95 people have contributed $400 000 towards Highlanders’ $862 868 legacy debt, the Chronicle reports. This was after Highlanders South Africa chapter chairman Nodumo Nyathi embarked on a debt clearance initiative in May code-named Highlanders FC Debt Clearance Campaign and he has updated fellow Highlander’s fans that his efforts are bearing fruit.
In updating his fellow iBosso fans, Nyathi said:
Good morning MaBosso amahle. In May we had 37 people making deposits into the FNB account and 11 contributing to the online Thundafund. In June, 26 made deposits into the FNB account, 17 into Thundafund and four into BancABC Zimbabwe.
So in May and June about 95 people played a part in Highlanders FC Debt Clearance Campaign. Almost half of Bosso’s debt has been cleared by these 95 action oriented individuals. I Just imagine how much we could have done if you also played a part. United we will clear this debt.
Nyathi is reportedly confident the debt will be cleared by the end of this month if donations match the last month’s donations.
