Chiefs, players on the same page


Mochudi Centre Chiefs chairperson, Raymond Tsheko has said they are at a stage where they have mutual understanding with players regarding the club’s financial status.

The two parties have had several fallouts this season with the players threatening to boycott some games as a result of unpaid salaries. 

Magosi, once a formidable side in the league, has been struggling financially for over two years.

“What is important is to engage and create a mutual understanding. We are at that stage now,” he said.

Tsheko said the focus is to avoid relegation as well as push all the way they can in the Orange FA Cup. “A giant must now fall. We will try and take each game as it comes,” he said.

Despite their challenges, Chiefs beat the odds and overcame Gilport Lions last Sunday to advance to the next stage of the FA Cup. They have been drawn against another Debswana First Division side, Jwaneng Fighters in the Last 16.  

Tsheko denied reports that Chiefs’ warring factions were preparing to settle out of court. The two groups have been fighting for the control of the club for over two years.  Sources close to the development had indicated that the two factions are considering settling out of court and head for reconciliation.

“Chances are that the two groups may agree to drop the case and settle outside. There have not been any formal discussions yet, but indications are that the two may settle out of court,” the source said.

However, Tsheko said nothing official has been discussed that far. “No party has initiated that. The case is still at the High Court and has been postponed to June 5,” he said.

The current executive committee accusing the other faction led by Ramocha Tsieng of contempt of court filed the case.
