If information coming through from Zimbabwe is anything to go by, winger Khama Billiat is yet to report for camp.
The Warriors are finalising their preparations for the 2017 CAF Africa Cup of Nations and the player claims that he has been told by his South African club Mamelodi Sundowns to take some extra days off.
News Day website reports that Billiat was expected to link up with the rest of the squad on Thursday, January 22 after arriving in the country earlier last week.
However, he reportedly pitched up for a few minutes at the training ground on the day before leaving in a huff.

It is reported that he did not attend the session again on Friday with coach Kalisto Pasuwa saying he had asked to be excused.
Together with Knowledge Musona, who was expected to arrive from his base in Belgium on Saturday night, they were the only absentees from the team’s training ground.
“He (Billiat) is not here, but the team manager is handling the issue. He came this afternoon at the hotel and told me that he was in possession of a letter written by his club demanding that we should give him time off,” said Pasuwa.
“I will need to see the letter first. I can’t say anything as of now. He just told me there was a letter from his club, so I have told him to bring it.”
Billiat was last active for his club on December 22 as he featured for the Brazilians against Baroka in the South African Absa Premiership.
