- Ndlozi called on all universities to award an honorary doctorate to Motaung
EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has urged South African universities to bestow an honorary doctorate on Kaizer Chiefs founder Kaizer Motaung.
The request came on the cusp of the Amakhosi's 50th anniversary and the EFF wished them well for reaching the impressive milestone.
Motaung has been at the helm since the club's inception in 1970.
Under his guidance, Chiefs grew into one of the most recognisable brands in South Africa.
The EFF statement goes on to explain how the Chiefs fanbase has grown to 16 000 000 and that the club has won more than 50 trophies.
Briefly.co.za gathered that in an effort to maintain neutrality, the EFF added that it does not support Kaizer Chiefs.
However, the party went on to add that it supports black excellence, black power and black love.
Chihanyisa...(@I_AM_PHUMUDZ0) threw his weight behind the cause:
"I support the notion.. He has done a great job of helping the communities and putting Mzansi in the map."
Katishi Masemola (@rragomoditi) vocalised his support as well:
"Great proposition, cant agree more! Even if it's one or two Ntate Motaung deserves it."
Didimus Judas Thomas (@Thomas87545829) added,
"You are right there Doc.... the man deserve it even the ANC, EFF & ZCC combine can't match the support the man amassed through this brand. Its one of the solely black made success."
Bob's Pfunk (@PhetoloZA) shared an interesting revelation:
"He does deserve one.However, Kaizer Motaung is on record about this matter. He has publicly declared that he does not want one, and will not be accepting any."
