- Chippa United boss, Siviwe "Chippa" Mpengesi, teamed up with Minister Lindiwe Sisulu to make a family's dream come true
- Mpengesi gifted an Eastern Cape family a new house
- The kind gesture followed Mpengesi sacking Clinton Larsen as the Chippa head coach
Chippa United boss Siviwe "Chippa" Mpengesi and Minister Lindiwe Sisulu visited an Eastern Cape family to gift them a new house.
Taking to Facebook on Monday, Sbu Ngalwa posted several photos of the gesture on Facebook.
"I spent the better part of my day at Port St Johns - where Minister Lindiwe Sisulu and Chippa Holdings chairman Siviwe Mpengesi were handing over a house to the Moni family. It was lovely bumping into iqhawe, Tusokwakhe Zibula after so many years. #UkusaAfrikaMedia," Ngalwa captioned the post.
Aside from donating a home to the family, Mpengesi gifted a local soccer team new kits and he made a funny jab directed at Clinton Larsen.
“I hope that this kit will result in a player from this village joining Chippa United. Maybe we’ll even get a coach from here,” The Sowetan reported Mpengesi said.
The Chippa boss' kindness followed only hours after he sacked Clinton Larsen as the team's head coach.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Mpengesi fired Larsen following Chippa's loss against the Bucs this past weekend.
