Former Highlanders striker Rodreck Mutuma has donated all the money that he was owed in signing on fees and bonuses back to the Bulawayo club. Mutuma has moved to Yadah FC where he will reportedly earn $1000/month after having spent just over half a year at Highlanders.
Modern Ngwenya, the acting Highlanders chairperson said:
Unfortunately his salary, according to him, could not sustain him here and his family in Harare, so we had to make a mutually beneficial decision which benefits the club and Mutuma. Remember he had four months remaining on his contract, so it meant he was going to walk out of the club for free without us getting anything. Admittedly we owed him some signing on fees, but he agreed to cancel that and it means we don’t owe Mutuma anything. Yadah gave us something. He agreed to write off what the club owed him in signing on fees and winning bonuses if any that he was owed.
We thank him for being disciplined and for applying himself very well to the club. We did not have any disciplinary issues with him and the coaches were happy with him.
