Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) CEO Sello Chokoe has opened up about the recent allegations of unpaid salaries of players.
It was reported by FARPost on 27 September that there were outstanding salary issues as Bidvest Wits didn’t pay some of its players their full salaries for September after the club sold their top-flight status to TTM.
TTM CEO Chokoe has set the record straight. “Look there was an agreement to say Bidvest Wits will pay the salaries of the players until end of September, so now we are going to be responsible in October to pay all the players that belong to Wits, belong to us,” he said.
Amid allegations of unpaid salaries, Chokoe has acknowledged that some of the players were indeed owed salaries for the month of September.
“There was a miscommunication with [Thabang] Monare and [Sifiso] Hlanti but it was actually sorted, they got their money three days after we realised that they didn’t get their salary.
“So there’s no Wits player who is owed money by Bidvest or TTM. From this month we are liable to pay players, not only those from Wits but also the new players, so it was just a miscommunication and it was fixed immediately within 24 hours after it was realised. Some of us we saw it in the media,” concluded Chokoe.
