Bloemfontein Celtic have confirmed that their player Tebogo Potsane was detained over the weekend for impersonating a military official.
He was warned and released.
Celtic spokesman Sello Nduna has confirmed that the video was shot on Thursday last week.
The army is understood to have called Celtic, upon which Potsane went to a police station in Bloemfontein to account and he was released on a warning.
It’s believed that the uniform belongs to his friend who’s serving in the army in Bloemfontein.
The SA National Defence Force (SANDF) warned the public about putting on the uniform.
“Members of the public are advised that the SANDF camouflage has been registered (patent) for use solely by authorised members of the SANDF and or by those members identified by the chief of the SANDF and appointed as honorary members of the various SANDF units and or bases‚” it said in a statement.
The Defence Act 42 of 2002‚ Section 104 (5) and (6) stipulates that: “Any person who‚ without authority‚ possesses or wears prescribed uniforms distinctive marks or crests‚ or performs any prohibited act while wearing such uniform or with such uniform‚ distinctive marks or crests‚ is guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to a fine or imprisonment for a period not exceeding five years.”
