Blow your vuvuzelas for Banyana Banyana

Saturday, December 1, 2018

The Minister in the Presidency Responsible for Women, Bathabile Dlamini, has called on all South Africans to wear their national team colours on Saturday in support of Banyana Banyana’s African Women’s Cup of Nations finale this evening.

The Minister called on the nation to blow their vuvuzelas loud for the National Team.

The spar for the Cup between Banyana Banyana and the Nigerian Women’s National Team will take place at the Accra Sports Stadium in Ghana from 6pm.

“On the day of the game, South Africa should come to a standstill. As a nation we have previously and continuously gone to great lengths to support Bafana Bafana. We should extend the same consciousness to Banyana Banyana,” said the Minister.

Dlamini also called on the South African Football Association to ensure there are safe public viewing places for the African Women’s Cup of Nations Finale.

“Just as SAFA has previously arranged public viewing places for the men’s national team, the same attitude should be extended to the women’s national team,” said the Minister, adding that she will also be advocating for the increase in payment and sponsorships for the women’s national team. –
