TTM accused of outstanding debt

Premiership

Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila have come under the spotlight once again, this time for not honouring their word relating to players’ settlements.

TTM, who have bought over the premiership status of Bidvest Wits, showed their intentions of competing in the PSL next season after signing Oupa Manyisa and Joseph Molongoane.

The capture of the former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs midfielders last week has now raised question marks over their non-payment of Lesotho international Motlomolo Mkhwanazi and Lerato Mofokeng.

Tshakhuma had initially made an undertaking to settle the outstanding monies owed to both Mofokeng and Mkhwanazi in June but have not delivered for the past two months.

According to the South African Football Players Union deputy general secretary Calvin Motloung, the club has now been taken to the PSL DRC.

“They made a promise to pay the outstanding payments but nothing has been done for the past two months. We have also since referred the case to DRC,” Motloung tells KickOff.com.

TTM CEO Sello Chokoe has since insisted they have settled all their outstanding debt but refused to engage further on the matter.

“We made all the payments,” said Chokoe, before abruptly hanging up the phone.
