Rashid Agau has been accused of robbing Tanzanian side Biashara FC after pocketing Tanzanian Shillings 3M and failing to report on duty.
According to earlier reports, the former Onduparaka player was on the verge of joining the newly Promoted Tanzania Premier League side but didn’t due to Maroon’s refusal to release him.
From other sources, this website understands that Maroons couldn’t let go of the forward because of his running contract and his needed service given his appealing performance last season.
Abubaker Ali whom Agau introduced to www.football-256.com as his manager and appointed to speak on his behalf revealed that Maroons FC refused to release the player because of what he brings on table.
“Maroons couldn’t write a release letter because Agau was their best performing player last season and they still needed him,” said Abubaker.
Abubaker further explained that the striker had no option but to refund the money via the agent in Tanzania who was to forward the cash to Biashara.
Our writer was graced by Abubakar to have a glance at a whatsapp conversation between the player and Agent Ibwe which contained a confirmation by Ibwe who disagreed with the amount.
In the conversation, Ibwe demanded Agau to pay USD1,500 in the name of fines and damages caused by the players.
Abubaker explained the reason why Agau didn’t commit to paying the fine as expected by Igwe and making full refund is because Ibwe pocketed part of the 3 millions as a commission.
“Biashara United gave TZS3M through Ibwe the dealer from Tanzania who linked him, of which Agau received TZS2.5M and the remaining balance was taken by him as a commission.”
“Infact Agau made a refund by extra TZS.0.1M. He transferred TZS2.6M.” added Abubaker.
Football-256 understands from the player himself that he might consider taking the loses in days to come by transferring extra TZS0.4M directly to Biashara United.
