Highlanders Players Continue Strike Over Unpaid Salaries
Highlanders players continued with their strike yesterday over unpaid salaries by refusing to train for the third day until their grievances are fully addressed.
The players also dismissed the club’s chief executive officer, Nhlanhla Dube’s allegations they were given time off for the rest of the week “so that their muscles recover”. One player who spoke to The Chronicle said:
Like we said, until we are paid what is due to us, we will not attend any training session. The club must find the money and give us because the situation where we stay is now out of hand and we can’t bear it any more. It’s not true that we were given time off; we are on strike and have vowed not to return until our bank accounts indicate that money has been deposited.
