Masikhwa: What I bring to TTM


Newly appointed Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila CEO Tenda Masikhwa has revealed what he plans to bring to the DStv Premiership club.

The former SAFA head of referees recently replaced Sello Chokoe, who was suspended by the club over allegations of fraud.

"What I want to do is to reinforce the team with new ideas as to what we need to do going forward," Masikhwa tells

"I'm also looking forward to working with the management team that is here. We will be doing everything together. I don't have all the solutions. Everybody that is in the team will be part of the decision-making so that we all should own up to whatever will be happening.

"As a general manager/CEO, I think everything that has to do with the team has to come to me. That's why I'm saying we will all be part of the decision-making.

"What is a bit surprising is that you know there are some people that write information that is incorrect you know, for example in some of the newspapers it was indicated that there are some players that are on strike, which was totally incorrect.

"Because one of the players which was said to be on strike was Edgar Manaka and we were with him in Durban. And he has never been away from training. And with Lerato Lamola, he is here with us as we speak [laughs]."

Masikhwa explains how he landed the big position at Vhadau Vha Damani.

"I think they had seen that I have what it takes, that's why maybe they decided to come for me. So I'm also looking forward to it, it's a new challenge. I've been in all the other footballing roles, so ya this is a new challenge. They were searching for me, and I also put in my CV."

Asked if Joel Masutha's job is still safe after their recent poor run of results, Masikhwa says: "Eh, there is nothing that makes it not to be safe.

"The coach has been working with these players. The team is playing well, it's just that we are not converting our chances. But that happens in all the teams. There are times where you find that they need that little bit of luck.

"So I think we will be turning the corner very soon. Yes, it is a concern that we are not converting our chances but playing-wise the players are giving their all. They just need our support as management."
