Ncikazi’s infamous rant on ill-treatment of Orlando Pirates!

“One, as Africans, let us change this mentality that when opponents come to Tanzania. You are so hostile to them that you treat them like animals.” the Orlando Pirates coach said.

“We saw inhumane treatment everywhere we go. We were treated so badly. This is a game of sports that should unite us.

“Why do Africans do this to other Africans? Do you really think the hostility that Orlando Pirates get when we come here.

“The treatment that we got from the stadium to the hotel, from the airport. Why do you do this as Africans to other Africans?”
