Naturally South African sports fans and fans of MaMkhize could not wait to share their thoughts on this interesting news. While some opposed MaMkhize’s decision, others praised her for always going after what she wants so fearlessly. Read some of their comments below:


“PSL must expel Royal AM and ban the Mkhizes from any football-related affairs for 5 years, lol”

@D_Nkitseng said:

“This is an awesome development, Bloemfontein Celtic has a fan base, History, and everything. All they need is monied owner, Show them, wena Madam”

What’s up with Royal AM though?

Briefly News reports that Royal AM, which is owned by MaMkhize, was found guilty by a disciplinary committee on 11 August this year for failing to honour four promo-relegation playoff matches for the PSL.

It all started when Royal AM was not awarded with a league title for the GladAfrica Championship. The team finished the season in the first place but then had points removed and this upset MaMkhize who took to social media to vent about the hardships a woman is faced within what is highly considered a man’s business.

The team has reportedly not been sentenced yet.
