Former Mochudi Centre Chiefs spokesperson, Jabu Mookodi has said he is worried that the perpetual financial disputes between the club and its former employees are creating a bad name for the brand.

Mookodi resigned from his position this week citing unpaid dues as the reason behind his shock departure from the club. Mookodi told Mmegi Sport yesterday that he is owed in the range of P20,000 and has not been given a satisfactory response from the management about the issue. “Since I joined the club in September last year, I have not been getting my salary and I have been patient because I knew the club’s financial situation at the time.

But right now the club has been doing well in terms of gate takings since it moved to its home ground, so there is no reason for not paying me what I am entitled to [be paid],” Mookodi said. Mookodi also said since the club is moving away from being run as a society, it has to show by avoiding such recurring financial disputes. “We have to protect this badge and if the club continues to soil its name through such financial disputes, it will work against the brand in the future,” he said. Mookodi said he will continue to engage the club management on the issue. He also said for now he is not thinking of taking the matter to the courts. “I do not think the matter will go that far.
