South Africa’s up market social joint Club Propaganda has denied detaining Flames and Orlando Pirates striker Frank Gabadinho Mhango over alleged non-payment of bills.
This follows a South African online publication Sundayworld article that the striker was on Friday evening detained for hours at the club after allegedly failing to pay a 26 000 rand (about K1.4 million) bill.
The article alleged that the club had to call Pirates officials to bail out the former Nyasa Big Bullets striker.
Videos of Gaba and his friends having fun at the club made rounds on social media soon after the article came out.
However, Club Propaganda has issued a statement denying that they detained the 2019 South Africa Premier Soccer League Golden Boot awardee.
Reads a statement posted on Propaganda’s Facebook page: “We are a world class hospitality facility committed to serve and not to sever ties with priceless clientele. Propaganda refutes detention and failed bill payment claims circulating on social networks and certain media houses, of a named Orlando Pirates striker. This saddening article tarnishes both the image of our respectable patron and our exclusive brand.
“We have never experienced negative challenges of whatsoever, from the above mentioned guest. Our relationship remains healthy, intact, we look forward to continuous hosting of our esteemed guest and countless visitors from all walks of life.”
The player also refuted the story through his official Facebook and Twitter pages.
Gaba, who is struggling with poor form both at the South African club and in the Malawi National Footbal Team, was not available as the Buccaneers beat Chippa United 3-1 on Saturday.
