Advocate Dali Mpofu has been a source of entertainment for Twitter users after the court dismissed Royal AM's court case against the Premier Soccer League CEO and the National Soccer League.

In early June, Royal AM was successful in acquiring a court interdict to block the PSL playoffs from kicking off.

According to News24, Royal AM was unhappy Sekhukhune United was awarded three points as per an arbitration ruling by the PSL. This ruling subsequently made Sekhukhune United the GladAfrica Championship winners.

Royal AM felt that the ruling was unjust and that they deserved to win the GladAfrica champions and the interdict was meant to address this issue, according to Daily Sun.

Despite the court interdict, the PSL playoffs went ahead which prompted Royal AM to file another lawsuit which was dismissed by the judge on Monday. Royal AM asked the court to hold the National Soccer League as well as PSL CEO Mato Madlala in contempt of court.

Mpofu, who is also former President Jacob Zuma's legal representative, represented Royal AM in their latest bid to the Gauteng High Court. The court ruled that Royal AM's interdict had lapsed due to another judgement by a different judge and as a result, their application was without merit.

Twitter users could not help but find it amusing that Mpofu had lost yet another case in recent weeks. Mpofu was unable to save Zuma from being found in contempt of court and Twitter users had to point out his losing streak. Here are some of their reactions:


"Dali Mpofu's lack of congeniality can cost you as his client before the judges; he approaches courts like ANC/EFF branch meetings."


"I hear that Adv Dali Mpofu SC bit the dust AGAIN "
