U-April uthi kubuhlungu ukuthi iningi labasubathi lithwele kanzima kwezezimali ngenxa yezizathu eziningi ezinye zazo ezingagwemeka. Uveze ukuthi esinye sazo wukusondelana kwemijaho emikhulu kuleli.

Le mijaho athi isondelene ubale i-Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon egijinyelwa e-Cape Town eba ngoMbasa, Comrades Marathon egijinywa ngoNhlangulana, Gauteng Marathon eba ngoMandulo, Legends Marathon egijinyelwa e-East London, e-Eastern Cape ngoNcwaba  neSoweto Marathon egijinywa ngoLwezi.

U-April uthe kulukhuni kakhulu ukuthi umsubathi ogijime i-Comrades aphinde asubathe kwi-Gauteng . Uthe nakuba isiza imijaho ethathwa njengemincane kodwa kayiwenzi umehluko emaphaketheni abasubathi.

I-Comrades ikhokhela umsubathi oshaye intambo kuqala isamba sika-R375 000, Two Oceans ne-Gauteng bakhokha u-R250 000 bese kuthi iSoweto ne-Legends  bakhokhe u-R100 000.

Wazi kahle ukuthi ukube uyigijimile ubengeke ayivikele indondo yakhe kwi-Comrades,” kusho u-April. Nokho lo msubathi ukuvezile ukuthi ngeke vele abasubathi bayigijime yonke le mijaho ngenxa yokuthi unyaka unezinyanga ezili-12 kuphela.

“Okungenani i-Athletics South Africa (ASA) mayisebenzisane nabahleli bale mijaho emikhulu, bahlele izinyanga ngendlela ezovumela abasubathi ukuthi basubathe noma engaphezulu kowodwa ngonyaka,” usho kanje. Lo mgijimi odabuka e-Eastern Cape unxuse osomabhizinisi ukuthi bafake imali nasemijahweni emincane.

Uthe lokhu kungawenza kakhulu umehluko kubasubathi. E-KZN imijaho athi idinga uxhaso iZululand Marathon egijinywa phakathi koLundi noNongoma  ekhokhela imoto kophume indawo yokuqala, Ethekwini Township to Township ephakathi koMlazi noMashu eklomelisa ngo-R40 000 kowokuqala.
