Two hijacked cars were found at the player's residence by acquaintances known by Phungwayo who is claiming no knowledge of any criminal activities.

According to close friend Joe Seanego, the fact that Phungwayo's charge has been moved from a stage 5 charge down to stage 1 is advantageous.

"At the moment we are still in court, as they are still going to inform us on when he is expected to appear in court again."
