Wicknell Chivayo is GOING BROKE!!! – Harare Businessman Wicknell Chivayo has not paid Warriors coach, Kalisto Pasuwa for the past five months amid reports that his coffers are now running dry.
The Warriors coach is on a $7 000 per month contract with Zifa, but NewsDay Sport has learnt that Pasuwa has not received his pay for the past five months, raising fears over his future with the national team.“He has not been paid for the past five months. Things have not been good for him even though he is soldiering on. You wonder whether they are trying to frustrate him,” an informed source said this week.
In April, Chivayo threatened to withdraw his sponsorship of the national team coach’s salary following a barrage of attacks in the media over his failure to pay Pasuwa on time.
The businessman later announced he would continue to pay the coach and support Zifa financially as per his initial promise. Chivayo paid Pasuwa the outstanding $21 000 in cash at the time. However, he has not been paying the coach in the past five months. When contacted for comment yesterday, Chivayo promised to return the call, but did not do so.
Chivayo has been offering assistance to the Warriors, but he has failed to make good on most of his pledges. Chivayo holds several contracts with the Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC), but the company has tightened screws on payments.
ZETDC paid Chivayo millions last year, but he is yet to complete the projects.
