In moving images on their social media on Tuesday at Naturena, the Glamour Boys spoke in one voice for cries to end violence and were taking a knee ahead of their session to raise awareness over the #BlackLivesMatter movement that has come to the fore yet again following the brutal murder of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black American man killed during an arrest by a white police offer who knelt on his neck for nearly eight minutes in May.

Chiefs also condemned the gender based violence that’s gripped Mzansi and has been highlighted by President Cyril Ramaphosa recently.

 

“We stand for humanity and the dignity that all human beings are entitled to. We stand for Love & Peace and we take a stand against brutality & violence. We SAY NO to violence against women and children, we SAY NO to the abuse of power,” read a statement on the club’s Twitter page, with pictures of the rest of the squad taking a knee.

“...and we know the responsibility that comes with being in a position of leadership. We believe all of humanity has the right to live free of pain and suffering. Today and every day, we take a stand against RACISM! We Say NO and ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!”
