Players had refused to take part in the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League match against TelOne at Baobab if the club had refused to reconsider their salaries. 

Last week, the top-paid player at Ngezi Platinum was said to be earning only $900 (most likey in RTGS$ currency which translates to around US$ 200.00, and players were also reportedly asking for payments to be in US Dollars).

“As a club, we were very surprised and disappointed by the actions of a few of our players on the 3rd of May 2019 when they embarked on an illegal industrial action demanding a revision of their conditions of service,’’ Ngezi Platinum said in a statement.

“This action was taken while negotiations were underway and under circumstances where we didn’t owe them anything.

“Pursuant to the illegal industrial action we had to institute disciplinary proceedings involving the players in question, leading to two of our senior players leaving the club.’’
