Kaizer Chiefs believe they were subjected to mistreatment while on CAF Champions League duty in Angola after being subjected to strict health protocols.
Chiefs made history by booking a place in the group stages of the continental competition after defeating Angolan side Primeiro de Agosto 1-0 in Luanda on Tuesday.
Despite this the club revealed that even though they had undergone Covid-19 testing at OR Tambo international Airport before their departure they were again subjected to another round of testing on arrival in Angola.
We are back home Khosi nation after 3 tough days in Angola. The ministry of health in Angola made it an unpleasant trip but our troops were resilient, remained resolute and did not lose focus.— Kaizer Chiefs (@KaizerChiefs) January 6, 2021
A huge word of gratitude goes to Primeiro de Agosto, especially their manager Untonesa Sampaio, who went over and above the call of duty to ensure that he helped as much as they could. Our Angolan opponents were professional and we are grateful for that. Obrigado Agosto! ??— Kaizer Chiefs (@KaizerChiefs) January 6, 2021
Thank you to South Africa’s ambassador to Angola, Mr OE Monareng and his staff for their special visit even though they were barred from engaging or meeting us by the ministry of health and the police in Angola.— Kaizer Chiefs (@KaizerChiefs) January 6, 2021
Chiefs next face Maritzburg United and former head coach Ernst Middendorp in a league encounter at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
