Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs are yet to pay-out Sula Matovu and Ivan Bukenya after the pair agreed to mutually terminate their contracts with the club.

The Ugandan stars were part of a clear-out of up to 20 players at Naturena during the off-season period, and agreed to leave Chiefs for an agreed cash settlement.

Matovu and Bukenya were initially transfer-listed, however it was later reported the club had decided to terminate their contracts by mutual consent. After settlements were agreed, the two players were handed their clearances.

Nonetheless, it has since been revealed that Matovu and Bukenya are still waiting for their payouts, despite the fact that two months have passed since the agreement was reached.

"When their contracts were terminated, they were promised that within a week or so their money would be paid out after the calculations (had been made), as Matovu had two years left and Bukenya had one year still to go," an unnamed source told Soccer Laduma.

"But, as I speak to you, nothing has happened yet. It is two months down the line and it's not good for the players because that money is due to them."

The Ugandans struggled to make their mark at Chiefs during their time at the club, and will no doubt be looking for new opportunities elsewhere in the near future.
