President Zuma To Visit Bafana
14 January 2013
With only five days left before the start of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, when Bafana Bafana play the tournament opener against Cape Verde at the National Stadium, South African President, Jacob Zuma, is expected to meet the team.
Zuma is anticipating a meeting with coach Gordon Igesund and his Bafana squad on Tuesday, where he will offer his support to the national side ahead of the African footballing extravaganza.
Bafana spokesperson, Matlhomola Morake, informed the Siya crew of the President’s meeting this morning, following South Africa’s training session at the Orlando Stadium.
He said they have not yet confirmed whether the President will meet the team at their training session or at the hotel they are staying at in Johannesburg, Monte Casino.
"Yes the country's President is expected to visit the team tomorrow (Tuesday), we haven't yet confirmed whether he will visit the team at training or at the hotel. But the president will be visiting the team," Morake said.
