True Royalty: Chiefs Defender Reveals He Is From A Royal Family

His leadership has always been exemplary whether it is for the junior national teams or for Kaizer Chiefs, and now this Amakhosi defender has revealed he hails from a royal family.

What’s the story?

Ramahlwe Mphahlele or ‘Ramaross’ as he is affectionately known, is the embodiment of leadership. Always one to lead from the front, the 31-year-old has taken leadership roles throughout his career.

But perhaps the one less spoken about is the one in his family liniage where he hails from the village of Ga-Mphahlele in Limpopo.

“I’m from Ga-Mphahlele and my surname is Mphahlele. Yes, my family used to be part of the royalty back then. When my grandfather was still alive the whole culture and tradition was taken seriously,” Rama told Vodacom’s Ringa Nathi.

Putting his crown aside

Rama further revealed that his family have decided to step away from the Chieftaincy due to conflict within the village.

“Nowadays we realized that this is where we are as a family, there were lot of conflict within the village and we basically decided no let other people run with it. There are other people in that village that are also Mphahleles that are doing the job and leading the whole pack.

It is a little bit complicated because it comes from back in the day but currently we are not involved in the Chieftaincy,” he added.

Rama recently got down and dirty in style:
