Ex-DA leader, Mmusi Maimane resurfaced on the political circuit recently and this time, he took the opportunity to congratulate the Springboks team for the momentous Rugby World Cup victory the morning after their return to home soil.

Springboks get hero’s welcome back to South Africa

After a mix up with the team’s travel schedules, the Boks finally made it back to South Africa, on Tuesday evening. The boys got the hero’s welcome they deserved, with thousands of ecstatic fans raving at their sight at the OR Tambo International Airport.

The euphoria they felt at the OR Tambo Airport, on Tuesday, is far from over. The boys will be allowed to rest on Wednesday. Time spent with family and friends will be vital because, from Thursday, it will be pandemonium once again.

The tour of the Webb Ellis trophy will kick off on Thursday and these are the dates for which the trophy will be paraded in these cities:

  • Thursday, 7 November: Pretoria, Johannesburg and Soweto
  • Friday, 8 November: Durban
  • Saturday, 9 November: East London
  • Sunday, 10 November: Port Elizabeth
  • Monday, 11 November: Cape Town

Mmusi Maimane: We win together, we prosper together

Mmusi Maimane, who has been on a political hiatus since his dramatic exit from the official opposition, resurfaced to welcome the Boks home.

Mmusi Maimane has been championing the national rugby team throughout the World Cup. He was even bold enough to call on President Cyril Ramaphosa to make Monday, 4 November, a public holiday in celebration of the Boks victory.

Mmusi Maimane, on Wednesday, posted pictures of himself with the squad and captioned it with his usual rhetoric about unity and working together to build a “beautiful and diverse nation”.

At this time, Mmusi Maimane has not entertained questions on his political future. It appears that, at least for now, he is comfortable affecting change on the sidelines.
