…The ex-Wanderers captain rejects Botswana pay cut

FORMER Be Forward Wanderers captain, Lawrence Majawa—the last man to skipper the Nomads to the TNM Super League glory in 2006—has quit Botswana’s BTC Premiership champions, Township Rollers.

Majawa, who signed for Rollers in 2008 to link up with Rahman Gumbo—his former Zimbabwean coach at Wanderers—quit the Gaborone giants after declining a pay-cut, Mmegi newspaper reported on Friday.


Majawa won five league titles, Mascom Top 8 and two Kabelano Charity Cup medals to establish himself as a legend for Rollers.

Rollers’ President, Jagdish Shah, told the newspaper that they could not meet the 37-year-old anchorman’s wage demands with the player unwilling to take a pay cut.

“Yeah, we have been in talks with him since last week. We asked him if we could carry on with the agreement we had or take a pay cut. We could not offer him more than what we paid him.


“Look, he is ageing. We cannot afford to pay him what we paid three or four years ago. I understand that it is difficult for anyone to take a pay cut,” he is quoted saying.

Jagdish further confirmed that Majawa declined a nonplaying role in the team as he told the club that he wants to continue playing.

The Malawian, who has two caps, is rumoured to be on the radar of newly- promoted Sharps Shooting Stars in Botswana.
