As reported by the Siya crew in today’s Siyagobhoza, Vilakazi and Ngwenya had asked the BFA to intervene after their club, Notwane FC, failed to pay their salaries for the past three months.

According to sources, the BFA Players Status Committee has decided to release the two players from their contracts.

The Siya crew contacted the South African-based Notwane FC Chairman, Gift Mogapi, for his views on the latest developments.

“I have heard these rumours about Benedict and Manqoba being declared as free agents by the Players Status Committee, but up until now I haven’t received any communication from the committee, so it’s difficult for me to comment,” said Mogapi.

“As far as I know, this committee doesn’t have the powers to declare players as free agents. Their job is to mediate between the club and the players. But, like I said, let’s wait until I’ve got the official word from them,” added Mogapi.

Meanwhile, Mogapi told the crew that he was trying to organise a meeting with the players to try and sort out the dispute between him and them.

“I’m going over to Botswana later this week and hopefully I’ll meet the players over the weekend,” concluded Mogapi.
