Honoured Dr Kaizer Motaung receives warm welcome at Naturena

After receiving an honorary doctorate from the University of Cape Town on Friday, Kaizer Chiefs chairman Dr. Kaizer Motaung received a warm welcome at Naturena.

The former footballer was honoured by the Mother City-based varsity last week for his work on uplifting the lives of many South Africans.

In a beautiful and historic ceremony also attended by the Economic Freedom Fighters’ leader Julius Malema, Motaung said he never expected to receive such a momentous honour.

Looking at the images trending on social media, Motaung is seen receiving a welcoming reception at the club’s training base and headquarters.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think of something like this. But life being what it is, when I look back and reflect on where I come from, I realise that maybe it’s because it’s a calling that came upon me to take this route,” Motaung said.

“But it taught me lessons in terms of life, that it is a journey and, like any other journey, it has its ups and downs and its own experiences. So it’s just proving one thing that life can be challenging but also very fruitful, depending on the determination that one puts in whatever they are doing in their life.”  

“Well, I think one has to look and think about it and see whether one deserves it. And also, whether the timing was correct for me to be able to accept some of those suggested honours. But obviously, there comes a time when you have to make decisions.

“So I nearly delayed my acceptance or my willingness to go ahead with other institutions and, of course, when this one came, I also had to reflect because I was in a dilemma because the other institutions that came before would want to question why I did not consider theirs.”

‘Chincha Guluva’ formed the Glamour Boys in 1970 and turned the Soweto giants into formidable sides in the African continent.

The 77-year-iold’s influence emanates from the fact that he played for Atlanta Chiefs in the United States of America between 1960 and 1970 for Atlanta Chiefs before coming back home and forming the club.
