Jabu Pule once said the highest salary he ever got from Kaizer Chiefs, was +/-R6000.00. Now Thabiso Malatsi has also come out to say the same. Chances are the likes of Junior Khanye, Mbulelo Mabizela, Lerato Chabangu and co also earned slave wages... no wonder our stars die poor pic.twitter.com/bhaeetvFZu— Kokwele M.
