2,5 MILLION PRICE TAG FOR KHAMA BILLIAT

Mamelodi Sundowns could be prepared to sell their star striker Khama Billiat if a club meets their $2,5 million valuation of the Zimbabwe international.

Billiat is believed to be the subject of interest for Egyptian sides, including Al-Ahly, and while Sundowns are keen to hold on to the player, they could be tempted to sell at the right price.

European sides, however, are unlikely to be willing to meet Sundowns’ valuation of one of their “CBD” trio.

Billiat is one of the three Sundowns players who made the Confederation of African Football Champions League Team of the Week after their impressive performances thus far in the competition. Teko Modise and Thabo Nthethe were also picked as some of the top performers in the continental competition after Match Day Four.

Modise was a marvel to watch as he pulled the strings and commanded the midfield in Sundowns’ 1-0 win over Egyptian giants, Zamalek, last week.

Billiat tormented the Zamalek defence and came close to scoring on numerous occasions. Nthethe was solid at the back and easily thwarted every attacking effort Zamalek tried.

Cote d’Ivoire giants, Asec Mimosas, also have three players in the team, with defender Nabi Ibrahim Kone, midfielders, Nimaki and Diarrassouba

HIGH COURT CLEARS DEMO

HARARE – The High Court of Zimbabwe has cleared tomorrow’s mass demonstration against bond notes which the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe says it will launch in October.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police had early on banned the demonstration which coincides with another march organised by thousands of unemployed university graduates, some of whom are trying to eke out a difficult living as street vendors.

The jobless graduates are demanding the 2,2 million jobs that Zanu PF promised in the run-up to the hotly-disputed 2013 national elections.

ZimPF interim president Joice Mujuru has also reportedly engaged lawyers to file a chamber application to stop the introduction of the bond notes.

According to Kennedy Masiye, a lawyer from the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR), Justice Lavender Makoni has ordered the police not to interfere with the demonstration.

The ZLHR had made an urgent chamber application on behalf of Transform Zimbabwe political party seeking to bar the police from interfering with a demonstration which is scheduled for tomorrow in the capital
