Kaizer Chiefs’ bullying tactics exposed on how they blocked Khama Billiat’s move to other SA clubs

New details have emerged regarding the transfer saga involving Zimbabwean forward Khama Billiat and South African club Kaizer Chiefs.

An insider has shed light on how Chiefs used their influence to prevent other clubs in the South African Premiership from signing Billiat after he rejected their contract offer.

It was reported that Billiat expressed interest in joining Cape Town City, currently in second place on the DStv Premiership table. He even trained with SuperSport United for three days but stopped attending training sessions thereafter.

A source who spoke to H-Metro alleges that Kaizer Chiefs stalked Khama Billiat and used intimidation tactics to discourage other South African clubs from signing him.

“The South African football scene is a complex one and it’s like Animal Farm, all the teams are equal but some teams are more equal than others. Some clubs like Chiefs and Pirates wield considerable influence and when they feel you have betrayed them they really make life very difficult for you. They will track your movements and even intimidate other clubs from signing you and this is the predicament that Khama found himself in,” the source said.

The source emphasised that no South African club was willing to sign Billiat, not because he does not fit the bill but rather due to intimidation tactics.

“No SA club was going to sign him, not because he wasn’t good enough but these clubs were being told that there will be serious problems if they sign him. I would like to think that Khama is safer now that he is home, especially given all the ugly politics that was happening in the background,” the source added.

Reports indicate that Khama Billiat, now with Yadah Stars in Zimbabwe’s Premiership on a one-year contract, has chosen to settle back home permanently. He has enrolled his daughter in a local school, and his belongings have been relocated from South Africa to his Harare residence.
