Detained Marumo Gallants officials to be released

Two Marumo Gallants officials, Rufus Matsena and Tebogo Dlomo, who were detained in Libya are set to return to South Africa.

The club media officer and physiotherapist were detained as surety for unpaid debt following the team’s Caf Confederation Cup match against Al Akhdar on 19 March 2023.

The agreement to release them comes after the mediation meeting held on Thursday.

According to the statement released by the club, “club management has confirmed that the travel documents for the two employees have been returned, and that both Matsena and Dlomo are ready for their much awaited return to their country and families”.

“They will be landing in Johannesburg over the course of the current long weekend.”

Marumo Gallants chairman Abram Sello Said: “We are immensely relieved that our staff will be returning home safely. They are anxious to get back home to their families and their lives here in South Africa. We would like to thank all parties that assisted us getting to this point.”
