Q and A with SSU Tembisa branch coordinator Mokgadi Masipa

SuperSport United Football Club website caught up with Matsatsantsa Supporters Tembisa branch coordinator Mokgadi Masipa regarding the COVID19 and how much they miss live football.

How is Tembisa and how do you guys cope with lockdown?

It is a very difficult time for us as Tembisa branch and since Tembisa is one of Hotspot place for Covid19.

Are the people on that end adhere to the lockdown rules?

Tembisa people don't adhere to Covid19 rules because of hunger or poverty. 

What is your take on the COVID19 and what advice would you give to fellow South Africans?

We all don't know about this disease since is new but we can fight it by adhering all the rules like washing our hands, sanitizing and staying at home. 

What do you do during this lockdown? Are you an essential worker? What are you busy with since we have moved from level4 to level3?

As an educator I'm working and please pray for all workers to be safe. 

How much do you miss live football?

Life for me without soccer is stressful because that's the only activity that I have been following to distress. I wish SAFA and PSL can come with a plan for players to play without us as supporters and not forgetting to put our players’ lives first.

How do you and other Matsatsantsa supporters keep in touch or keep your conversation going? What do you talk about mostly?

We keep on contact by WhatsApp and is not easy because some of them where saying is difficult for them since their parents can't afford food because they lost their jobs or can't work because of this pandemic.

What is your message to the football community regarding the COVID19 that has gripped the whole world?

The message that I can give to my football family is that please take a good care of yourself by adhering to the rules even if is not easy. Life comes first “ka Sepedi re re thibela malwetsi e phala kalafo.” (Prevention is better than cure)
