Following rumors that Gor Mahia had handed John Makwatta a dishonored cheque, the AFC Leopards forward has responded to the whole transfer saga.
The 2016 KPL top scorer was close to joining Gor Mahia who even presented him with a cheque as sign-on fee money but later opted to join Leopards. The former Ulinzi Stars forward was out of contract after his deal with Kuwaitian club Al-Nasr SC expired.
Speaking to futaa, Makwatta cleared the air on the whole drama involving Ingwe and K'Ogalo, "That's a situation that usually happens during the transfer season but there was nothing much into that, I just made my decision and I decided to join AFC in the last minute because I was already in contact with them for a long time.
When pressed to speak about the cheque that surfaced online, Makwatta had this to say, "That is a story that was on social media so you never know who did that, I don't know the details of that story and I cannot speak about it now because it is the past."
