The Jele statement:

I refer to the news of my arrest this morning, which is making rounds in the media. It is true I was apprehended by the enforcement law agency driving at high speeds.

I was taken into police station for statements and procedures, from which I was released on bail.

I would like to sincerely apologise for my recklessness and bringing the Club into disrepute and take full responsibility of my actions.

I have no excuse for my action and I can only wish the Club, the supporters and the public at large to accept my apologies as I realise the number of people I have disappointed.

Happy Quinton Jele.
