Gunners may dump All Kasi

Publishing Date : 08 May, 2018


The fuming Extension Gunners is ready to drop Tsa Gae Clothing Label Company trading as AllKasi following reports that the latter is failing to adhere to the specifications of their contract. The club is said to be preparing to terminate their contract with the clothing company with immediate effect.

Reports reaching this publication are to the effect that the ailing Gunners are not satisfied with the way the clothing label is administrating the club- a complex scenario that has left the club battling heavy financial doldrums to this date. The Lobatse based company signed a deal with Gunners in August 2016 to run the club through a management contract. The deal was spear headed by the club’s late chairman Phenyo Gothaang after the club could not reach an understanding with one touted multimillionaire, who was at the time said to be interested in investing fortunes in the Peleng based outfit.

According to the agreement, All Kasi was to get all income the club made but later give the team society a third of those profits on annual basis. All Kasi also had access to Gunners’ account which remained in operation even prior to penning the deal. WeekendSport has gathered that Gunners management has been irked by the way the local clothing brand has been dragging their feet regarding the issue of finances, particularly at a time when the team was in dire need of money. Source further reveal that a contract penned by the two parties is different from the one prepared by lawyer, Tshiamo Rantao.  Both parties are believed to have signed a 5 year deal.

Sources allege that Tsa Gae entered into an agreement with Gunners while facing similar financial problems. The clothing company has since claimed that the failure to meet their contractual obligations with the team was because the company itself between a rock and a hard place. AlKasi, reports say, has been failing to administer itself.

However, All Kasi still has another running contract with the club as technical sponsors. The expiry dates of this contract are unknown. Efforts to reach Gunners officials proved futile as Gunners Chairman his Vice Chairman’s calls went unanswered. Ian Kebopetswe, Extension Gunners manager could not be drawn into divulging any information on the matter as he said the issue was beyond his portfolio.

Ludo Kemoeng who is managing director of All Kasi had not responded to a questionnaire sent to him by press time. He had declined to field questions via a telephone interview, instead asking for a questionnaire to be emailed. It is against this backdrop that Gunners has seen some its senior players boycotting training demanding their wages. The team however has slapped the players with suspensions pending a disciplinary hearing. Sources claim Gunners did not handle well the issue of the players as they (players) are well within their rights to demand what is due to them, and instead, Gunners should take the fight to their partners, All Kasi.
