Swallows’ fiery axe falls on all DDC coaches

The drama at the embattled Moroka Swallows is nowhere near being over, as the club has been on a firing spree, booting out the entire DStv Diski Challenge (DDC) coaching staff with immediate effect last Sunday.

Swallows CEO Sipho Xulu confirmed the news to Sunday World that the club has dissolved the DDC technical team.

Coach Matsemela Thoka, along with his assistant, goalkeeper coach, and strength and conditioning coach, are said to be no longer with the club.

It is alleged the DDC technical team members have also not been paid their salaries and contract settlement payments for over three months.

“I can confirm that the news is true, we have parted ways with the DDC coaching staff,” Xulu revealed to Sunday World yesterday.

“However, I can’t comment on issues of salaries being paid or not because the matter is between employer and employee.”

Moreover, with the DStv Premiership set to resume this week, it is still not clear whether Steve Komphela will be on the Swallows bench when they take on Cape Town City on Tuesday.

A reliable source who did not want to be named for fear of victimisation said general manager Elasto Kapowezha is working overtime behind the scenes to get rid of Komphela and everyone who came with him.
