Kaunda Congratulates Amazulu, Golden Arrows and Sharks

EThekwini Municipality Mayor, Councillor Mxolisi Kaunda has congratulated the three sporting teams based in Durban - AmaZulu, Golden Arrows and The Sharks, for ensuring that they win their matches against strong opposition this past weekend.

The three teams all won their crucial matches and brought joy to the local fans. AmaZulu secured a much-needed win which moved them from the bottom of the log. Usuthu were in a do-or- die encounter against Polokwane City and this win brings hope for success as they fight to remain in the top flight of the South African football.

“We would like to call on our people from eThekwini and KwaZulu-Natal to continue support the local teams on game days. It is true that the support we show to the players on the field goes a long way. The players are encouraged to perform as they understand that they carry the hopes and dreams of millions of their fans, young and old.” 

Meanwhile, The Sharks will need support as they attempt to win the Super Rugby Competition for the first time while Golden Arrows continue to battle for a top 8 spot in the league table. 

Kaunda said that supporting the local teams is critical for their long-term financial sustainability.
