Football players, like everybody else, are also heavily in debt and trying hard to make ends meet. The crew at Usuzwile Mkhozi found out how tough it really is for some of these guys.
After being given his clearance as he had been deemed surplus to requirements a player known as Oskido had to face his creditors. They had written him a letter of demand and he replied...
I acknowledge receipt of your letter dated July 7 2008 in which for the third time, you request that I pay the monies owed to you. I first want you to know that by no means do I dispute my debt and I intend to pay as soon as possible.
However, I would like to bring to your attention that you are not my only creditor. I have many more creditors, quite as honourable and important as you, and whom I wish to pay too. That is why, each month, I throw all the names of my creditors into a hat and draw one randomly. The one drawn is paid immediately.
I hope that yours will come out shortly.
Oskido (real name withheld)
PS: I regret to inform you that given the harsh and threatening tone of your last letter, you will not be taking part in the next three draws.
