A social media platform has again been used as a tool to target football personalities, this time posing as Patrick Mabedi on a fake Facebook account.
Former Kaizer Chiefs captain and assistant coach Mabedi has contacted this website informing us that his name has been misused by an impersonator.
According to Mabedi, a fake account is talking badly about his former employers.
The ex-centre-back says he has already opened a case with the relevant authorities both here in South Africa and in his native country of Malawi regarding the matter.
"Bad people are using my picture on Facebook and pretending like it's me," he tells KickOff.com.
"Unfortunately I'm not on Facebook and I don't have an account. I opened a case against these bad people who pretended it's me, and they use my picture.
"They are cowards because they can't be real and use their own picture. But Interpol police they are busy and they will face justice. Please expose them.
"These people they want to damage other people's image. But I did take the case to the police mind you, so I have got some other big people that I have used from my country Malawi. They will have to go through the Facebook to get their contact things.
"It's difficult but it tells me they are in South Africa. If you check the message that I sent you they are talking Zulu, others talking Afrikaans, so which means they are here locally. It can't be somewhere.
"I don't even do this Facebook, you know me, I don't do these things. They are going to be caught because there are people that are good also in technology, they will catch them."
