According to The Sowetan, Khuzwayo was scheduled to appear at the Randburg Magistrates’ Court on January 27 for allegedly interfering with police duties in December.

The Chiefs goalie is alleged to have held back police as they tried to arrest his friend at his home in Dainfern Estate.

He was arrested and made his first appearance at the Randburg Magistrates’ Court, where a bail of R1 500 was set.

The matter was then remanded to January 27.

Khuzwayo allegedly failed to appear in court on the set date, and a warrant of arrest was authorised on February 1.

Police spokesperson Kay Makhubele said the court gave Khuzwayo 10 days to explain why he missed his court date.
