Football tournament is all about unity

03 June 2013

UCT's second annual Africa Cup of Nations football tournament to celebrate Africa Month at UCT took place on 11 May. Four teams, each representing a geographical region in Africa, toiled and tackled in the sun to stake their claim to a glimmering golden trophy. Getting stuck into the shirt-swopping and dancing after the games was an enthusiastic deputy vice-chancellor Professor Thandabantu Nhlapo. "I am very pleased with this, because it shows exactly the kind of spirit we are trying to create with Africa Month," Nhlapo said at the prize-giving. West Africa won the final 2-0, but the united festivities and camaraderie after the final whistle showed that everybody felt like a winner.
