The burden of being a KwaTsaDuza resident

As if it was not disturbing enough to learn about incidents of child kidnappings and the infamous Bokoharam hooligans in Tsakane and Kwa-Thema respectively, in recent weeks, now comes the ignominy of having one of our own football teams, Kwa-Thema-based XI Experience, being hit for six at home, in their ABC Motsepe League swansong.

The club, who were in their first season in the third-tier league, went into Saturday’s match against Soweto-based Dube Continental at the Brakpan Stadium having already been relegated, and the 6-0 loss they suffered means they finish the 2018/2019 season with a whopping 22 losses in the 30 games played. Needless to say the finished rock bottom on the log, as they should, and have gone back to where they came from, the Ekurhuleni SAB League.

They go down having managed just two wins the entire season, and having had six draws, with a goal difference of -40! In case you don’t understand the significance of that, it means they conceded 40 more goals than they scored throughout the season. That is surely not a team worthy of playing at such a high level, where they would be competing for a place in the playoffs, to try gain promotion into the National First Division. Neither are pushovers of that make worthy of representing our township in a league that’s as competitive as the Motsepe League.

Over and above that, they refuse to speak to the media, which is supposed to carry their messages to their supporters, whose support they enjoy at every home match. They don’t even have a communications officer to suggest that they are professional.
Kwa-Thema has had a horrible experience with this team in the ABC Motsepe League, 11 times over, and KwaTsaDuza Times says good riddance
