South Africans ready to fly SA flag high in London for charity
As the excitement grows around Sunday's London Marathon, Xolani Gwala met South Africans running for different charities.
He spoke to UK Country, head for Brand South Africa, Pumela Salela, and Sibahle Magadla, who are locals participating in the marathon.
Salela will hold the South African flag up high while running to support education empowerment in Africa.
Magadla is running a full marathon for Voluntary Services Overseas, an international development charity that fights poverty.
Xolani travelled with Jane Kabinga, winner of the coveted Virgin Atlantic London Marathon prize which was given away in February.
Kabinga is running the London Marathon for her daughter Yolanda, who is physically disabled, and other disabled children of South Africa.
I am so ready. I have been training since January. The pressure is on but I just wanna get on with it.Jane Kabinga, runner and winner of the Virgin Atlantic London Marathon prize
