Ngemuva kokuhlulwa okunzima ezandleni ze-Sundowns izolo (ngeSonto) lo mqeqeshi (u-Ayanda Dlamini) ubefuna abhaliswe ngokushesha kuleli sonto. Ukuzivikela kwethu akunabo abadlali abanesipiliyoni kanti uNgcongca bekufanele avale leso sikhala. Umqeqeshi ubemfuna emdlalweni wethu olandelayo kanti uhlelo bekuwukuqinisekisa ukuthi siyambhalisela kwiligi kuleli sonto,” kusho ongaphakathi oSuthwini ongathandanga ukuthi igama lakhe lishicilelwe.

“UAnele ubengumuntu wabantu. Wonke umuntu ubemthanda lapha (eGugulethu), ubehlala njalo ekhuluma ngokufukula umphakathi ngebhola.”
