CAPS United players yesterday besieged club vice president Nhamo Tutisani’s offices protesting over unpaid salaries for the past two months.
Apart from being owed salaries for April and May, it emerged that the players are also owed a part of the March salary. And to air their grievances, the players stormed Tutisani’s offices with some demanding clearances if they are not paid their dues.
New signing Innocent Mucheneka is among those who were daring when Tutisani tried to threaten the players by freezing them out.
One of the players who spoke to H-Metro on condition of anonymity said they tried to have the issue solved in a proper channel but to no avail.
“We tried to have this issues solved amicably, we tried to engage the executive through the team manager but nothing materialized.
“The team owe us for the past two months and part of the March salary because they were paying a certain percent while our sponsors were paying the remainder. So we felt it’s now too much and decided to come here and show them that we are not happy.
“We are prepared even to lose contracts, as long as they give us clearances, instead of engaging, he was shouting and tried to threaten us,” said one of the players.
H-Metro heard the players targeted Tutisani’s offices after it emerged that he diverted money that was in the club’s coffers to personal use and failed to avail it for salaries.
Tutisani was not available for comment.
