"Whatever is happening here, I’m on Mamkhize’s side. Go @kwa_mammkhize!!!"
Tweeps took to Pearl's comment section to share their thoughts on Khizo's decision. Check out some of their comments below:
"I beg to differ with you Sis Pearl and I have much respect to Mamkhize but on this case she was misguided by her legal team for their own benefit. I don't see her winning this court case, it was unwise decision they took for not participating in the play's off last month."
"Indeed, I really don't understand the logic behind, only giving 3 points to a team when the season ended, and when the other team has already won the league."
"Well it doesn't matter we told her it is not a winnable case and look now. She should have participated in play offs and maybe she would be promoted now. Anyway I doubt you even understand football matters."
"Unfortunately things won't go Royal AM's way but keep on supporting a dear sister."
