Springbok captain Siya Kolisi, the first black Springbok captain in the history of South Africa, lead his team to bring home the Web Ellis Cup and became world champions thrashing England 32-12 in the final of the Rugby World Cup.
Former Home Affairs spokesperson Mayihlome Tshwete wrote a recent article saying the team cannot put the weight of South Africa's problems on its shoulders.
He talks to Bongani Bingwa about the significance of the Springbok win and elaborates on what he wrote.
I meant that Sport is not going to fix all of South Africa's socio-economic problems. To impose on these kids all the problems that we adults cannot fix is grossly unfair. My message to Kolisi was to play the sport as best as you can and he did that.— Mayihlome Tshwete, Former spokesperson - Home Affairs
