Following a decision by Thanda chairman, Pierre Delvaux, that he would be open to selling the club and citing financial constraints as his reason for that decision, AmaZulu came knocking with the intention of buying Amabhubesi’s PSL status.

The proposed sale has been met with displeasure from the City of uMhlathuze, where Thanda is currently based. The City is opposing the idea of selling the club, saying that the people of Richards Bay and soccer lovers from the area have been supportive of the team throughout the many years that the club has campaigned in the NFD.

“We have been working hard to see Thanda climbing to the top leagues and fully supporting the club with our facilities and financially investing (in) the team knowing that when they play at the top level, our investment will be paid back and our people especially soccer lovers and youth will benefit, little did we know that we are assisting people who have no interest in investing in the City and in the club anymore,” City Mayor Cllr Mdu Mhlongo said in a statement.

Mhlongo further appealed to Dr Irvin Khoza and the PSL to dismiss the transaction between Thanda and AmaZulu. 

As reported by the Siya crew this morning (Thursday), the PSL’s executive committee is expected to meet today to discuss the proposed sale of Thanda’s PSL franchise to AmaZulu, who are currently in the NFD.

Thanda is expected to make around R60 million with the sale of their newly acquired PSL status.
