Alleged Gun Incident Investigated

As reported in issue 1007 of the Soccer Laduma newspaper, the South African Football Players’ Union (SAFPU) are investigating an incident involving Golden Arrows and the club’s former player, Clifton Miheso.

Prior to parting ways with Arrows, it was reported in the media that a gun was allegedly used to force Miheso to terminate his contract with Arrows.

Although Abafana Bes’thende posted a hand-written letter from Miheso to chairperson Mato Madlala on the club's official website, indicating that he was disappointed with the news claiming that he was forced to sign the termination letter, SAFPU’s general-secretary, Thulaganyo Gaoshubelwe, says the matter is being investigated further.

“I’m right on top on this case. It’s an international matter. I can tell you that it’s at a very advanced stage. I’ve written a few letters on the matter and am hoping to get a reply because you don’t really want to go out there and just say, ‘Thanks, you don’t really understand.’ Somebody cannot wake up to say that something was pointed at him if it didn’t happen. There’s no smoke without fire. 

“Most of all, our concern is about the player’s contract. It talks to the heart of players’ rights, especially workers in this country. Regardless of whether a gun was allegedly pointed or the player was abused, you cannot have this type of situation, whereby someone is forced to terminate his own contract.

“This becomes very simple. If Miheso lied, then the law must take its course because when you look at it, he’s then allegedly defamed Arrows and put their club name into disrepute. But if there’s absolutely nothing, you’re not going to let go. You’re going to deal with it. That’s become my argument,” said Gaoshubelwe.
