The American car manufacturer unveiled the Kaizer Chiefs stalwart as it brand ambassador.

This deal comes just after few days since Ford signed a sponsorship deal with Soweto giants Orlando Pirates.

Ford seems to be working overtime to reposition itself in the South African market after following a string of bad publicity about the explosions of Ford Kuga SUVs last year.
