The football team of the Eletsa Secondary School near Brits recently won the Pan African u/16 Schools football tournament and will now represent South Africa at the continental tournament to take place in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) later this month.
Eletsa represented the North West province at the tournament. Madibeng mayor, Douglas Maimane congratulated the team in person on Monday and said the municipality was honoured for such an achievement to come from one of the local schools. “The boys have indeed represented us well as the municipality and the province of the North West at large. We want to take this time to wish them well as they will be representing the country in the DRC,” Maimane said.
