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.

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.
