Siyathemba Tyatha from Nqeleni, just outside Mthatha in the Eastern Cape, is now a Durban CBD resident. He was the most important guest at the match between Kaizer Chiefs and Baroka FC, which was staged at Amakhosi’s home away from home, the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
All this happened because Tyatha entered the Kaizer Chiefs and KC Mobile competition known as the ‘KCCouch’. One lucky winner, who can be joined by three friends, is selected and given the VIP treatment by the club. A special seat is placed on the east side of the pitch for the Amakhosi faithful to enjoy the game.
Nyatha, who was selected from thousands of entrants was joined by three friends, Siya Mtshali, Bonginkosi Ndovela and Siyabonga Twala. They all sat on the KC Couch for the duration of the match and could not stop smiling as they were seen by millions of viewers, who watched the game on TV.
“I normally work as a security guard at the stadium when there are matches,” Nyatha reacts, “but when I saw the competition, I decided to try my luck and could not believe it when I received the call informing me that I had won.”
“Sitting so close to the action and cheering the boys on was surreal for all of us – added to the unbelievable experience was the VIP treatment we received during halftime in the suites. I will cherish this moment for as long as I live,” he added.
“Shaking hands with Lorenzo Gordinho, Siphiwe Tshabala and Tsepo Masilela was another special moment for us and it felt good to be the envy of so many people in the country,” he concluded.
