Mayhem As Baroka Appeal Is Postponed

The case involving Baroka goalkeeper, Veli Mothwa, who allegedly signed two contracts, one with Polokwane City around the beginning of the season after helping Bakgaga capture the 2013 Safa Second Division National Play-Offs, will be heard on Wednesday.

Last Friday, Safa lawyers were expected to rule on an appeal brought by Baroka but the case was postponed amidst acrimony when a desperate Amarover representative tried to enter the chamber, which infuriated Baroka owner Khurishi Mphahlele. 

“We couldn’t sit down for the appeal,” he told Soccer-Laduma.

“First we had to fight with the guy from Rovers who wanted to sit with us. We spent about twenty minutes arguing before somebody made a judgment for him to get out. This has nothing to do with them.

“City wanted Safa to dismiss our appeal. The club said that we weren’t compliant, didn’t pay on time, and didn’t do this on time but from our side everything was in order.

"They then asked for a postponement as they themselves were not ready, there was no transcription. But Baroka was ready to tackle that argument with or without a transcription.”

Mothwa has already had a complaint by relegated Roses United as well as a Blackburn Rovers’ protest dismissed by a DC but last November another hearing found that the contract between City and him was in fact valid. 

The league was ordered to impose disciplinary charges against the 23-year-old for misconduct in terms of rule 37.162.

But Mphahlele is confident that he’ll win this appeal as well.

“Mothwa was ‘forced under certain circumstances’ to sign a contract with City. Our boy is properly registered, Raymond Hack confirmed this. There’s no fraud involved so we’ll win the case,” he concluded.
