The versatile defender alleges to be owed financial compensation by former club TTM in an ongoing legal battle.

"Eish it's been a sad festive season, as we speak, I can't afford to buy bread for my kids," Jampies tells KickOff.

"I have to depend on friends or family members to help me on a day-to-day basis.

"I could not even afford to buy gifts for my kids. It's an extremely emotional and frustrating time when I should be showing love and affection to my loved ones.

"That's how my Christmas is or was going.

"I will always recommend senior or players with responsibilities like myself not to be afraid to question certain things or actions.

"I feel that's the difference between the rich and the poor. Rich and talented people are not afraid to ask questions.

"As poor people, we always tend to worry about the outcome or what would be thought or said about us. Which in my book, should not be the case.

"According to my lawyer, TTM had until the 5th of December to appeal the case, which they did not.

"So now according to my lawyer and his team, they are waiting for the PSL to give them a date."
