Wits sold? Board member speaks up


Bidvest Wits have responded to reports going around that the club has been sold.

Confirming news this website reported last month, businessman Masala Mulaudzi announced on Phalaphala FM on Friday that he has sold Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila with the intention to buy a team in the Absa Premiership next season.

However, the Limpopo-born club owner has not revealed the name of the club he is interested in buying even though the media have set the direction towards Braamfontein.

Wits board member George Mogotsi says it is all news to him that The Students will relocate to Limpopo next season.

Mogotsi sounded surprised when asked about the possibility of the Clever Boys being sold next season.

"I am surprised. I read about everything said in the media. I don't know anything," Mogotsi tells KickOff.com.

"You are the first publication to call and ask me. I am just as surprised as everybody. Everyone including staff and players are still at home and nothing has been communicated that the club is being sold."

Durban-based businesswoman Shawn Mkhize is also reportedly chasing the status of a PSL team for next season and has been linked with both Wits and Bloemfontein Celtic.
