R1 000 For Amakhosi Heartbreak

South Africans are still picking up their jaws following the shock result of this weekend – Cape Town City 1-0 Kaizer Chiefs. Such is the nature of a club like Chiefs that the stadium was packed out for the affair. Furthermore, there were a number of fans who made the cross-country trip from Johannesburg to Cape Town, only to see the mighty Amakhosi go down in flames.

Supporters Club caught up with one of the valuable SLSC branch members, Justice Skhalazo, who drove down with a whole lot of supporters to witness the night of misery.

Beaver Nazo: Hey Skhalo, how are you doing?

Justice Skhalazo: Hey Beaver, I'm ok man, I'm surviving.

BN: I believe you guys drove all the way from Tembisa to Cape Town for the game against Cape Town City. How was the trip?

Skhalazo: Yes, we did, the trip coming down was very good, we left Tembisa at around 10.00pm on Thursday and arrived in Cape Town at about 1.00pm on Friday. We were warmly welcomed by the Gugulethu branch.

BN: How much is the trip from Tembisa to the Mother City?

Skhalazo: We paid R1 000 per person; that's a return fare.

BN: OK, and what are your thoughts on the game?

Skhalazo: The game was disappointing. We travelled almost 1 500km for the game, to support our team. I'm heartbroken, but football was the winner at the end of the day because the stadium was packed.

BN: Tell me, what is the feeling among the supporters towards the team after this loss?

Skhalazo: I feel sorry for our coach, Steve Komphela. Everyone is looking at him, while the players are also part of the loss. I wish everybody can understand that this is a team and we should take the loss as a team. I personally cannot blame him for the loss.

BN: Lastly Skhalo, how was the trip back to Tembisa... it must have been a long one?

Skhalazo: No, it was OK, and I have to commend the people of Cape Town. Those people really love football. They always pack the stadium whenever Chiefs plays there. Another good thing was that on our way to and from Cape Town, there were no accidents on the road.

BN: Alright, thanks a lot for chatting to us, and best of luck for the team's next game.

Skhalazo: Thank you, man, I really appreciate it.

Do you think it is worth travelling to a game, even if your team loses?
