Ex-Real Kings owner buys new team

GladAfrica Championship

Former Real Kings owner Bongani Ngidi has not completely left the beautiful game.

Ngidi has acquired the status of KwaZulu-Natal ABC Motsepe League side Natal Rich Boys and renamed it Real Kings.

The GladAfrica Championship franchise that competed last season is now owned by 19-year-old Kwaito star Andile Mpisane, son of businesswoman and reality star Shauwn Mkhize.

'MaMkhize' has renamed the club Royal AM FC.

According to former Kings chief executive officer Philani Majola, they are ones who are now in charge of the amateur outfit.

"We now have a team in the ABC Motsepe League, actually it's always been there as a development team," Majola tells KickOff.com.

"But now it's no longer Natal Rich Boys, its name has been changed to Real Kings. So the name Real Kings is still around in football."

Majola says the reason they decided to sell their National First Division status was purely financial.

"It's business. It's a business decision," he adds. "But yes, we are still in football."
