Mamelodi Sundowns Talks Charity Work Ahead Of The Shell Helix Cup

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 12, 2018 04:20 PM

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.

To pay 1or 2 players big salary is what killing kaizer chiefs because Billiat is not going to play alone there.what about ather players that will supply Billiat to score football its a team sport not one man team and you can not compare sundowns and chiefs in terms of salary coz at chiefs there is only 4 players that pay good mone others are paying peanuts there we know that but at sundowns about 20 players pay almost the same big money not oly four so respect.do'nt talk football just because you suport chiefs,Pirates and Sundowns use knowledge because you gonna fight for nothing we arw talking football here so we do'nt emotiona people.

A fresh and energised Mamelodi Sundowns returns to action on Tuesday with the aim of putting themselves in a better position in their group in the Caf Champions League. Like they have done since 2016, Sundowns are once again the first South African team to return to competitive football after a short break as they were the last to go into recess. The Brazilians will fly the country’s flag in Lome on Tuesday against AS Togo-Port in the Champions League. Hlompho Kekana and his charges leave for Togo on Thursday night in search of their first win having drawn their first two matches against Wydad Casablanca and Horoya. “We had a break. It was good for us to be away from football a little bit. We are back now,” Kekana said. “It’s back to business. We want try and start with a good run by winning the match in Togo so that we are in a good space in the group. A win will give us five points and we will be second in the group.” The Brazilians are in the group stage of the Champions League for a third time in a row. They are the first South African club to achieve that feat. But since they conquered the continent in 2016, reaching the group stage is no longer an achievement with the club driven by the desire to win the Champions League again to add a second star on top of their badge. “We are aware of the standards that we have set for ourselves,” Kekana said. “Doing well in the Champions League is non-negotiable. We know that we are carrying a lot of responsibility as players to try and do well and put the club where it needs to be. We have shown in the past that we are capable of winning trophies. We have to maintain that and make sure that we continue doing well for the club.”
