As a result, Mkhize who amassed her huge and constantly flaunted wealth from the KwaZulu-Natal government to build RDP houses, has reportedly put together a whopping R50 million to purchase Celtic from Max Tshabalala.

Although she is incredibly rich, the deal to acquire Phunya Sele Sele would be make even easier following the sale of Royal AM to Venda-based businessman Masala Lawrence Mulaudzi, who has already confirmed the deal and resurrected Tshakhuma Tsha Madzhivhandila whom he sold earlier this year.

Celtic has the fourth biggest fanbase in South Africa, if they are to relocate that means those millions of fans would have lost a club they supported for years with all of their hearts.
Some are suggesting that the PSL develop rules to govern such sales by using models similar to what is done in England, where whoever comes in to buy a club will not be able to change its name or relocate them.
