Who was Good Enough Sithole?
He was a loyal supporter of Orlando Pirates and was famous for such quotes as “I like it for de Pirates”. A superfan of the Pirates Goodenough clarifies the rumors about “joining Chiefs” I won’t ever go away.
According to November 2019 article, Goodenough Sithole, an ardent Orlando Pirates fan, has denied leaving the team for its rival Kaizer Chiefs, who won the Soweto Derby at FNB Stadium on Saturday.
After a Photoshopped image of him sporting an Amakhosi T-shirt was published on Twitter this week, jokes about him turning his back on the Buccaneers spread on social media.
The tweet captioned the image, which was shared with sportscaster Robert Marawa, “Goodenough has crossed the floor. Now, he prefers it for the chiefs.
Marawa shared the article as soon as she saw it and inquired as to its veracity. To set the record straight, he asked Goodenough to his show. All of this is new to me. “I don’t know this,” Goodenough admitted. “I’ll never be a Chiefs fan.
Goodenough dropped by our #MSW Studios to distance himself from "photoshopped pics" linking him to his alleged support of @KaizerChiefs saying he remains firmly rooted and a staunch @orlandopirates supporter!! pic.twitter.com/GNbtg4gh58

Even its fans stopped donning the team’s shirt once they defeated the Pirates twice; previously, they wore it as pajamas or even as a floor mat. He claimed that because the Pirates did not win the cup, their victory was not particularly significant. He said that someone “drew a spitting image of myself” when asked if he knew the man wearing the Kaizer Chiefs jersey. He said, “We must contact the artist who created that drawing.”
