"Tshepiso Mofokeng is the general manager of AmaZulu football club. A few highlights of Tshepiso is that he is a gentleman of more than three decades of experience in corporate South Africa," Zungu said at the announcement event in Johannesburg on Tuesday.

"He joins AmaZulu with a BCom Honours degree, a MBL from Unisa as well as a LLB from the same institution. I'm very glad that Mr Mofokeng, of all the options and decisions he could have made, he bought into the vision of AmaZulu and decided to come on board."
