Hunt was snapped up by Gqeberha-based Chippa United and the four-time PSL title winner will return to the FNB Stadium on Saturday, 16 October, five months after parting ways with the Glamour Boys.

Stuart Baxter, who took over from Hunt for second spell in charge at Naturena, was asked if he had any sympathy for Hunt.

“Gavin, Stuart Baxter, Ernst Middendorp – every coach, Pitso Mosimane, we know that everyday were are under pressure. We know that, but we get on with the job,” Baxter said during an online press conference.  

“We have to make a friend of that. I’ve got sympathy for every coach because every coach that is relieved of his duties has got more to offer – not every coach is working at a Manchester City or a virtual perfect world. Every job has the restrictions or the unlucky injuries or the pandemic knocking the supporters out of the stadium – every job has that. My feelings are, strongly, that any coach can be relieved of his duties and not have done anything wrong.”

Both Kaizer Chiefs and Chippa United have struggled this season.

Kaizer Chiefs find themselves in 12th-place in the standings with six points after six matches with a win, three draws and two defeats.

Meanwhile, Chippa United are a position lower in the log with just five points thanks to a win, two draws and three defeats.

Whoever comes out on the losing side – should there be a loser – later on Saturday will be under even more pressure.

Kick-off is at 17:30.

According to the South African Police Service (SAPS), they were doing door-to-door campaigning on Friday evening, 15 October 2021.Spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbele said two others were also shot in the attack and were taken to hospital for their injuries.

ANC to give clarity on councillor’s killing

One of the victims who were killed is EThekwini Municipality ward 101 candidate Siyabonga Mkhize. IOL has quoted the ANC in KZN as confirming Mkhize’s death.

 “We still do not know yet the details of what transpired until we interact with the family and local structures. From tomorrow (Saturday) we will be able to enlighten more the general public as to what happened. We send our condolences to the Mkhize family on behalf of the ANC,” ANC KZN spokesperson Nhlakanipho Ntombela said.

Emer-G-Med spokesperson Kyle van Reenen said their paramedics responded to the scene just after 18:00. They found two males approximately forty years of age in a Nissan Navara. On closer inspection they were found to have sustained multiple gunshot wounds and were declared dead on arrival of paramedics, he said.

Reports from the scene allege one of the deceased to be a candidate Ward Councillor for the area however these details remain speculative. Two other men were rushed to a nearby hospital privately for gunshot wounds prior to the arrival of paramedics and their condition is unknown. The South African Police Services were in attendance and will be conducting the necessary investigations accordingly.

While the details remain unclear, the killing points to being politically motivated, particularly as the country is a little over two weeks away from the Local Government Elections on 1 November. KZN is known as a hotbed for political killings, but isn’t the only province that has seen such – In Tshwane, an ANC ward councillor candidate, Tshepo Motaung, was killed in a hail of bullets when driving home from a Heritage Day event back in September.
