Excuse Pay Papgeld camera crew arrived at his club looking for him to answer for his maintenance squabbles with his baby mama.

The baby mama also revealed that the defender crashed her car and left her with a R50 000 debt to fix her Audi A5. Zulu’s mother accused his baby mama of putting a spell on him and using him for his money.

iHarare reported in June 2022 that Zulu’s sangoma baby mama Gogo Maweni revealed on Podcast and Chill how she bewitched him.

“I gotta take credit for that though. I don’t know how to answer you guys, I’m trying to be a good girl. Honestly, I bewitched him. Well, let’s not say I bewitched him. It’s a thing of ‘you think you know better when I’ve helped you’. When you’re now on that pedestal you think you know.”

“You cannot play for a weak a** team and I’m busy taking care of you. You get a good contract and I get pregnant; we move in together. All is well, you don’t have a car at that time, you take mine and crash it and leave it somewhere in Soweto. And you’re busy cheating.”

Also, his family was just toxic, horrible and annoying. But honestly speaking it was a thing of me saying it’s enough now, imma teach you something,” she said on the show,

The Citizen reported in February 2022 that the former Mamelodi Sundowns and Pirates player Siyabonga Zulu stopped training with Pretoria Callies after a month at the GladAfrica Championship side.

A source revealed that though Zulu was liked by the technical staff at the club, and he did well at training, they couldn’t sign him up because of financial problems. The source added that Zulu’s management advised him to stop training with Callies.

“The club was dilly-dallying when it came to putting something on the table for him and so they could see it was just wasting everyone’s time”, said the source.

The source added that the club is working with skeleton staff and chased away all the experienced, top earning players.

The star reportedly played for All Stars and Black Leopards for a while (2019 to 2021) after exiting Sundowns in 2019. It is unclear which team Zulu is playing for in 2023.
