In anticipation of this week’s 1295th edition of Soccer Laduma, we preview some of the features included. The latest edition will be available at your nearest outlet on Wednesday, October 12th.
Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana Feature
He may not have particularly started life as a Kaizer Chiefs player with a bang, and even took time to convince the club to sign him after spending a few weeks on trial in Naturena, but Bimenyimana is fast gaining a reputation as the one of the go-to men for the side. He has netted four goals in the last two league games, an incredible return for a new signing, especially considering he’s the only out-and-out striker in coach Arthur Zwane’s squad. Is there more where his six goals have come from, or will the lanky marksman quickly fizzle out? What is most noteworthy about the Burundian’s game and manner of play? This Soccer Laduma feature zooms in on Chiefs’ man of the moment!
Orlando Pirates Strikers Feature
Just where are the goals? This is a question many of the Bucs faithful are asking themselves, with the club struggling to find the back of the net. Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana, who joined Kaizer Chiefs when the season had already started and then had to wait for his work permit, has scored six goals, which is the same number Pirates have conjured up in the DStv Premiership thus far. That’s how poor coach Jose Riveiro’s men have been in front of goal. How do they sort out the problem? Will Kermit Erasmus make a difference? In this feature, Soccer Laduma looks into the situation.
Aaron Mokoena Interview
Nicknamed ‘Mbazo’ for his penchant to stop opposition attackers dead in their tracks and chop them down, Mokoena remains Bafana Bafana’s most-capped player. He spent more than 16 years playing in some of Europe’s top leagues and played in two World Cups, including 2010 showpiece on home soil. But what has he been up to since he left Cape Town City, where he was assistant coach to Jan Olde Riekerink? What stands out as the toughest period of his playing career? What does he admire about Lucas Radebe? The ex-defender answers these and other questions in his wide-ranging interview with Soccer Laduma this week.

Paul Mitchell Interview
Having been at the forefront for a large majority of the international transfers of South African players to Europe over the last decade, perhaps there is no one better to best explain the intricacies of a deal of that nature than Mitchell. The UK-born intermediary has changed the local game and a number of lives for the better. Usually, he prefers to keep a low profile and let his work speak for him. However, Soccer Laduma recently caught up with the agent, who represents Keagan Dolly, among others, to talk about his time in the country, how FIFA’s imminent laws could change the game forever and how Siyanda Xulu was so close to joining Barcelona.
Cristiano Ronaldo Poster
One of the best players of his generation, considered the very best by some, Ronaldo continues to break records and defy logic. Having come on for injured Anthony Martial on the half hour mark of Manchester United’s game against Everton last Sunday, the marauding attacker netted just before half-time for his 700th career goal. The Portuguese international has had a tough time of it of late, even being linked with an exit from Old Trafford, but he is sticking it out and is showing his undeniable quality whenever given the opportunity. In this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, we pay tribute to CR7 for his career milestone with a must-have poster of the superstar!
This week, we hear from Brandon Truter, who opens up on his departure from AmaZulu and why he walks away with his head held high. The Cape Town-born coach also talks about the Usuthu players’ reaction, as well as what his next step is. SiyagobhozaIn this week’s edition of the popular Siyagobhoza section, there is news on who Kaizer Chiefs could offer to get their target from a DStv Premiership rival, potential hurdle in a Mamelodi Sundowns player’s possible move, a career-defining period for an Orlando Pirates man, and more…
