This after former Orlando Pirates’ player Julius Sono filed a court application to have Khoza removed.
Amongst the several claims that he has made, Sono has accused Khoza of causing damage to the supporters’ branches, by letting branches recruit members to operate without the approval of the team, the Sowetan reports.
Apart from wanting Khoza to step down, Sono has also expressed the belief that supporters should be allowed to elect the Orlando Pirates’ chairman as he believes the supporters are the team’s custodians.
Responding to the claims earlier this month, Khoza accused Sono, who is the younger brother of Jomo Sono, of being mentally disturbed.
He said on the team’s website that it was not the first time Sono, who has been highly condemned by the team’s supporters, has made such claims. He wrote: “This is the second time in a space of a month that Orlando Pirates had to attend to his spurious claims. First it was a case he went to open at the Hillbrow Police Station, which after an investigation by Detective Cokozani was thrown out by the prosecutors.
“It is time that Julius gets help as it is really painful to see him in such a compromised mental state. It is a pity that the Sowetan newspaper deemed it fit to provide such prominence to this sad episode in Julius Sono’s life.
The Iron Duke continued: “Then again, we live in a free society where one of our core freedoms is that of the media. Hopefully this prominence will help Julius get help.”
Former Bafana Bafana coach and Jomo Cosmos owner, Jomo Sono has distanced himself from the court battle.
