Silver Strikers honour Khuda Muyaba’s cut
Silver Strikers have honoured payment of a five per cent cut to their former hitman, Khuda Muyaba, from the K15 million that South Africa Premier Soccer League side Polokwane City paid to sign him in February this year.
The Central Bankers’ Chief Executive Officer, Thokozani Chimbali, said the club had deposited about K700,000 into Muyaba’s account some three days ago.
Chimbali said he had spoken to the former Moyale striker to explain reasons for the delayed remittance of the cut.
“Ít took us this long to remit Khuda’s cut because we were pre-occupied with our transition to a limited company. The contract he signed stipulated that he would pocket a five per cent cut from proceeds of any transfer deal.
“We have therefore fulfilled our side of the contract by depositing the money into his bank account. It is his money and we just had to follow the agreement he had with us,” he said.
Muyaba acknowledged receiving the money and expressed gratitude to the 2019 Airtel Top 8 Cup champions.
“I am very thankful to my former team for living up to our agreement. It is not always that you see Malawian clubs fulfilling what they agreed with their own players when it comes to such transfers.
“It is pleasing that the contract I assigned with Silver has lived up to my expectations. This will encourage local players to sign for this club as they will have an assurance that they will receive their cut in any international transfer deal,” Muyaba said.
Muyaba joined former Be Forward Wanderers defender Denis Chembezi at the struggling Polokwane.
Last year, Muyaba scored the lone goal that helped Silver to beat Karonga United in the Airtel Top 8 final.
