'Now let’s maintain the consistency'- Shivambu praises Kaizer Chiefs revival
EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu joined the Amakhosi nation in celebrating Kaizer Chiefs' win over Swallows over the weekend, calling for the Soweto giants to maintain consistency.
Chiefs were in a destructive mode and crushed struggling Swallows 3-1 in their Soweto derby match in Dobsonville on Sunday.
Keagan Dolly fired in his sixth league goal in the 42nd minute to give Amakhosi the lead, with Khama Billiat doubling it a few minutes later.
Chiefs came out fighting in the second half and Billiat's 53rd minute goal sealed the game.
Swallows captain Lebogang Mokoena pulled one back in the 64th, but Swallows never looked like staging a dramatic comeback.
The win saw Chiefs shoot to second place on the DStv Premiership standings, eight points behind Mamelodi Sundowns and one point ahead of Royal AM. They have played one game more than both teams around them.

The club responded to a string of poor results- a run of two win in 30 matches stretching from last season- by firing its entire coaching team.
On social media, many predicted this would be the start of something special for the Glamour Boys, and urged the team to build momentum.
Shivambu congratulated Amakhosi for separating “wheat from chaff”.
“Now let’s maintain the consistency, he urged.
