Golden Arrows have been cleared of any wrongdoing on gun allegations made by one of the team’s former players.

On exiting the KwaZulu-Natal club in January last year, the team’s former midfielder, Clifton Miheso, alleged that he was pressured into terminating his contract. 

It was alleged that two armed men pressured the Kenyan footballer into signing a document agreeing to terminate his contract at the office of Arrows’ Chief Executive Officer, Gordon Masondo. 

While Arrows later published a letter on the club’s official website, in which Miheso was apologising to the KZN outfit for the allegations attributed to him that he was made to sign a contract at gunpoint, the apology was later disputed by some sections of the football fraternity. With the support of the South African Football Players Union (SAFPU), Miheso turned to FIFA - seeking intervention on the matter.

However, the Siya crew has been informed that Arrows and their CEO have since been cleared of any wrongdoing on the matter.  

Contacted for comment, Arrows’ Masondo confirmed that the KZN club has received correspondence from FIFA clearing them of wrongdoing.

“The verdict has come out to say that there was no wrongdoing from Arrows. We have been cleared from the accusations. It was them (Miheso and his camp) who decided to go to FIFA where the decision has now been made. It’s unfortunate that in this world there are people who find others guilty way before a decision on a case is taken.

“From the club’s side, we are happy and life goes on. The letter from FIFA states that they can appeal in no later than 10 days. We won’t say anything, they can do as they wish – it’s up to them. My football journey has been the most painful one. People have their own opinions and that’s why you can’t expect everyone to be on your side on things like the one that happened to me. This whole thing damaged my reputation. I am a husband, and when things like that were mentioned about me, my wife might have had her questions even though she trusts me. Even though she supports me, the fact is she wasn’t there (where the alleged incident allegedly took place), like everyone else. My kids were asking me every day, ‘Daddy, did you do this?’ The whole thing turned to be a joke in the football fraternity. People would say, ‘Be careful, he might pull out a gun.’ I would like to apologise to my church because they were as confused as everyone else who trusts and respects me. I apologise to them for the statements that came out about me. I forgive everyone but it’s something I will never forget. I thank the chairlady (Mato Madlala) and my family as they stood by me. The chairlady repeatedly said it that ‘I don’t believe he is that kind of a person.’ I thank her from the bottom of my heart,” said Masondo.

SAFPU has also commented on the matter, as detailed in edition 1059 of Soccer Laduma.

You can deny, but i believe there is no one who can accused you. Fifa can take your side but God will punish you before the end of this year you better apologise to the guy.
