'We didn’t come in from a philanthropic angle. This football club is meant to be a business and we are running it as one. We want the club to get recognition locally, continentally and globally.'

Sinenjabulo has a vision for the club, and she believes her passion for making AmaZulu FC an iconic club will keep her going. Sinenjawilllo expressed:

'I believe this club has one of the biggest followings. That’s because the name AmaZulu is backed by people in one of the most populated provinces, the Zulu nation itself. One of the things that I took for granted at first is the giant brand that AmaZulu is. For a long time, it has been a sleeping giant. Now, together with the board, I have the huge responsibility of awakening that giant.'
