Stuart Baxter reveals the one change he is contemplating ahead of Kaizer Chiefs vs Marumo Gallants

Kaizer Chiefs coach Baxter has revealed the one change he is contemplating making ahead of the DStv Premiership clash against Marumo Gallants.

Baxter’s side travel to the North of the country to take on the Gallants, in a fixture that Chiefs will be desperate to win. 

Chiefs have struggled for form

Chiefs have only managed just the sole victory during the current DStv Premiership season, with two losses and a draw. Now baxter will be eager to use the fixture against Gallants as a catalyst for a turn around in fortunes.

That, however, will not come without  its challenges, as Baxter has been rocked by three fresh injury issues. On top of the already unavailable trio of striker Leonardo Castro, winger Dumisani Zuma and defender Siyabonga Ngezana, Chiefs are set to play Gallants without new signings in midfielder Phathutshedzo Nange and Winger Kgaogelo Segkota who picked up injuries in the embarrassing 1-4 loss against Royal AM last week Saturday.

Injuries have not helped their cause

If that was not bad enough for Baxter, Chiefs confirmed this morning that star striker Samir Nurkovic will also be missing for Amakhosi as they tackle Gallants. Those injuries will undoubtedly have the veteran British mentor scratching his head, having also confirmed that veteran forward-cum midfielder Bernard Parker can only play off the bench as he continues to nurse a broken bone on his hand.

Chiefs will have to make changes though and Baxter has discussed the one change that he may make ahead of this game. 

Baxter reveals his contemplated change

“Bernard is fit, but he’s still in a little bit of pain. He can give us something if needed. The attacking unit will be without Samir (Nurković). Samir is injured, he’s got to have an operation (to repair a damaged meniscus), so we will reshuffle the attacking unit. (Phatutshedzo) Nange is away from midfield, he’s injured (adductor muscle). We will need to also reshuffle the midfield area. That may mean we bring in Reeve Frosler and shuffle up in that way. There are a few changes, maybe in personnel and tweaking the shape a little bit.” Baxter said

How will Baxter incorporate Frosler? Will he move Blom to the midfield and play Frosler at right back? Will he slot him in the midfield or further forward, two roles he has previously played for Chiefs, what are your thoughts? Feel free to leave a comment below.

EFF Manifesto: Wealth taxes and RDP houses in Sandton

The EFF manifesto is here. And if you listen to Julius Malema, so too could be plenty of land...and even RDP houses in Sandton.

EFF Manifesto: Wealth taxes and RDP houses in Sandton

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) have unveiled their new manifesto, going into the upcoming Local Government Elections. As expected, party leader Julius Malema was in top-form as he revealed the party’s key promises. From the usual remarks about land for all, to promises to distribute jobs on a 50 50 gender basis, let’s take a look at some of the standout points.

“Clearly spelt out, the overarching objective of the EFF is to build developmental municipalities, imbued with the will and desire to reverse centuries of ill-treatment, subjugation, and inhumanity that African people have been subjected to in the land of their birth.

It is now a fact beyond doubt that the so-called former liberation movement has failed and is nearing the end of its disintegration process.”

EFF manifesto launch: RDP houses coming soon to Sandton?

The party says its manifesto is “people-centric” and if in government, will have a key focus on getting people living back where the economy runs strongest.

While unveiling the manifesto in Johannesburg this afternoon, Malema explained that the party will look to purchase property in Sandton.
This will then allow an integrated affordable housing development, right within one of the country’s economic hubs.
Malema went on to insist that the legacy of apartheid spatial planning can not be allowed to continue.
And as result, the country needs to move away from the perception of “rich” and “poor” areas.

“We are identifying a piece of land in Sandton to build RDP Houses. All the buildings in JHB City centre and hijacked ones. They will be refurbished and made into housing for our people. We want our buildings in Sunnyside, Kempton Park and Vaal.”

EFF promises a property wealth tax

Another standout part of the EFF manifesto is the threat to unveil a wealth tax on those who are “rich”.
Malema says that anybody who can afford to live in Sandton must be able to subsidise the poor.

“They are rich and they must subsidise the poor. Dali Mpofu will be the first to pay. He must pay for a poor person in the township and a village. Even myself, I stay in Sandton, I must pay the wealth tax to subside the poor. That is the only practical way we can share the wealth of the country.”

Julius Malema

While there were also promises to deal with corruption, eradicate all pit toilets and have EFF councillors available on call 24/7, Malema and co promised that all jobs created would be made available equally to men and women.

“When we give land, jobs… women must get 50%,” said Malema.
