It’s a battle of two prominent namesakes – soccer boss David Thidiela and his childhood friend David Mureri, who have fallen out over the dividends of a multimillion-rand investment.

Black Leopards boss Thidiela and Mureri, the archbishop of the United African Apostolic Church, have thrown the Bible out of the window to slug it out over the interest generated by a R7 million investment with Old Mutual six years ago. Thidiela has accused Mureri of short-changing him on his investment. The angry owner of the Limpopo-based National First Division club wants Mureri and Old Mutual to pay him the interest they promised him when he made the investment back in 2015.
