Goal differencePirates’ 60 points trumped Ajax’s 60 by four goals on goal difference. Interestingly, Chiefs, in third, had a better goal difference than either team, and Sundowns, in fourth, had the best goal difference in the league, further underlining how tight the title race had been. PromotedJomo Cosmos, after only a year in the First Division, are headed back to the PSL after beating Bay United 5-4 in a penalty shootout at the Makhulong Stadium on Sunday. Black Aces, who will be playing in the First Division next season, ended their campaign with a 2-0 home loss to Moroka Swallows. Vasco Da Gama, meanwhile, thumped fellow Cape Town club Santos 3-0. Despite the win, they still finished second from bottom on the log and will go into the promotion/relegation playoffs. Ajax will be gutted to have missed out on the title after managing only one point from their last two matches in which there were six points on offer. A 4-0 defeat at the hands of Chiefs in their penultimate match was regarded by many as a temporary setback as they faced Maritzburg United, who had barely escaped relegation, in their final game, with home ground advantage. Cosmos topped the Inland Stream of the First Division by a healthy 10 points over Pretoria University, while Bay United edged Thanda Royal Zulu by a single point in the Coastal Stream. In other results, BidVest Wits and Platinum Stars drew 1-1, while three-time champions SuperSport United finished their season on a high with a 1-0 win at Free State Stars. Pirates’ coach Ruud Krol told the club’s website that the victory was one of the finest moments of his coaching career. He said: “From my experience the teams who are on top of the log heading into the last match never win their last matches and that happened today. It was good for us. Of course what it means is that I’m happy and I’m happy for my players. RockyHowever, less than 20 minutes into the second half their chances of finishing top of the table looked decidedly rocky after Maritzburg United took a 2-1 lead. The Urban Warriors appeared on course for the title, and a fairytale ending for coach Foppe de Haan in his last match before retiring, when they took lead in the 43rd minute through Khama Billiat. When the dust had settled on a fascinating day’s action, the Buccaneers were the champions on goal difference over Ajax, with Chiefs only a point behind them and Mamelodi Sundowns two points off the pace. PSL CHAMPIONS The Sea Robbers had taken the lead in the 38th minute through Bongani Ndulula, but it lasted only three minutes. Collins Mbesuma, a nemesis for Pirates in the past while with their great rivals Chiefs, headed past Senzo Meyiwa to level matters. Pirates’ victory and title suddenly leaves the club with the possibility of a season for the ages. They have won the PSL title and earlier in the season claimed the MTN 8 crown. Next up, they face First Division side Black Leopards in the final of the Nedbank Cup on Saturday. Win and they will secure a sparkling treble. “I saw my team this season bouncing back after some big defeats and we were coming back in the race for the championship and only big teams can do that and that is the consistency that you need to win something.” One of the most famous sayings in sport is attributed to New York Yankees’ legend Yogi Berra, who said: “It ain’t over till its over.” And so it proved on a thrilling final day of the PSL season as Orlando Pirates came from behind to snatch the title from Ajax Cape Town on Saturday. 23 May 2011 Heading into the final round of matches, three teams were in with a shot at claiming the honours. Ajax were in the pound seats, leading Pirates, in second, by two points, while Kaizer Chiefs were three point adrift and needed the two front-runners to trip up to lift the silverware. ‘We deserved it’“I told my players that we deserved it because we worked hard. They worked hard for 11 months. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Diyo Sibisi netted against his former club to seriously dent their title hopes.

We thank the thousands of anonymous tipsters and our partners for the successes.”Abramjee also thanked the South African Police Service for acting on the tip-offs, which have led to many arrests and seizures.South Africa will bid to host the 2014 CSI conference. It is being held in Las Vegas, US, in 2012 and will be held in Europe in 2013.Abramjee said he is confident the country will win the 2014 bid.Fighting crimeCrime Line is a Primedia Group initiative launched in 2007 and is aimed at preventing, decreasing and ridding the country of criminal elements.It was the first programme of its kind to introduce text-message technology for whistle-blowing.Individuals in South Africa can text-message their tip-offs to 32111 for R1 (US 14 cents) any time, day or night. Crime Line also has a website that features the photographs of wanted criminals and lists numbers of who to contact with a lead.Since its inception, Crime Line has been responsible for over 1 400 arrests and R41-million (US$5.3-million) in seizures.Crime Stop is a police initiative, which operates call centres around the country aimed at receiving tip-offs of criminal activity. The local toll-free number for tipsters is 08600 10111.Both these initiatives promise anonymity for information supplied, thereby protecting the whistle-blower.Abramjee, Major-General Vinesh Moonoo and Colonel Dr Attie Lamprecht from the police service were added to the CSI’s board of directors in 2010.Lamprecht said: “We are proud of our achievements and the successful partnership we have with Crime Line.“The CSI awards mean a lot to us and we are delighted.

We are humbled and we thank the public and our partners for the support.“We also salute the production team at Primedia Broadcasting that resulted in us winning the television-audio visual category.”The production teams from Primedia’s radio stations, including Talk Radio 702, 94.7 Highveld Stereo, 567 Cape Talk and 94.5 Kfm, produced a special report of the initiative’s achievements during its anniversary earlier this year.A few months ago Crime Line ensured that newspaper photographs were published of men wanted by police for a spate of ATM bombings, and this led to arrests within days.CSI has praised a group of newspapers from the Independent Group for supporting Crime Line.Leading from the frontNot only does Abramjee promote civic participation in the fight against crime, he has also been involved in a police sting operation, leading from the front.This operation came after Abramjee uncovered a multimillion-rand school subsidy scam and was offered a bribe to keep quiet about it.The reverend who ran the two schools, and was allegedly pocketing the state subsidies, offered Abramjee R7-million ($905 000) for his silence.When Abramjee went to “collect” the first instalment of the bribe, he took police officers with him and they arrested the man on the spot.He is now facing charges of fraud and corruption.
