Gavin Hunt calls for Kaizer Chiefs to find mental fortitude

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt says his side did well with 10 men, but bemoaned the fact that they could not hold on for a point after the 2-1 defeat to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday.

Hunt’s side slumped to their ninth defeat of the season, which also meant they failed to break into the top eight and could finish in the bottom half of the table for the second time in three seasons not to mention the seven-year trophy drought and counting.

The Amakhosi were reduced to 10 men when Njabulo Blom received a second yellow card in the 38th minute before Thabo Rakhale opened the scoring four minutes later.

Lebogang Manyama equalised in the 66th minute but Amakhosi hearts were broken not for the first time this season when Thabo Mnyamane’s penalty in the eighth minute of stoppage time gave Vhadau Vha Damani all three points.

“Ja I thought we were well in the game obviously until the red-card but we stayed in the front foot, made changes at half-time to stay in the front foot,” Hunt told SuperSport TV.

“Tried to get something to play towards and we did well, we got the goal and if we had a little bit of care upfront sometimes we could have done better.

“We didn’t hold it or gave it away cheaply and obviously we got turned over but we were right in the game, obviously they gonna come out with extra numbers, overload us,” he said.

“But we did well, the changes were right but then that’s pretty much how it has been, you got to have the mentality and the game toughness to see it out but obviously you never know sometimes with what went on.

“The first goal was the same mistake [to the Bloemfontein Celtic game], pretty much things you can’t understand, that’s just down to certain things, ja but I thought we did well to come back in. We could have had a chance to win at the end but they obviously got the bounce of the ball there.”

ANC NEC members: Magashule lacks powers to suspend Ramaphosa

While challenging his own suspension from the ANC, Ace Magashule is also gunning for party leader Cyril Ramaphosa

ANC NEC members: Magashule lacks powers to suspend Ramaphosa

The developments within the African National Congress (ANC) have been jaw-dropping, to say the least – all thanks to the party’s contentious step aside resolution. Now members of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC), its highest decision-making body, have come out against secretary general Ace Magashule. This after he bizarrely ‘suspended’ ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa, in a letter which has been circulating on social media.

“Accordingly, on the authority of the NWC and as a result of the allegations referred to here above, you are hereby temporarily suspended, with immediate effect from 3 May 2021, from all activities of the ANC pending all the internal processes of the ANC, as well as the finalisation of the pending matters to which I have referred…”

Ace Magashule to ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa

ANC NEC members hit back at Ace over Ramaphosa’s ‘suspension’

Responding to Ace Magashule’s letter, ANC NEC member and former Tourism Minister Derek Hanekom said Ace Magashule simply doesn’t have the authority to suspend Cyril Ramaphosa.

“As it happens, Ace is no longer the Secretary General of the ANC. And even if he were, he would have no such constitutional powers,” Hanekom said.

ANC top six member, chairperson Gwede Mantashe similarly told TimesLive and further claimed that Magashule was acting on someone else’s behalf.

“You can’t take decisions on you own in an organisation. It has no consequence. You can’t as an individual write a letter suspending another letter. It means I can also write a letter to somebody else to suspend him. There is no organisation that operates in such a manner,” Mantashe told the publication.

“Yesterday there was an NWC meeting, you can’t walk out of that NWC without having raised any issue and come out and write letters. That letter is not worth the paper it is written on. It’s of no consequence ,” he added.

All comes after the National Working Committee (NWC) resolved to support the enforcement of the step aside resolution, which directs for all party members facing corruption charges and other serious crimes, step aside from their duties or face suspension.

Magashule faces dozens of corruption and fraud charges in relation to a R255 million asbestos tender which was awarded in the Free State, when he was still premier.
