Khune comes face-to-face with elephant


Kaizer Chiefs star Itumeleng Khune has revealed his wholesome encounter with an African elephant, which left the veteran goalkeeper showered with water. 

Interactions between humans and wildlife are not always guaranteed to be safe, however, Khune found himself on the humorous side of things when he was splashed with pool water by a giant elephant on his wildlife rendezvous.

The Chiefs goalie did not seem too shaken up by the experience of meeting the biggest land mammal as he stood quite close to the domineering creature. 

While it is one thing to be that close to such a huge animal, having a bit of fun with it is another, and Khune did just that in a moment worthy to be ticked off someone’s bucket list. 

Khune and his wife Sphelele seemed to have had loads of fun on their trip, and the couple seemingly decided to go again. 

In Khune’s post, his wife commented “can we go back?”, which the Amakhosi star responded to by saying “anytime wifey.” 

It is quite apparent that their safari trip was worthwhile, and the expedition of observing wildlife in their natural habitat can leave lasting memories. 

Meanwhile, on the football side of things, the Chiefs captain has made zero league appearances as his injury issues continue to keep him out of action. 

His side, however, has seen a turnaround in their fortunes as they have won back-to-back league games against Chippa United and Supersport United in their last two encounters. 

Your thoughts, please?
