Posted: 1 April 2014 Time: 05:39 pm
Sivutsa Stars have confirmed that the club has been bought out by millionaire couple Shauwn and S'bu Mpisane, who are relocating the club to Durban.
Despite last month denying to KickOff.com that the club would be sold, it seems money talks, and the deal will be concluded at the end of the season.
The following Sivutsa Stars press release was sent out earlier today:
LIFE ZONE TO BE PAMPERED BY THE DURBAN POWER COUPLE, AFTER SIVUTSA STARS FC MATCH WITH CAPETOWN FC.
Few days ago in an event of ostentation and prestige, Durban power couple Sbu and Shauwn Mpisane gave away 7 fully furnished houses, each came with an en-suite master bedroom... Tears float to the inheritors when they were handed the keys of the fitted spacious houses fitted with wardrobes, plasma TVs, a kitchen with fitted cupboards ,four plates stoves to mention but a few. To what we call the act of generosity Mpisane also handed out wheelchairs and promised to give one the schools a face lift.
One of the subjects that are very close to their heart is the welfare of the children/young people hence they have more than 50 students in different universities across the county whom they are paying bursaries for, but today they are in Cape Town to give back to this community. Their mission is to leave a mark to each and every province they visit and touch lives every day.
Football is a beautiful game and the Mpisane’s has chosen to change lives through it. They have recently bought Sivutsa Stars FC which was previously owned by Zweli Khoza; this club officially belongs to the Zikhulise Group and will be relocating to kzn (Durban) at the end of the season. Sivutsa Fc rose from Vodacom league to the National first division... A formal launch will be held in Durban soon to welcome this team and they will officially change their name.
Well, the reason this power couple is in Cape Town is nothing but to change lives, now we invite you, to join them doing what they know best, touching lives of the underprivileged, changing communities in the spirit Ubuntu and developing youth. On the 2nd of April tomorrow Sivutsa Stars will go head to head with Cape Town FC at 15h00 at NNK Rugby Stadium in Parow.
On the match day more than 50 kids from Life Zone Organisation will be treated by the Mpisane’s to what we call “life time experience” Life Zone organisation was formed by Jeremy Wyngaard, a former Hellenic and Santos football player. Life Zone is anon-profit organizations aims to establish strategic partnerships with key individuals and clubs, in order to attain their goals of creating an environment of tangible hope for young high-risk children.
It’s a celebration of soccer and community in Cape Town this week. Attendees will have a chance to enjoy a nice match and some fine food and drinks while they meet their favorite players. The event should not only be fun but also allow the Mpisane family to help some of the deserving people while at it.
“We want to give back through soccer now, and also help deserving young people to games so they can shaft their passion into the sport they love," said S'bu.
“We hope to leave a mark in this community of Cape Town, touch and also change lives, having the community come together and putting a smile to the young ones is something that we are proud of as the Mpisane’s ”shared Shauwn.
We invite you to be a witness as we continue changing lives for better……
THE JOURNEY BEGINS but now THE JOURNEY CONTINUES.
