With sadness, I never thought I would be speaking about my brother at this moment. To be honest, Cliff was an inspiration to the whole family in all spectrums. He always encouraged me to further my studies especially after he returned from the UK. He was always a ‘smooth’ character and boasted a lot about his qualifications. But one thing that was more important to him was football. When we were young, he would even go to the extent of paying me to do his chores at the cattle post, so he could focus on football.
With him, this PR job was more of a talent than anything else. This was a God-given talent. The man perfected his role very well. He is one of the few football administrators who were well learned; he knew the football rules and regulations by heart. He was well informed, and most importantly, was loyal to football and Mochudi Centre Chiefs. He is the reason why this team had reached certain levels in the past.
Mogomotsi had an impact in the development of the game locally. He understood that for football to grow you need the input of all stakeholders; from the fans, administrators, players and sponsors. His impact has been recognised countrywide. As the football family we had a lion’s share of his life, than his very own family.
