Tweeps Weigh In On Shwaun Mkhize and Andile Publicly Rewarding Players With Hard Cash. It was a given that with the arrival of Royal AM, at the Premier League, things were going to get interesting. So far we have been served motorcades of the most expensive cars, and money has been shown off left, right and centre.
After losing in court to be crowned the GladAfrica Championships, Mam’Mkhize contemplated another plan to be in the PSL. The flamboyant entrepreneur took many by surprise when she bought Premier Division status of Bloemfontein Celtic for a whooping R50m. This saw the team which was based in Bloemfontein now change their name to Royal AM and relocate to KwaZulu-Natal.
So far the team has been doing very well in the premier league, and people are paying attention. They had the country talking a few weeks ago when they beat Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs 4-1. This past Sunday, Royal AM beat provincial rivals Maritzburg United 2-1 at Chatsworth stadium. This was their fourth consecutive win, which is something worth a celebration.
To celebrate, Mam’Mkhize and her son Andile Mpisane came into the field holding hard cash to reward the players. The two were dancing, followed by an entourage as they came to give their players some incentives. Some people were not impressed by all this saying it is unprofessional and treating the players like some kind of beggars. Some also said, it wasn’t noble but was all about show off.
So there was no voice of reason to tell Mamkhize that this is unprofessional. pic.twitter.com/xqkgkwO6qq

Mamkhize and Royal AM ke di bhari tsa last number. I told ya'll money can't buy you class. Imagine being their payroll Accountant, I'll resign immediately. Those PAYE recons are going to be very interesting. Years from now it will be a "conspiracy" when SARS drags her.

We are really tweeting amongst kids, who say “what’s wrong with MaMkhize handing out bonuses like that to her players”
If I was her Accountant I’d consider jumping ship, PAYE? How do you disrespect professional players like that like you giving Rochelle money for hubbly at groove

Even some players weren't charmed by what Mamkhize,Andile Mpisane and their groupies were doing because they could see it's degrading and downright embarrassing..

Others however argued that there is nothing wrong with what the mother and son did, as it has been done by many people in power positions. They gave examples of political parties as well as well of celebs who always splash out cash to their supporters and fans.
ANC gives people T-shirts and busy campaigning in poor neighborhoods you keep quiet.
But MamKhize gives her players money for delivering a win and suddenly you guys have PhD's in ethical behaviors??
