Social media users react to the breaking news
"PSL Exco has approved Bloem Celtic's sale to Mamkhize for R50-million. Now the only outstanding matter is for the money to exchange hands between Celtic boss Max Tshabalala and the buyer, Shauwn Mkhize. Celtic will relocate to KZN and change the name to Royal AM."
"Bidvest Wits gets sold and it becomes TTM who themselves get sold and become Marumo Gallants. Then TTM jumps out of the Marumo Gallants purchase slip and buys Royal AM. Royal AM likely to jump out of the TTM purchase slip and buy Bloem Celtic. Bloem Celtics will buy NFD status."
