Chinyemba takes Chiefs back to court

Former Mochudi Centre Chiefs coach, Elias Chinyemba has taken the club to Department of Labour over outstanding benefits following his dismissal from the club. The beleaguered Chiefs fired Chinyemba last month, while still smarting away from other legal disputes with former players.

Chiefs were recently reported to FIFA by another former coach, Philani Mabhena, and will hope the current matter is dealt with before getting out of hand. Chinyemba who joined Magosi in 2019 was tasked with taking the Kgatleng giants back to the elite league.

Chinyemba was left with over a year in his three year contract which was set to end in July 2021. However it was not to be as the team’s new management decided to part ways with him. “I was shocked [to hear] that I made them fail club licencing claiming I do not have coaching qualifications. For the record I have Caf B and I have coached different teams including Tafic and Sua so I am shocked to hear that but I don’t want to say much as the issue is before labour,” said Chinyemba in a telephone interview.

“I have reported them for unfair dismissal and unpaid arrears, that’s what I can tell you for now.” Mochudi Centre Chiefs on their part claim to have engaged the coach before releasing something which the coach refuted.  “We were saddened to see the coach commenting on the issue as we felt its confidential and we can only wait to go and present our case at labour,” said Olebile Sikwane, the club new Vice Chairman.

“We acted on the best interest of the team and wanted to meet BFA compliance requirements”. Mochudi Centre Chiefs are said to be owing Chinyemba over P60 000 and are yet to pay him his benefits for terminating the contract.

“I don’t want to talk about how much they owe me in the media but it is true there were months where I was not paid and sometimes half pay and now since they fired me they haven’t paid me anything and they been calling me to resolve the issue out of court. We will see how it goes,” said the former Sua coach. The case is expected to be heard this month on the 24th.
