MBABANE- About four months since joining Mbabane Highlanders, ex-Vovovo centre back Aristote Tamuzi has parted ways with the club.

The two parties, according to impeccable sources, went separate ways last week on Wednesday. This happened about four months into Aristote’s six-month contract with Highlanders.
The player, who spent two years with Vovovo FC, was on a E10 000 monthly salary and signed with the black and white side in September.

He was among the marquee signings with every other top team linked, particularly Mbabane Swallows.
Earlier reports had suggested that the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) national had resigned but he has since broken his silence.

“No one at Highlanders took care of me when I got injured during the Bible Cup though it wasn’t a big injury. I told them to give me two weeks and I didn’t recover well. I played again in the CAF Confederation Cup match against Royal AM, I was hurt again. I was taken out of the pitch after aggravating my injury,” he said while claiming he was owed salaries for November and December while also allegedly paying his own medical bills.
Aristote said he now wanted his clearance from Inkunz’emnyama so he could return home.


“I told them to give me my clearance as I don’t want to play for the team anymore. I don’t want to fight with them. I love Highlanders, the boss and the supporters but things didn’t go the way I had imagined as they say in the Bible, a man proposes, God disposes,” he lamented.

Well-informed sources within the club have revealed that Aristote’s knee injury was not responding to treatment. The defender is believed to have passed trials with South African side Moroka Swallows but was not signed due to his recurring knee injury, which the defender disputes as that not being true.

“It’s all lies. I was not signed by Swallows because of the foreign quote not because of any injury I had” he said.
Highlanders Public Relations Officer Kenneth Dlamini could not be drawn for comment after his cell phone rang unanswered when called yesterday.
