Kaizer Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung has congratulated Bidvest Wits for winning the Absa Premiership title.

“Congratulations to the Clever Boys. Well done. They fought a good fight from the beginning, leading to this historic achievement,” Motaung told the club’s official website.

“This is indeed a momentous occasion in the history of the league and the club itself. It is a remarkable moment because Wits never won the league since their formation in 1921.

“Compliments to their chairman, Brian Joffe, and his management team for leading the Clever Boys to this immense glory. Coach Gavin Hunt and his technical team have done a marvelous job throughout the season to form Wits into a force to be reckoned with.”

Motaung reserved a special praise for Wits coach Gavin Hunt and winger Daine Klate.

“I also wish to congratulate Gavin for scooping his fourth league title. That’s a fantastic achievement. I also shouldn’t forget to mention Daine Klate for collecting his sixth league championship medal.

“We will receive Wits at our last game of the 2016/2017 season. We will be gracious hosts and honour the occasion with dignity.”

Chiefs, who are currently fifth on log, will host the new champions at FNB Stadium on Saturday, May 27.
