Bareng-Batho Kortjaas (BBK) – Multiple award winning Sunday Times soccer writer and revered columnist; SABC TV football analyst, opines:

“Any lifelong follower of South African football will attest that Molefi Mika is one of the fountains of knowledge about the game.

One of three Sowetan journalists to christen the South African senior national soccer team as Bafana Bafana, his unbreakable bond with the game has rendered him a slave to the sport. Under his easy-going but firm stewardship, the Sowetan was elevated to the status of the football bible by which many a follower of the sport swore.

It is that passion that drove him to dig deep and tell the tale of one of the most passionate, colourful, faithful – and sometimes controversial – band of supporters: Siwelele sa Masokolara.

It is for this reason that I enjoin you to let your fingers do the walking on these pages and get a slice of the vociferous green and white tsunami that is the power behind Phunya Sele Sele.

E hela yalo ngwana ou-mama!”


Robert “Qim Shelele” Marawa – Captivating and celebrated radio (Metro FM) and TV (SuperSport) talk show host comments thus:

“Insightful, gripping, thought-provoking, compelling and such a breath of fresh air.

The detail that this book goes into is a first of its kind in South African football history and has opened my eyes to intricate issues that I was never aware of. But it continues to chronicle the challenges and the successes of the Siwelele Family in the most gripping form of writing that I have ever been exposed to!

Understanding the culture of the boardroom coupled with the culture of the fans has seldom been intertwined so effortlessly but with the greatest effect imaginable.

Knowing the Terene is as captivating as following such a proud history of not only the incredible Celtic story but of football as a whole...from the A-Team, to the Bishop team, to the Celtic team it’s all captured here in what is my BEST football read to date!!”

Author, Molefi Mika was the Sowetan Sports Editor (1995-2009). He was a SA Sport Hall Of Fame 2008 Media Inductee. Molefi is also the author of Resilient Ntate Molemela. He strongly believes in the bonding power of monikers between fans and idols.
