Kaizer Chiefs are once again facing travel problems as a result of the Covid-19 strain on travel regulations. The team is meant to travel to Morocco to face Wydad Casablanca for another CAF group C fixture in less than 12 hours.
According to a media statement released by the team, several of its members are yet to receive their travel visas despite the fact that they had applied for them well in advance, they also stuck to all necessary guidelines.
"Kaizer Chiefs made all the necessary arrangements to travel including booking flights, securing accommodation, submission of visa applications and everything that is required for the trip," read a statement published on the official Kaizer Chiefs website.
Wydad has however requested that the South African team gain special permission from the Ministry of Health of the North African country to enter but is yet to receive a response. This may be because South Africa is currently a high-risk country.
Meanwhile, Chiefs fans have had this to say:
"Why do Africans need VISAS to travel to an African countries?"
"It's not nonsense. We allow people from many countries to come here without visas, and there are also countries we can travel to without visas"
"They are already having cold feet manene. Playing in Africa is not for everyone."
"I think it's because of the South African covid variant, Hope things will get better."
