Breaking: Chiefs Suspend Bobby!

Kaizer Chiefs has confirmed the club took a decision this week to suspend football manager Bobby Motaung for breaking lockdown rules.

“As part of our policies and continuous process of monitoring the public conduct of our members, players, and staff, Kaizer Chiefs has decided to summarily suspend football manager Bobby Motaung,” read a statement on the Amakhosi website on Tuesday afternoon following social media calls for the club to make a public comment.

“This is a result of a number of videos circulating on social media wherein the football manager is seen taking part in festivities during what looks like the lockdown period. The club has been involved in the internal processes of investigating his conduct, which led to the decision to suspend him.”

It was back in mid-March when President Cyril Ramaphosa unannounced a nationwide lockdown, which prohibited social visits and subsequently – an alcohol ban, due to the Coronavirus global situation that has halted all life.

“With the Covid-19 pandemic, our processes have been intensified and stringent measures have been put in place to ensure the club and its members play a role in the curbing of the spread of the virus and flattening the curve,” the statement read further.

“Subsequently, the club would like to confirm that Bobby Motaung is suspended with immediate effect up to and including 31 August 2020. He is not allowed to accompany the team to any training session or scheduled matches. Even though he has tested negative on three occasions for Covid-19 during the club’s mandatory tests, he is ordered to remain home and self-quarantine during this time. This is in line with the rules and regulations of the club according to the protocols that we have put in place. The club reaffirms its stance to all stakeholders of our commitment to play an exemplary role to assist in the fight against the spread of the pandemic.”
