Sundowns Talk Beyonce And Obama Ahead Of Shell Helix Cup

Mamelodi Sundowns’ media official, Thulani Thuswa has spoken about the CSI programs that the club is involved in, including bringing the likes of Barrack Obama and Beyonce to South Africa.

Sundowns will lock horns with Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on July 21, in the inaugural Shell Helix Cup clash.

Speaking to the media, Sundowns’ media coordinator, Thuswa explained that they would like to open to gates for free on the day but are unable to, adding that in contrast, Masandawana have been involved in many CSI programs and are eager to eradicate poverty by 2030.

“If we could, we would open the gates for free, you know how we do. But of course, we are also partnering with Shell, we going to have a lot of CSI programmes that we are doing with them apart from us, you know at Sundowns being a CSI driven club. we don’t really rely on selling jerseys to empower people, we give bursaries,” Thuswa said. 

“Just two weeks ago we gave about 5 million rands to traditional leaders in Tshwane and we continue to do so as you know Vina Maphosa, our president Mr Patrice Motsepe has given half of his family’s wealth to the community. As part of those programs, that is why we are bringing Beyoncé once again ladies and gentlemen, it’s more than just Beyonce, Usher, Oprah and Barack Obama and whatever is made from that, we donate it to the Nelson Mandela Foundation. But also, all (these) artists are picking a struggling, are picking problems we have in the country and we want to eradicate poverty by the year 2030,” he added.
