IN what can be described as a short as sneeze marriage, Moneni Pirates have parted ways with Zimbabwean Director Nqobizitha Mlilo. The two parties are said to have parted ways last night following a meeting that took place at the George Hotel. The club Elders reportedly installed seasoned General Manager Brian Magagula as an interim leader of the club Mlilo signed a three-year contract in December last year at the same venue in an event which was graced by the club Chairman Osborne Nzima, officials and members of the national supporters committee. The decision comes after the continuous dragging of the player’s monthly salaries, amid the recent payments of the E300 match bonuses on Saturday morning following their victory over Malanti Chiefs on Friday afternoon at the Mavuso Sports Centre. Installed Mlilo has recently installed an all-female board of Directors for the black and white ensemble comprising of reputable personalities such as Gigi Reid, Nobuhle Dlamini and Lomakhosetive Tshabalala, among others. Pirates Public Relations Officer Sibusiso Nkambule confirmed the news yesterday. “We have parted ways with Mlilo and the team is currently led by Brian Magagula until further notice. We appeal for support and assistance from the entire Pirates family while we are still sorting the directorship issue,” he said. Mlilo said he cannot accept the decision until he receives an official statement from Nzima when contacted last night. He, however, stated that he did attend the night meeting on mutual consent. “I cannot say anything until I get something official from Osborne Nzima whom I signed a legal binding contract with when I joined the club. According to the CAF club licensing, the elder’s structure is not recognised in football,” he said. Pirates will on Saturday visit Tambuti in their next MTN Premier League match scheduled for the Mavuso Sports Centre.
