“The Coach has been notified of the decision to terminate his contract after the failure to meet our mandate of getting automatic promotion back into the Premier Division.” Sokhela says.

“We have thanked him for his contribution and hard work into the first team as well his input towards our development structures. We wish him well with his future plans,” Sokhela  adds.
