Naturena – As it is that time of the year where incentives are granted to employees or staff member for a year well done or just an annual increase and in South African football clubs is also expected. Christmas bonus rebellion at Kaizer Chiefs has been a torn in the flesh, which allegedly resulted in boss lady Jessica Motaung angrily wishing her father and founder Kaizer Motaung could release her from her job, has erupted at the club’s headquarters in Naturena.
The mutiny allegedly reached a fervent pitch last week when Jessica’s sister Kemiso wrote a stinging e-mail to staff members telling them to hit the road if they were not happy with their jobs.
Her alleged rant resulted in staff morale reaching its lowest ebb.
It also led to some staff members contemplating to boycott the Christmas party at PH Network Cafe in Mondeor, south of Joburg, on Wednesday.
Motaungs drew a blank as a “Sunday newspaper” tried to reached them for comments. Club spokesman Vina Maphosa asked for written questions on Wednesday. However, he failed to respond at the time of going to press.
Three independent sources, who didn’t want to be named for fear of reprisal, confirmed that the staff at Naturena were unhappy for not receiving their salary increases.
They were supposed to have received them in July this year.
