Magosi in Muti debt

Dealing in muti to find success on the football pitch has come back to haunt Kgatleng BTC Premiership outfit Mochudi Center Chiefs. This week Magosi hit yet another low when the Francistown High Court instructed debt collectors to seize the club’s property over an outstanding debt in favour of a local sangoma. The intriguing and long running case saw the court ordering garnishee against the club, which means the complainant will be paid in instalments. The already debt riddled Magosi are expected to cough up P87, 000 plus costs of the suit by Francistown High Court Judge, Bengbame Sechele.
