Creating a better Mzansi through sport and development

 

I was privileged to spend Women’s Day in Soweto.

No - I did not attend any women’s gatherings, listened to no speeches about how women should uplift themselves, or claim more power for themselves. I spend most of the day next to the football field, watching Diepkloof and Freedom Park playing in a mini football tournament.  We ate lunch together, and then walked to a nearby Tavern and shared a beer.

To be accepted by these wonderful young men, to be allowed by them to attend the day - as an complete outsider, to be allowed to listen to their discussions of the games, yes also what they think about life in general and surely also girls, was the best way to be honored as a women. 

Thanks guys for making my day very special.  I look forward to strengthening our friendships in the future.

Baie dankie vir alle dinge jy het het gedoen vir ons in Soweto. Die kos was baie leker. Jy is die regte example van hoe Zuid Afrikaaners moet saam bly. Wit of swart.
