Mos­ito the latest to leave Downs

Mamelodi Sun­downs spokesper­son Kabelo Mos­ito has quit the club.

City Press can re­veal that Mos­ito is the latest to leave the Chloorkop side, which has been hit by a wave of staff res­ig­na­tions.

Mos­ito, who was the club’s media li­ai­son of­fi­cer and spokesper­son, left his job on Fri­day.

His last as­sign­ment was the club’s fan day ac­ti­va­tion at the Tsh­wane Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy Soshanguve cam­pus on Fri­day.

The 40-year-old Mos­ito fol­lows in the foot­steps of the club’s head of com­mu­ni­ca­tions Joe Latak­gomo; de­vel­op­ment coach Dan Male­sela; head of se­cu­rity Stephanie Rheeder; events co­or­di­na­tor Dennis Madondo; and for­mer fi­nan­cial as­sis­tant Lebo Mashao.

Mean­while, team masseur Sizwe Gqogqo is un­der­go­ing a dis­ci­plinary process.

A cagey Mos­ito con­firmed his de­par­ture from the club, but re­fused to di­vulge the rea­sons for leav­ing. He said he had en­joyed his four-year ten­ure at Downs and wished them suc­cess in the fu­ture.

“All I can con­firm is that I have re­signed from the club. Un­for­tu­nately, I can’t re­veal where I am go­ing at this stage,” said Mos­ito.

But a source at the club said more peo­ple could leave.

“All is not well at the club and peo­ple want out,” said the in­sider.

Asked if Mos­ito was up­set with the sit­u­a­tion at the club, the source asked: “Who isn’t gatvol?”

Sun­downs’ act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive Sizwe Nz­i­mande con­firmed that Mos­ito had re­signed.

But Nz­i­mande said there was noth­ing sin­is­ter about Mos­ito’s de­par­ture.

“He sub­mit­ted his res­ig­na­tion and we ac­cepted it. I don’t know if there is any­thing un­to­ward about this be­cause, as far as I am con­cerned, he left on good terms,” said Nz­i­mande.

Although Nz­i­mande said Mashao had re­signed from her po­si­tion, he re­vealed that Rheeder and Madondo were dis­missed af­ter ap­pear­ing be­fore the club’s dis­ci­plinary com­mit­tee on var­i­ous charges.

He re­fused to com­ment on Gqogqo’s on­go­ing hear­ing.
