Mnisi heads to court over Highlands Park sale


The sale of Highlands Park to Tim Sukazi is not going down well with everyone at the club.

Club director Sinky Mnisi, who has a 20% share, is hopping mad and confirmed that he’s heading to court to stop the sale.

Brad Kaftel owns 60%, while Larry Brookstone, like Mnisi, also enjoys a 20% stake.

FARPost reported three days ago that Sukazi is close to getting his hands on Highlands Park, despite the denials by Kaftel.

Without giving much away, Mnisi confirmed to this publication on Sunday that he’s taking the legal route to block the sale and reading between the lines, he actually knows very little about the deal, hence he’s unhappy.

Interestingly, Swallows FC chairman David Mogashoa, whose side has won promotion to the topflight, suggested that Mnisi is wasting his time heading for the courts.

“He will have difficulty stopping the sale ka (with) 20%. That’s why you won’t find me anywhere ka 20%. I would rather take my money and open a spaza shop. Ka 20% you have no say. Absolutely Fokol. You just attended meetings for tea and biskits (sic),” Mogashoa responded to a tweet by FARPost regarding the matter.

FARPost sources have confirmed that the parties involved in the sale have already submitted the deal in seeking approval from the PSL and once ratified, Sukazi is expected to relocate the club to Mpumalanga.

There are already claims that if successful, Sukazi will rename the club TS Galaxy and play out of Mbombela Stadium next season.

It remains to be seen what Sukazi would then do with his GladAfrica Championship team.

FARPost will keep you posted.
