- EFF national spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi was in awe after his visit with EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu to the Kaizer Chiefs village
- The two politicians were treated like royalty as Kaizer Motaung handed them customised Amakhosi jerseys
Briefly.co.za recently reported that EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi urged South African universities to bestow an honorary doctorate on Kaizer Chiefs founder Kaizer Motaung.
The EFF statement was based on the fact that Motaung successfully founded and grew the Chiefs brand into a major success for 50 years.
It seems the love affair between the Amakhosi and EFF runs even deeper as both Ndlozi and EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu paid a visit to the Kaizer Chiefs village.
Kaizer Chiefs rolled out the red carpet for the two politicians as they received a hero's welcome.
Both men received customised versions of the commemorative 50th anniversary Chiefs top.
The special jerseys reflected their surnames at the back and were handed over by Motaung himself.
Understandably, Ndlozi was gushing after the memorable moment and shared his reaction via Twitter:
"Yesterday, we visited the @KaizerChiefs love & peace village to get our 50th Anniversary glamorous t-shirts. Warm reception indeed ❤️. I really don’t remember choosing to be a fan of #Amakhosi, just like I don’t remember choosing to be born. #KhosiFanFromBirth"
Briefly.co.za noted that the tweet went viral and fans reacted strongly to the news.
IKE THAMI KHUMALO (@ITKHUMALO) lashed out:
"GREAT FOR YOU. SOME FANS WERE TOLD TO SHUT UP SINCE CHIEFS IS A FAMILY BUSINESS AND DIRECTORS DON'T SUBMIT CV'S OR VOTED INTO OFFICE LIKE IN IFP OR ANC. SHOWS THAT SOME FANS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS."
lwaz (@LwaizakaM) praised the EFF stance:
"Celebrate your own. Others are fans of European clubs and don’t support local. Last month I bought a Juventus & @CapeTownCityFC jersey for my son. Tomorrow am taking him to watch City flr the 2nd time this year. Invest locally."
Stanley (@Stanleymaghetto) added,
"We shall expropriate the League title without compensation, from Sundowns, we remain Amakhosi 4 Life."
