Law firm sues Hlongwane over unpaid fees

Maganga and Partners Legal Practitioners which represented the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) against ex-coaches Tom Sainfeit and Jose Valinhos Geoghini, is suing Minister of Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture Makhosini Hlongwane over unpaid legal fees to the tune of $17 800. 

Hlongwane is understood to be the one who instructed the law firm to defend ZIFA. He has been cited as a defendant in his official capacity.  Part of the summouns by Maganga and Partners reads:

Early in October 2015, the defendant, Honourable Makhosini Hlongwane, instructed plaintiff (duly represented by its senior partner Raphael Maganga) to mount appeals to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland in matters of Tom Sanfeit versus ZIFA and Jose Valinhos Geoghini versus ZIFA.
