The Lions of the North minority shareholder shares his impressions on the proposed club sale
Highlands Park co-director Sinky Mnisi says he will fight tooth and nail to stop the sale of the club to TS Galaxy owner Tim Sukazi.
The veteran administrator has vowed to ensure the Lions of the North are not sold, saying he doesn’t know anything if the media reports suggesting the Rockets boss has acquired his club are true or not.
Although he is in a minority, Mnisi also insinuated he was not informed of the sale as he only found out about it in the media.
“I don’t know if it is true or not but if there is such a thing like reports suggest to us. Then I will make sure I get my way,” Mnisi told Phakaaathi.
“I want to show even the new generation that you can get your way even if you are a minority. I will get my way about the sale of the club.
“I will stand my ground. I will stop whatever is coming to the club with that sale. I don’t know if it is true or not but if it is I will fight it.”
Mnisi’s sentiments come after chairman, Brad Kaftel, confirmed to local media that they are in talks with Sukazi in an aim to ease the club’s expenses, saying should they sell the club, the money will go to pay their debts brought about by the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
Although the latest reports suggested the MTN8 losing finalists have already been sold, Kaftel‚ refuted the claims adding that there’s a possibility of selling should Sukazi meet their financial demands.
