The battle for the Mochudi Centre Chiefs brand has taken a new turn as the matter has now reached the courts of law.

The club is currently run under two parallel management committees that are now in a legal battle to be declared the legitimate office bearers. The legal tussle is reportedly centred around the transformation of the club from a society to a company, Mochudi Centre Chiefs (Pty) Ltd.

Although the club chairperson, Victor Kobe who heads the executive committee on the society side, could not go much into detail, he did confirm that the matter will now be heard before the courts. The society has reportedly filed the matter with the Gaborone High Court with Mochudi Centre Chiefs Sporting Club as the applicant. Mochudi Centre Chiefs (Pty) Ltd has been cited as the first respondent while Ramocha Tsieng, Molefi Sexton Kowa, Edwin Luxury Mothulatshipi (former chairperson) and the Companies and Intellectual Property Authority as the second, third, fourth and fifth respondents respectively.
