Sweswe Finally Explains Chiefs Exit

When the news broke that then-Kaizer Chiefs defender, Thomas Sweswe, would be released by the club at the end of the 2011/12 season, some quarters of the Amakhosi faithful were surprised. 

The Zimbawean international had been a rock in the heart of defence during his three years at Chiefs, and very few anticipated his departure. At the time, very little was said about the real reasons Chiefs decided to let him go, although some speculated that match-fixing allegations for the Zimbabwe national team might have played a part. 

Furthermore, the central defender then went on to join Wits - a club where he spent the last two seasons. Sweswe is now a free agent having been released from his contract by the Clever Boys, and is on the look-out for a new PSL club for next season.

Nonetheless, in edition 874 of Soccer Laduma, the player has finally revealed why his Chiefs days came to an end somewhat prematurely perhaps. 

He said, "The whole situation was a mess. I was not allowed to say or discuss anything with anyone...As for Chiefs, I gave them three solid years and to be released just like that, my brother...it was hell. I was at home at Chiefs and the supporters were happy with me...It made me angry at first (when I was released)..." 

To find out the full and revealing details of why Chiefs let Sweswe go, get your copy of this week's paper (Edition 874) which is in stores and on sale now. In his full interview with Malusi Mkhize, Sweswe reveals all!
