Johannesburg- The money woes just do not seem to end for Senzo Meyiwa's family.
Just days after learning that Senzo's insurance policy would be paid out to the family, experts have claimed that the family could lose half of the money to his former club, Orlando Pirates.
According to the South African Players Association, under current policy the PSL insurance paid out after Senzo's death last year will be split between the family and Pirates.
"One of the things we are fighting as a union is the insurance policy of the PSL, which pays out half of the dividends to the club," SAFPU general secretary Thulaganyo Gaoshubelwe told Sowetan this week.
"We would love to see the PSL paying all the money to the family of a player if he's deceased. In case he's declared unfit to play, he should also receive all his money," Thulaganyo added.
The PSL said they could not comment on the matter, but SAFPU says that the insurance usually pays out a player's salary multiplied by 60 months and that there is a R4 million cap on the payout.
