'Bucs play not fair' - Club leaves widow in limbo
Feb 4, 2013 | NGWAKO MALATJI | 5 Comments THE widow of former Orlando Pirates head of security Ali Hlongwane is accusing the PSL defending champions of not playing a fair game with her.
inShare.0 SHOCKED: Priscilla Hlongwane.
DECEASED: Ali Hlongwane worked for Pirates
Hlongwane died of sugar diabetes at the age of 59 in February last year and was interred at Lenasia cemetery, south of Jozi.

After his funeral, Ali's wife Priscilla Hlongwane went to the club's headquarters in Parktown, Jozi to claim his pension fund.

But to her shock and chagrin, she was told that though Hlongwane worked for the club for 10 years, he was not permanent and that the club did not register him with their pension scheme.

In an exclusive interview with Sunday World on Thursday, Priscilla - who intermittently broke down while relating the matter - says the club gave her R10000 to bury her husband because she did not have sufficient funds to do so.

She says when she got to Parktown she was referred to financial manager Darryl Joselowsky, who told her Hlongwane was not a permanent employee of the club.

"I asked him how it was possible that they could have someone in their employ for 10 years without registering them with their pension scheme and he told me my husband also worked for Bafana Bafana," she says.

She says she sent Joselowsky an SMS the following day asking for her husband's IRP5 forms.

Joselowsky replied: "As mentioned to you when we met, as Ali was doing security work for both Orlando Pirates and Safa at one stage, he was not a permanent employee at Orlando Pirates.

"Thus no IRP5 was issued.

"He was also earning below the threshold for any tax to be deducted. Pls call if you need any further information or explanation."

Priscilla says she learnt afterwards that her husband was earning a shocking R2500 a month.

"After devoting his life to Pirates, is this how he is thanked?" she asks.

Priscilla says she has been trying to speak to club chairman Irvin Khoza but Joselowsky is obstructing her.

"My husband's two kids from a previous relationship now hate me because they think I got the money and misused it.

"My husband died in February and I'm supposed to erect a tombstone for him this month but I don't have a cent.

"I also go to bed on an empty stomach sometimes," she says.

Priscilla says her husband's car, which she has been using to run her small takeaway business, is being stripped and sold by the mechanic to defray expenses as she does not have money to pay him.

Khoza says: "Mr Hlongwane was not employed permanently but we felt morally obligated to contribute towards his funeral."

and this was touted to be a tight one. I had a thought this morning it will be 4-0 with naija winning. and i suppressed it, i thought i was bn overconfident now that looks like i was wrong we may score more and maybe set a record for the most goals scored in a semi-final.

It is 3-0 to the Superb Eagles from Nigeria. Mali must be listening to fighting words right now. We need to cool the game down and run at them on counter attack. Slyman

Sometimes it is really necessary to simply shut up when you don't have anything to say... some of you guys are bullies in this forum... I bet this is the only place you get to have a voice, otherwise you are a sorry miserable lifeless - unidentifiable soul... who gets to call himself Ramos because you can't be yourself... Many people care if the Nigerian squad has not changed...

Mali came back from 4 goals down against angola in the last afcon to level the score line in 11minutes to play if im not mistaken, so dnt be overexcitted nigerians its still early but i want to see nigerians in the finals, how, where, when, i dont care i only want to see them in the finals not these Malians who masturbated on us last week.

It is 4-1 now. Eagles should avoid being sloppy. We should not allow them score a second. If that happens they will be looking for an equaliser. Slyman

Some measure of complacent play coming from Nigeria. Eagles, focus,focus and more focus. Its not over until it's over.

Wow! Keshi sounding very modest in the after match press talk.

Hey, you know what? Keshi has made me eat my big words. Remember how I wrote that Keshi's teams that he's coached severally hardly go beyond one goal? Breaking news to a sucker like me. Keshi's Nigeria Eagles has scored 4 goooaaallllsssss.

But here I go again still not believing him. Know what? I do not yet think the Eagles are super. They've got it in them to be, yes. Keshi has never won the African Nations Cup. I aim to recognize him after Sunday Feb. 10. Up great coach to be.

I pray Keshi wins this cup and I take all I ever said back, he obviously knows he is just starting to build a team and let NFF give him the time to do that. Win or lose in the finals.
