Mama Joy Explains Her Reasons for Leaving the Buccaneers

We meet to part, and despite the fact that it is the toughest thing to say, people usually say their goodbyes as they are parting ways, even though there is virtually nothing good in saying goodbyes. There comes a time in life when people make the most difficult decisions to separate from things they have loved for years, from people they have been with for many years for various reasons, they sit and contemplate their decisions and finally make a decision even though it hurts and is a difficult one to make, just as the number one Orlando Pirates female supporter Mama Joy Chauke did.

Mama July, who has supported The Buccaneers for 20 years, has revealed that she would be departing Pirates on Thursday to join DStv Premiership newcomers Royal AM, who are enjoying a thrilling season on their debut, having already beaten Kaizer Chiefs by a large margin.

Chauke described her reasons for leaving a team she had supported for 20 years to Newsroom Africa, saying it was one of the most hardest decisions she had to make in her whole life, but she did it and she is not going back; she would be supporting Shawn Mkhize's side.

"I'm sorry to inform you, South Africans, that I am leaving Orlando Pirates." "As difficult as it is, I am leaving the Orlando Pirates and heading to Royal AM; there will be no more crossing of hands from me, but from now on, I will be saying Her Majesty," she added, motioning with her hand.

Chauke also stated that she is joining the KwaZulu-Natal-based outfit because it is owned by a passionate woman who loves football with her heart and soul. She stated that what Mkhize went through when she had to fight her way into the Premiership showed her that she loves soccer and would do anything to ensure that she achieved her dreams.

"I chose to join Royal AM so that I could assist MaMkhize, you know Ma'Mkhize?" You remember when she was at the GladAfrica Championship and wanted to come to the PSL, but on the final day they said no, Sekhukhune has qualified and you will play the play-offs, and it was difficult for me to see another lady suffer because you could see what she was going through.

"Ma'Mkhize is a soccer fan, and witnessing her go through so much grief struck me profoundly as a woman. Then I heard she purchased Bloemfontein Celtic, and I was like, you! "This woman was adamant on playing in the PSL, and she has finally realized her goal," she added.

The Xitsonga-speaking lady went on to say that she was a huge Pirates fan, claiming that the team was practically in her DNa. She even went so far as to paint her house in Pirates colors after consulting with her daughter-in-law and the entire family.

She has only missed one Orlando Pirates game in 20 years, in 2012, because to a family bereavement; since then, she has been present at every Pirates game until the Coronavirus epidemic, when fans were no longer permitted to enter stadiums.
