Phakaaathi sources close to Sikhakhane have revealed that he has handed the matter over to his lawyers as he seeks justice following his much publicised suspension from Chilli Boys in December.
According to the team, Sikhakhane was suspended after he had come to the side’s training session reeking of alcohol early in December, a day before the team was to play a Nelson Mandela memorial match against Mthatha Bucks.
But Sikhakhane is yet to be formally charged by the team which is why he has opted for the legal route. He still denies that he had been drunk or smelt of alcohol on the said occasion.
Sikhakhane – who is back home in Richards Bay – declined to comment, saying the matter is now being dealt with by his lawyers.
