We Should Honour Our Legends While They Are Still Alive

Good day, Supporters Club

This week, we honour one of Mzansi's finest legends, Ephraim "Jomo" Sono. "Bra J" has done a lot for football in this country, so much that it pains me to know that not much is said or done about it. Like Bra J, the late Ace Ntsoelengoe was honoured in the United States with a place in their Soccer Hall of Fame, something he never got in his own country. This brings me to the question: Why are our legends not getting the recognition they deserve?

Bra J has done it all. He has produced a lot of great players, including the likes of the late Sizwe Motaung, Philemon Masinga, Mark Fish and Helman Mkhalele, to name just a few. If one takes a closer look at the Orlando Pirates team that took Africa by storm and won the CAF Champions League in 1995, you'll realise many of those players graduated from Bra J's Jomo Cosmos.

He is one of the best, if not the best, talent spotters in the country. For example, Benjani Mwaruwari went on to become a household name in the English Premier League after he was spotted at Jomo Cosmos.

I say hail Bra J, the man deserves some praise.

Leave it to Beaver!
