“As Orlando Pirates supporters, we heard from a radio station when Senzo Meyiwa’s mother was speaking about her chicken livestock business.

They asked her what she is struggling with and she said she doesn’t have money to feed her chickens,” said the Bucs supporter.

We decided that we are going to donate some money for her so that she will be able to continue with her business.

What is going to happen is that we are going to go to her house before the game starts so that we talk to her and we donate the money.

So, each and every supporter is welcome to come and make a donation for her.
