Newly appointed Minister of Sports, Arts, and Culture, Gayton McKenzie, has sparked a social media frenzy by terminating all travel benefits for super fans.

Minister Gayton McKenzie cancels funded super fans trips

McKenzie took to his X account to declare the cancellation of all funded trips for super fans. He stated that the Ministry of Sports would redirect these funds to support struggling athletes and artists.

“I have stopped all trips for super fans. We have athletes and artists who are struggling to raise money to attend sporting events and exhibitions. How do we justify paying for fans? We shall no longer be paying for these trips and will use that money where it’s needed the most.”

Social Media Comments

  • @Lasto04: No trips for Mama Joy. The hunger she’s about to experience… but we will be there.
  • @StHonorable: Things are getting ugly for Mama Joy. Time for free trips and sleeping in 5-star hotels is over. Sir Gayton is cleaning his department.
  • @MSFC: Mama Joy was so happy, not knowing that’s the end of her free meals.
  • @mr_shimmy: Mama Joy was starting to be arrogant. I don’t feel sorry for her. I feel sorry for Botha. I hope PSL/DSTV can sponsor him to attend soccer matches.
  • @b3l_Air: SERIOUSLY!?!?!?! If we NEVER see that ANC Cadre Mama Joy again, I would be SO happy!!!!!
  • @sewelankoana: I never thought I’d clap hands for you, but today is that day. This nonsense of luxury trips for super fans and certain celebrities must end. Many schools in rural areas need sports facilities. Kids play soccer in dusty playgrounds with no soccer poles while some fans/celebrities use that money for flights, luxury accommodation, and champagne. Well done, sir, on this decision. We support it 100%. You are on the right track.
