Lightning kills football team

There is a strange belief in SA that if you visit a Sangoma you can ask him or her to orchestrate lightning strikes on your enemies courtesy of you, I've never been one to belive in such kak but I'm starting to change my perception because all 11 members of a football team were killed by a bolt of lightning which left the other team unhurt in Congo.

Thirty other people received burns at the match in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Kinshasa newspaper L'Avenir said local opinion - known to believe in charms and spells - was divided over whether someone had cursed the team.

The two sides were drawing 1-1 in the match in eastern Kasai Province when the lightning struck the visiting team.

"The athletes from [the home team] Basanga curiously came out of this catastrophe unscathed," the paper said.

There was no official confirmation of the report - a rebel war affects much of the east of the country.

The first strike

In a similar incident at the weekend, a premier league soccer match in Johannesburg was brought to an abrupt end when lightning struck the ground.

"Check the worry in my eye,get up and play you pussies!"

Half the players from both teams - the Jomo Cosmos and the Moroka Swallows - dropped to the turf.

Several writhed on the grass holding their ears and their eyes. Spectators and coaching staff ran onto the pitch to help. Fortunately no-one was killed.
