The Chiefs chairman was the recipient of the prestigious accolade, which was given by the Discovery Sport Industry Awards.

Motaung played for Atlanta Chiefs in the United States in the 1960s.   

“The States was a spiritual awaking for my father, attending Dr Martin Luther King’s church changed his life. He too started having a dream fuelled by black consciousness, his love and passion for the game and yearning for his motherland South Africa. Deeply impressed with Atlanta Chiefs’ approach to the business of sport resonated well with my father and helped guide and grow his dream into a vision.  

“On his return back home, problems erupted at his South African club Orlando Pirates. After winning his father’s blessing, he forged his destiny as an icon of South African football by starting Kaizer XI, which soon became Kaizer Chiefs in 1970.”

“My father turned 70 in October last year and this year the Club celebrates 45 years of existence. His determination and vision has singlehandedly shaped Kaizer Chiefs into what it is today. We are now ranked fourth in Africa and first in South Africa, currently leading the PSL log.”  

“Kaizer Motaung is an iconic visionary, an inspired leader, an empowering Chairman, a demanding boss, an astute businessman, a solid role model, a true friend, a loving husband, an amazing father and a devoted grandfather.”

“He’s a man that inspires greatness but yet, he remains a truly humble man,” the Chiefs marketing director is quoted saying on the club’s official website.
