Rulani Mokwena took a leaf out of his mentor Pitso Mosimane’s book when he slammed Kaizer Chiefs for their behaviour during the Soweto derby over the weekend.
Mokwena might be right about what happened on the field on Saturday but deliberately turned a blind eye on what is happening at Pirates where two of his players in Mthokozisi Dube and Happy Jele were sent off in one week, while Tshegofatso Mabasa escaped a red card after almost breaking Lindokuhle Mbatha’s leg.
I always say the league table doesn’t lie, and Kaizer Chiefs have been the most consistent team so far this season.

In the Cape Town City v Kaizer Chiefs Telkom Knockout game, this time City were not dominant from the start.

A win against opposition of Mali’s calibre for Bafana Bafana in the Nelson Mandela Challenge on Sunday can only give them a lot of confidence.
It is a real pity that Ernst Middendorp makes it so hard for everyone to like him.
Kaizer Chiefs supporters had mixed emotions this past weekend.
In my not-so-many years of being glued into the beautiful game, it has been a while since I last saw a South African born striker like Tshegofatso Mabasa.
I am going to hand over most of my editorial this week to a letter I received from Ari Soldatos, the South African Football Association’s Referee Appointments chairperson, about last week’s editorial, where I was scathing about the standard of refereeing in South Africa.
I hope that Tau’s success will inspire a lot of aspiring footballers – and again, the boy did not only focus on his football, he is also a graduate having juggled between football and education.
The Citizen intern, Sinesipho Schrieber, has a gripe with how coaches like Ernst Middendorp are restrictive in their approach.
Let me first say I have nothing personal against Owen Da Gama and his Highlands Park team. In fact, it would be hard for me to hide my admiration for the man’s work even if I tried.
