Prince Nxumalo laughs off rumours he is jinxed

Ajax Cape Town striker Prince Nxumalo has hit out at conjecture that his recent ill-fortune somehow relates to him being jinxed.
The 26-year-old recently recovered from meningitis - the bout was the latest in a series of setbacks for the Urban Warriors target man.
Nxumalo suffered an epileptic attack hours before Ajax's MTN8 semi-final against Wits last season and the words 'muti' and jinx have again resurfaced.
However, the Bafana Bafana striker is unpeturbed by what is said about him off the field.
“I’m a Christian and I don’t believe in things like that,” Nxumalo tells KickOff.com. “Everyone can talk I don’t care what they are saying as I know what the truth is.”
Nxumalo has assured Ajax fans that he has recovered fully and is ready to do battle with SuperSport United in Saturday’s Telkom Cup clash at the Lucas Moripe Satdium.
“Look, we need to start building momentum and pick up our first victory. The match against SuperSport will be a good test for us but we have been preparing adequately,” Nxumalo concluded.
