The debt includes wages and signing-on fees. Reports are that there was an agreement and a payment plan between the club and the Zimbabwean midfielder to settle the outstanding amount that exceeds P60,000. In response to Mmegi Sport's enquiry on the matter, Gunners’ secretary-general, Benson Mere said the club is yet to be alerted on the matter by the local football authority.

“We cannot comment on the issue that involves Machazani because we have not received a correspondence from the BFA (Botswana Football Association) or BFL (Botswana Football League). So we cannot comment on that,” Mere said. BFA chief executive officer, Mfolo Mfolo told Mmegi Sport that he would have to verify with the association records before he can comment on the matter. “I am not privy to that. (I) would have to check our records first.
