Solly Makganoto

It came as no shock for Platinum Stars when arbitrator William Mokhari delivered his verdict on the Ajax Cape Town/Tendai Ndoro matter which found the team guilty and docked them points from matches against Platinum Stars, Polokwane City, and Supersport United.

Right after the announcement, Dikwena tweeted “Basheshe ba hleka”,  which in direct translation means (they were quick to laugh).


Dikwena were already hard on training before the announcement, preparing for the NFD play-off fixture against Black Leopards scheduled today (Wednesday) in Thohoyandou.


Upon hearing the news, Dikwena quickly boarded a bus to Venda.




Ajax Cape Town had been scheduled to go up against Black Leopards on Wednesday in their first promotion/relegation match, however, with the verdict not going their way, the had to fly back to the mother city.

Ajax, though, can still appeal the ruling through the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
