Chiliboy is for the third time in his career in trouble for testing positive for a banned substance.

The 32-year-old allegedly tested positive for a prohibited substance in January when the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (Saids) executed random drug tests at Kings Park. His A-sample urine tested positive, and he has since exercised the right to have his B sample tested.

On Wednesday, Saids released a statement to confirm that the B-sample had also returned a positive finding. 

In an interview with E-NEWS a few weeks ago Ralepelle said that he did not knowingly used the drug called Zeranol.

According to a report from a previous case against a USA woman athlete this drug is found in contaminated red meat in her case.

According to Ralepelle his law firm ENS are looking into this case as well.

Ralepelle was tested the first time positive for a band substance in 2010 when he was with the Springboks but it was then found that it was administrated by the Springbok team doctor.

In 2014 he received a 2 year ban for using another banned substance which Ralepelle still denies any wrong doing.

He claims that all three allegations was false, this include the one when he received a ban in 2014. According to him things happen in the case which he cannot disclosed.

He suggested that someone is benefiting from all off these allegations against him but did not say what he means by that.

He could not say if he was targeted by someone but did say there is a pattern in all three cases which him and his law firm is looking at.

Ralepelle now has the option of accepting the result and offering a guilty plea, where after a reasoned decision will be issued explaining the doping sanction.

He may also submit a plea for consideration of a reduced sanction by providing mitigating circumstances. Should he opt to contest the sample result, a hearing of an independent tribunal panel will be convened to adjudicate over the proceeding and hand down a decision.’

Time will tell what will come out at the end of all of this.
