Khama Billiat Signed Jerseys Sold For R475k

When Khama signed a contract with Prophet Walter Magaya’s Yadah FC last week, it made headlines. At the Heart Stadium in Harare on February 29, Yadah revealed the 33-year-old midfielder, who had a distinguished career in South Africa.

The event, which also included a supper extravaganza and an auction of Billiat’s jerseys, drew thousands of fans and celebrities. At auction, three signed jerseys of his brought in R475k (about US$25,000k).

Three jerseys brought in R95 000 (US$5,000), while the other two sold for R119 000 (US$10,000). The purchasers were purportedly a politician and business magnates who wished to endorse Billiat and Yadah. The club announced that the auction’s revenues would support youth development and charitable causes.

Khama received a R380 000 (US$20,000) sign-on fee and a R95 000 (US$5,000) monthly salary from Yadah FC. He expressed gratitude to the club and the fans for the warm welcome.

“Firstly, I want to thank God. There is so much love in Zimbabwe. This is great. I have been homesick for some time, and being here, having so much love, I’m looking forward to enjoying football here in Zimbabwe. I’m grateful that I still have a chance to play here in Zimbabwe. I don’t think I’ve ever been loved like this before. I didn’t know how it was; it’s a great feeling. Yadah FC is a special team, and I have been watching them, they play beautiful football despite winning or losing. Their football is beautiful. I came from an academy so this is the only place I thought I would come. They showed so much love for me, and they sacrificed a lot for me,”

He also received a brand new Land Rover Defender from Yadah as part of his deal.

Yadah FC snatched Khama last week just as he was about to join giant Dynamos FC after he left Amakhosi in June 2023. The “Miracle Boys” then shook off competition from Manica Diamonds and offered him a sweeter deal.
