  • A defiant Sinky Mnisi said that he was still Royal AM CEO despite being suspended
  • The colourful Mnisi was speaking at a press conference he convened to clarify his position within the club's setup
  • The storied administrator instead said he was put on 'special leave' to "recuperate"

Despite reports that he has been suspended from his duties, Sinky Mnisi insists that he is still Royal AM's CEO.

Mnisi was speaking to the media in a press conference that he organised at the OR Tambo International Airport.

According to The Citizen, he said:

“For the record, all these allegations made against me are factually incorrect. Without substance and malicious. I had high expectations that the president of Royal AM [Shauwn Mkhize] would refute (the suspension claims) and distance herself from these allegations."

“When a question about my alleged suspension was directly posed to her, she did not categorically deny that I was not placed in suspension. She allowed for my reputation to be tried, found guilty and hanged by the media. I am hurt, offended, humiliated and most of all disappointed."

Last week, owner Shauwn "Mamkhize" Mkhize caused more confusion regarding the situation instead of providing the much-needed clarity.

She said to Robert Marawa on his show Marawa Sports Worldwide:

“I am not going to answer that (question about Mnisi being suspended) because it is the same thing that has happened with the (Victor) Letsoalo matter. The media can say whatever they want to say. If I have something to say about my CEO I will call a media briefing. I do that all the time."

Victor Letsoalo blames politics for failed Kaizer Chiefs move from Royal AM after joining Sekhukhune United

Politics are alleged to be blamed for Victor Letsoalo's failed move from Royal AM to Kaizer Chiefs.

As reported by Sports Brief, the 29-year-old striker suddenly turned out at Sekhukhune United after being linked with the Amakhosi for most of last season.

It was also reported that Orlando Pirates had him on their radar, but this never materialised.
