Creating a better Mzansi through sport and development

THE WAY I MET DOC WAS QUITE UNIQUE FOR ME. IN THE YEAR OF 2007 I WAS PLAYING SOCCER FOR A TEAM CALLED ROVERS F/C AND DURING THOSE DAYS I HEARD ABOUT THIS GUY WHO IS COMING FROM GP WITH DOCTOR BAYENI WHO IS GOING TO HOST A TOURNAMENT IN SOMERSET EAST. I REMEMBER ONE NIGHT WHILE WE WERE TOGETHER AS A TEAM MY TEAMMATES ASKED BAYENI IF THEY CAN MEET WITH THIS GUY I DID NOT CATCH IT AT THAT MOMENT THAT THEY WANTED TO MEET DOC BUT AS YOU GUYS KNOW THAT MEETING NEVER TOOK PLACE B'COS DOC WAS AND IS STILL A BUSY GUY. I WENT TO THE POLICE TRAINING AND WE DID NOT MEET. IN THE YEAR 2013 WHILE I WAS BUSY WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOMERSET EAST HE CAME AGAIN. I WAS ON DUTY THAT DAY WHEN ONE OF MY BOYS CAME TO ME AND INFORMED ME ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT THAT DOC WAS GOING TO HOST. I ASKED HIM WHO IS DOC AND HE LOOKED AT ME AS IF TO SAY "ARE YOU SERIOUS COACH" WELL I WAS THEN TAKEN TO HIM BY ONE OF MY COLLEAGUE WHO WAS WITH WITH ME IN THE VAN TO HIS PLACE IN FIFTH AVENUE OLD LOCATION. HE WAS VERY SURPRISED THAT I DID NOT KNOW DOC. WHEN WE ARRIVED AT HIS PLACE I THINK DOC WAS VERY SCARED THAT WE WERE THERE WITH THE POLICE VAN AND IN FULL UNIFORM. WE INTRODUCED OURSELVES AND I ASKED HIM ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT MY BOY WAS TALKING ABOUT. I CAN STILL REMEMBER HIS WORDS BUT ITS FOR THE KIDS HE SAID. FROM THAT DAY WE NEVER DEPARTED FROM EACH OTHER TILL NOW. I REMEMBER GOING TO CRADOCK TO GO AND BUY THE TROPHIES AND MEDALS FOR THE TOURNAMENT AND DOC BUMPED A POLICE VEHICLE ON THAT DAY. YAH I HAD A VERY NICE MEETING WITH DOC IN THE CAR GOING BACK TO SOMERSET EAST. THE TOURNAMENT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS AND I SAW THAT DOC IS A GUY WHO LOVED CHILDREN AND SPORT. GOD BLESS THIS CHAMPION.
