FORMER Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana player, Steve ‘Chippa’ Lekoelea, was never ready for what happened to him. The faded soccer star found himself in trouble and suffered a serious beating from women who went out to have fun at Buti’s Inn in Zone 3, Sebokeng.


Move! understands that Steve’s sin was to grab one of the women from behind and this made  the woman and two others who were with her very angry. A security guard who witnessed the incident claims that Steve was trying to score a chick but he used the wrong tactics which landed him in trouble. “These ladies were already leaving because the club was closing. He grabbed one woman’s behind and she told him that she didn’t like what he was doing. Steve told the girl that there was nothing wrong with touching her because he wanted to take her home, but things got out of hand,” says our source.


A car guard at the club claims that Steve kept on touching the woman’s bum, and things got out of control as the three women descended on him like vultures tackling a snake. It is understood that the three women gave him a serious hiding. “The ladies lost their cool. They grabbed him by the neck, lifted him up and dropped him on the ground like a bag of potatoes. One of the girls even lifted her skirt and relieved herself on his face. They stomped on him in a fit of rage.  Steve was helpless and if we didn’t intervene, he could have landed in hospital or killed,”  says the car guard, who asked not to be named. Move! also spoke to one of Buti’s Inn bosses, who asked not to be named, and he confirmed that Steve was beaten up. “When the incident happened, my car guards came to tell me that Steve was being beaten by women in the parking lot. I told them that they must stop the fight, which they did. He is a regular here and I don’t know how the fight started. I will call him to get his side of the story,” says the boss. When contacted for comment, the fuming Steve said, “Eintlik, o batla ke reng? (What do you want me to say?). I am not going to say anything about the incident because it’s a lie. Nobody beat me up, so go to hell because you are still going write whatever you like.”


It is reportedly not the first time that Steve finds himself being beaten by people and nursing bruises.  He was apparently roughed up at Mid-Corner Chisanyama, also in the Vaal, two years ago after he made moves on another woman.  The woman's boyfriend got angry and beat him up. Steve was also allegedly given another hiding by bouncers at Manhattan Hotel in Vereeniging.
