Mochudi Centre Chiefs have attained a runner-up position in all the major competitions this season. That has however not stopped them from ringing in changes at the club.
Although it is not yet clear what kind of changes will be there next season it looks like even the committee that has been running the league may not be there.
On Tuesday, the committee led by Chiefs Chairman, Ernest Molome, called the media to set the record straight on what has been going on at the club. This followed rumours that Chiefs had fired their coach and replaced him with their former coach, Mike Sithole, something Molome dismissed as untrue..
He said they have had not terminated their contract with Mundo, and therefore could not speak of any changes in the technical side of things.
The committee has revealed that despite all the allegations of money squandering and all other accusations leveled against them, they will be available for re-elections. They however insisted they did not plan to campaign for elections.
Clifford Mogomotsi who is probably the longest serving Chiefs mouthpiece has also vowed to continue supporting the team whatever the members’ decision in two weeks time.
Speaking of the achievements so far, Mogomotsi revealed that there was have a huge chunk of land in Mochudi where they will in a few years time develop a home of Chiefs similar to what is at the likes of Kaizer Chiefs’ Naturena.
It is, however, understood that there were plans to overhaul the Chiefs set-up and privatize the team. Already there are plans to have a team’s office and a Chief Executive Officer as well as assistants in the office.
Molome also explained that they already have a roadmap on where they want to take the team hence the reason they are available to continue serving.
One of the sensitive issues before the team is that rumour that the chairman is owed a lot of money. Molome however, would not tell Voice Sport how much Chiefs owed him.
“We have had money from various people, supporters included. We have borrowed money from people, some we paid with certain commissions while others we just returned without any interest. I personally have contributed to Chiefs in terms of donations and lending them. This was done in good faith without the claiming factor in mind,” said Molome, adding that, “I have been a supporter of Chiefs for more than 20 years before becoming a chairman, so I love the team.”
Molome also explained that despite Pontsho Moloi and Noah Maposa not able to join them for the remainder of the season they will be there next season. The two players were on loan to Bay United in South Africa where their season ended in May.
