Kaizer Chiefs have responded to Gor Mahia's claims that they have not paid for Godfrey Walusimbi.

Goal is in possession of a letter from the Kenyan club where they are accusing Amakhosi of not honouring an agreement which saw the Ugandan left-back move to Amakhosi three weeks ago. 

However, Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung disputed these claims, saying they have paid for the player while urging the Kenyan club to relax. 

"I don't know what they are talking about. They were paid. How long does international transfer take?" asked Motaung when contacted by Goal

"They're just desperate. What are the foreign laws saying? They must just relax and stop being desperate. Chiefs is a big club and we don't go around owing people. We paid them," added Motaung. 

"To transact money internationally is not like dealing with Standard Bank or Nedbank where the money will reflect immediately. We paid them. That's why I am saying that they are just desperate. They should just chill," concluded Motaung.

Walusimbi has already featured twice for the Glamour Boys this season, and Chiefs appear likely to continue using him having signed and registered him legally.

At first, Gor Mahia accused Chiefs of tapping Walusimbi, who apparently trained with them without Gor Mahia's permission. 

However, the two parties sat down and came to an agreement which eventually saw Walusimbi sign on the dotted line with Chiefs. 

The 29-year-old is one of the highly rated players in Kenya, and his departure has certainly not gone down well with the Gor Mahia management. 

Gor Mahia have given Amakhosi 10 days to pay for the transfer of Walusimbi.

Not so long ago, Chiefs were involved in a battle with Madagascan club Fosa Juniors over Andriamirado Hasina Andrianarimanana, but Fifa ruled in their favour and the player was successfully registered with the PSL.
