Denver Mukamba lashes out at Dynamos for unpaid salaries

Zimbabwe and Dynamos midfielder Denver Mukamba has alleged that Dynamos owe him three month’s salary.
Labelled as an outcast by Zimbabwean media, Mukamba claims the Harare football giants owe him a salary and part of his signing-on fees, but will not pester the club because he loves it very much.
The former University of Pretoria, Bidvest Wits and Jomo Cosmos midfielder in South Africa is currently banned from joining up with the rest of the squad in their pre-season due to disciplinary problems.
Speaking to the News Day website last Friday, the player revealed that he is struggling, but will find a way to support his family.
Mukamba stays with his grandmother, Gogo Kawinga (who raised the star after the death of his mother), his wife and their two children and a host of cousins.
“I have not received my salary for a while now. I’m doing some minor jobs to take care of my grandmother and the whole family,” Mukamba said.
“I’m a man; I have to provide for the family one way or the other. What I cannot do is to moan about my financial situation to the Press every day.
“Even though I’m not getting my salary, I will not speak ill about the club because I love this institution very much.
“I’m just waiting and hoping that they will send through my salary. I last received my salary in November last year.
“When I ask them, they promise that they will send it through. But I’m not worried much about that because I have been through that for most of my football career.”
Mukamba signed a two-year contract last June on his return from an unsuccessful stint in South Africa.
According to him, he was supposed to receive $20 000 in signing-on fees, but was only given a car as part of the deal, worth $6 500 and is yet to receive the balance.
“Failing to get a salary should not be the end of my life. I have been in this situation before,”‘ adds 25-year old.
“And even when I go for about two months without a salary, people around me will not even notice it because my life will go on as normal.
“I will find other means of getting money to sustain my family.”
