Word reaching the Siya crew is that former SA Under-17 coach, Simon Ngomane, is back in South Africa as he awaits for Botswana outfit Notwane FC to sort out their issues before he can go back to join them.
Earlier last month, the Siya crew broke the news that Ngomane had joined Notwane, however, it has since emerged that Ngomane went to Botswana and only held a couple of training sessions with the team, but has not signed a contract just yet.

“When I got there, the team had issues that needed some urgent attention, so they asked me to help out in the meantime and I stayed there for two games. I’m now waiting for them to give me the all-clear regarding their issues before we can conclude negotiations,” Ngomane told the Siya crew.
Meanwhile, former Orlando Pirates midfielder Benedict 'Tso' Vilakazi and ex-Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Manqoba Ngwenya, face an uncertain future at Notwane and are reportedly keen to quit the club and return to SA.
Word is that the SA duo have not been paid their salaries for the past three months.
According to sources, Vilakazi and Ngwenya have asked the Botswana Football Association to intervene, but the Association is still waiting for the club’s new owner, Gift Mogapi, who has a business in Cape Town, to return from South Africa.
The sources further revealed that both Vilakazi and Ngwenya refused to play last weekend and are currently on strike at the club.
Attempts by the Siya crew to get comments from the SA duo proved fruitless as their phones went straight to voicemail.
