Former Bidvest Wits defender Buhle Mkhwanazi has revealed how much he used to earn at the now defunct club.

Mkhwanazi had a decent career at The students and also won the 2016/17 PSL title.

The 33-year-old says although he was one of the biggest earners at the club, his soul was still suffering.

Mkhwanazi earned R 195 000.00 from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019 and R 175 000.00 from1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020.

He was supposed to earn R 190 000.00 from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021 but the club had been sold.


In an emotional note on his Instagram page on Thursday, the former AmaTuks player says he now feels like a free man.

“I remember l used to boast about the numbers on my contract. Not knowing that my soul was suffering,” he wrote.

“The day Jesus Christ visited me I never
knew that all this will be taken away from me by him just for my soul to be saved.

“Today I boast about my weaknesses. But with a soul that is prospering. It is better to hear the voice of God than being rich without knowing that your soul is in danger.

“I urge many to be rich in all things, receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal savior and you shall recover all one day.”


Mkhwanazi is currently without a club after parting ways with SuperSport United. This is after the former Bafana Bafana player refused to take the covid-19 vaccine jab. SuperSport subsequently terminated his services.

Mkhwanazi started his career at Mamelodi Sundowns during the 2010/11 season. He was later loaned to Bloemfontein Celtic as well as University of Pretoria.

But a move to Bidvest Wits in 2014 restricted his career and he also became a regular at Bafana Bafana.
