Kaiser Motaung’s 75th birthday
The ANC wishes the Chairman of Kaiser Chiefs Football Club, Kaiser Motaung a happy belated 75th birthday. Motaung, who founded the Glamour Boys almost 50 years ago, celebrated his 75th birthday on Wednesday16 October 2019. Fondly known as Chincha Guluva, Motaung is widely respected for building the huge Amakhosi brand that is followed by millions throughout the African continent. He was superb as a player for great rivals Orlando Pirates, who recruited him as a 16-year-old, and also made a name overseas as he went on to star for Atlanta Chiefs in the USA.
Motaung was only 24 years in 1969 when he started the mighty Amakhosi - originally as a touring side called Kaizer XI - yet he showed vision beyond his years. His innovative attitude has shaped Kaizer Chiefs through the years and they remain the most popular and one of the most successful clubs in South Africa. We thank him for all he has done for the football in South Africa, the continent and the world. We acknowledges also his championing of non-racialism in sport in our country. Finally we thank him for creating and building a legacy for many generations to come and wishes him good health and success in the years to come.
