Botswana Premier League (BPL) giants Mochudi Centre Chiefs are set to appear before the Botswana Football Association (BFA) over former coach Bongani Mafu’s debt.
The Zimbabwean tactician is reportedly owed in the region of P200,000 and he reported the matter to his country’s mother body, the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA).
ZIFA then took the matter to the BFA, who are expected to call Chiefs to hear the matter.
Clifford Mogomotsi, the Chiefs team manager, stated that the club is aware that they have been reported to ZIFA.
“Mafu was supposed to report us to ZIFA, which he did. ZIFA has since written to the BFA as per the norm," Mogomotsi was quoted by Mmegi as saying.
"We are waiting to be called by the BFA, but our position remains clear," he said.
"We had agreed with Mafu that we would settle the debt. We are sticking to our agreement that we would pay him, we have never refused."
Mafu, who served as Zimbabwe assistant coach during the 2017 COSAFA Cup, was in charge of Chiefs during the 2016/17 campaign.
