Project Description

REPORT: 

81 teams arrived on a clear winter day at Westville Old Boys Sport Club to compete in the #NOEXCUSE soccer event.

  • Father A Nation’s Zizipho explained to the teams the purpose of the day and led the men in the NOEXCUSE before they sang the national anthem.

  • Kick-off was a bit late, but the round robin and knockout games were played in great spirit, helped in no small way by a group of cheerleaders who performed throughout the day.

    WOMAN AND CHILD ABUSE IS UNACCEPTABLE. EVEN IF THEY HAVE WRONGED AND DONE SOMETHING INAPPROPRIATE, IT’S STILL NOT A CALL FOR THEM TO BE ABUSED.
