Legendary football commentator Baba Mthethwa is set to host the 'Ho Thaata' Legacy Football Tournament in Kagiso from the 16th to the 23rd of December.
The soccer tournament will raise awareness around the scourge of violence against women and children.
At least 29 teams have registered so far to compete for the grand prize of R50,000, with R 10,000 offered to the team that comes third.
A portion of the funds raised as part of the tournament will go towards a series of community initiatives.

Talking about the idea around the legacy programme, Mthethwa had this to say:
In no time I might have to leave what I am doing, so: What do I leave behind? So I thought let me start a legacy programme whereby I can come into communities and see how I can help out.— Baba Mthethwa, Football commentator
The idea here is not to make money out of the tournament. It will launch myself into the tournament sphere of football... the rest of the money will go to other things that we do, like yesterday part of the money went to Atlholang primary school.— Baba Mthethwa, Football commentator
