According to Bulawayo 24, an unnamed Mzansi sheriff officer said the former Kaizer Chiefs star had not paid his bond.

The officer said:

"The information is that the player has not been paying monthly instalments for the house, prompting the finance service provider to put the house on auction in an attempt to recoup the R1.7 million loan."

Briefly News reporter Privie Kandi spoke to an award-winning sports journalist who said that financial instability among athletes is usually due to poor financial planning. She said:

"Financial instability among professional athletes is usually caused by poor financial planning, lack of financial education, and their fancy lifestyles.
"They can be better supported through financial literacy programs, professional financial advisors, and post-career planning resources."
