The power of one unified voice made up of many different supporters can never be underestimated. The supporters watch their teams week in and week out and are as qualified as anyone to decide who they would like to see playing in their clubs colours. This time around, Kaizer Chiefs supporters have taken matters into their own hands.
Social media can be a very powerful tool, and this time the Amakhosi faithful have pooled together to push a campaign forward. A Facebook campaing under the hash-tag stich4Chiefs has been circulating the web.
The campaign aims to influence the management of Naturena to sign a former development player and Black Leopards midfielder Karabo Tshepe. Many supporters feel that this player could be the difference for the Glamour Boys in the upcoming season.
It is a beautiful plea for management to act. Many are saying things like “please answer our prayers", “The boy is ready,” and “he will win us many trophies.”
It seems the supporters have spoken, they want to have the man they call Stich’O Lucho in the Gold and Black next season.
If they get enough support, the Motaung’s may just be forced to answer their call for action.
Have you watched Karabo Tshepe play before? Do you think he can make the grade at Chiefs?
