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.
