Former Baberwa boss confirm acquisition of ABC Motsepe status


Joe Seanego has confirmed to FARPost that he has concluded a deal to buy the ABC Motsepe League status of Maholosiane FC, a few months after selling Baberwa’s status to Wits University FC.

The former Baberwa FC boss Seanego and Maholosiane FC had agreed on the sale last month with the club now renamed Gomora United.

Maholosiane FC had secured their spot in the Gauteng ABC Motsepe League after finishing third in the Gauteng SAB League Provincial play-offs held at TUKS Stadium in November/December 2020.

“Yes, I have sold Baberwa to Wits and bought the [ABC Motsepe League] status of Maholosiane. It happened last month,” Seanego told FARPost.

However, Seanego didn’t reveal how much he paid to acquire the Motsepe League status of the newly promoted Maholosiane.

In the 2019/20 season, Maholosiane finished top of the West Rand SAB League stream in the Gauteng region to qualify to play in the Provincial play-offs.

It is worth noting that Seanego was previously linked with a move to buy the GladAfrica Championship status of Royal AM (formerly known as Real Kings) and TS Galaxy (now competing in the DStv Premiership.

But following his failure to buy his way in the second-tier league, Seango will remain in the Motsepe League and attempt to gain promotion the traditional way.

The Gomora United boss also revealed that ex-Orlando Pirates trio Khethokwakhe Masuku, Sifiso Myeni, and Rooi Mahamutsa along with former Bafana Bafana international Lerato Chabangu and Lucky Khune will be joining the Alexandra-based outfit.

The new ABC Motsepe League season is set to start in March as the South African Football Association (Safa) has lifted the suspension of amateur football that was imposed last month.

“Amateur Leagues to resume beginning of March 2021. The Association would like to appeal to Clubs, Safa Regions, and Safa Provincial Structures to adhere to the Safa Covid-19 Health and Safety Directive at all times to mitigate the risk of spreading the virus,” said Safa in a statement.
