A couple of videos circulating on social media show us Bobby Motaung partying like it’s 1999 again. What a minute… aren’t we in a nationwide lockdown? 🤔

Yesterday the club came out with a statement lamenting the behavior of their football manager.
“As part of our policies and continuous process of monitoring the public conduct of our members, players, and staff, Kaizer Chiefs has decided to summarily suspend football manager Bobby Motaung,
“This is a result of a number of videos circulating on social media wherein the football manager is seen taking part in festivities during what looks like the lockdown period. The club has been involved in the internal processes of investigating his conduct, which led to the decision to suspend him.

“With the Covid-19 pandemic, our processes have been intensified and stringent measures have been put in place to ensure the club and its members play a role in the curbing of the spread of the virus and flattening the curve,” the statement read further.
“Subsequently, the club would like to confirm that Bobby Motaung is suspended with immediate effect up to and including 31 August 2020. He is not allowed to accompany the team to any training session or scheduled matches.”
Damn, why wasn’t I invited to that lockdown house party? 😥 Champagne, hubbly, expensive whiskey, ladies, the works!
My low social standing aside, I commend Kaizer Chiefs for taking immediate action. The video did its rounds online in the afternoon and by 8 p.m. Bobby was suspended.
Everybody knows that this is a gesture by Kaizer Chiefs to save face. A suspension till the 31 of August isn’t really throwing the hammer down on Bobby. Especially in a lockdown where he’d rather be at home anyway, drinking more of that expensive whiskey I spoke about earlier.
He unlike you or me didn’t apply for this job. This is his Dad’s club. When el Presidente retires he will be next in line to take over the reins.
I don’t blame him.
If I had his type of money I’d be throwing parties every weekend (I think this is the reason I DON’T have his type of money). What he should be worried about is the idiot who took the video in the first place.
