Mr Nicholas Madzuhe.
The relationship between Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila’s marketing manager, Mr Livhuwani Nicholas Madzuhe, and the club is something of the past.
In an interview, Madzuhe revealed that he had left the Tshakhuma side for the newly promoted Gauteng-based side, JDR Stars. He stated that his appointment as the new marketing manager for JDR Stars came into effect on 1 August.
Madzuhe further stated that his aim was to make JDR Stars one of the highly supported National First Division clubs in the country. He added that the plan was to change JDR Stars into a very big brand, just like he did with Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM). According to him, he will be launching six supporters’ branches around Gauteng Province this weekend.
“More branches will be launched in Limpopo in the coming weeks,” he said. Asked why he had left the Tshakhuma side, Madzuhe said that he wanted to be close to his family, which was based in Pretoria.
According to him, no bad blood exists between him and the management of TTM. JDR Stars, together with Steenburg United, gained promotion to the NFD after their success in the ABC Motsepe League promotional playoffs that were staged in Cape Town two months ago.
Madzuhe joined TTM when Vhadau Vha Damani bought the NFD franchise from Milano United two years ago. He did the unexpected when he launched 40 supporters’ branches in Limpopo and Gauteng within a space of three months, making TTM the biggest NFD club in terms of support.
The chairman of TTM, Mr Humbulani Mphephu, confirmed Madzuhe’s departure, saying they would remember him for his hard work. He wished Madzuhe everything of the best in his future endeavours. The owner of JDR Stars, Mr Nditsheni Nemasisi, confirmed Mr Madzuhe’s appointment, saying they were happy to be associated with a man such as Madzuhe.
