The former SA cricketer is apparently having financial problems after retiring from cricket in 2010. A source told Move magazine that things are so bad that Makhaya can no longer afford his lavish lifestyle.
“Makhaya’s situation is so sad because he is one of the greatest cricketers that this country has ever produced and he cannot be left suffering. The man is broke and he’s not the same jovial Makhaya that everyone knows. It is clear that being inactive is eating him. But he’s one of those proud guys who wont’t speak out and ask for anyone’s help…”
But Makhaya is not bothered by the rumours. He told Move: “I’m chilling at home and not doing anything. Remember I am a retired man and no longer in the public eye so with all due respect I don’t want any media attention. Please respect that.”
