Speaking during a visit to flood-ravaged areas in KwaZulu natal on Saturday, CAF President and businessman Dr Patrice Motsepe announced that his family foundation would be donating R30 million to KZN flood relief efforts.

In an interview to eNCA, Motsepe explained that a committee would be established and would include representatives from the Zulu royal family, the Shembe church and the KZN provincial government because these are the people who have a better understanding of where the funds really need to go.

Kaizer Chiefs’ DStv Premiership campaign took another hit with SuperSpot United beating them 1-0 on Saturday evening.

This happened in front of Amakhosi’s supporters who were in the stadium for the first time since the advent of Covid-19. The game did not draw a big crowd as it would have been expected but that could be blamed on Johannesburg’s weepy and cold weather this weekend.
