It’s also fake and unfounded that we will be announcing or be involved in any media briefing regarding the sale. Platinum Stars is not involved in any form of media briefing to announce anything.

We are intending to dispose of the club in future but the normal process will be followed and interested parties will be called to make proposals. So far our focus is on doing well in the league.”
He added: “We want to reassure our supporters that we have our eyes on the ball. We are steadfast in ensuring that we achieve the objectives we set for ourselves at the beginning of the season. We urge our supporters to continue rallying behind the team.”
Dikwena are currently sitting bottom of the Absa Premiership after four games.
