‘Our Boks 2015’ - Public dialogue on transformation in sports

As the South Africa’s national Rugby Team, Springboks, are gearing themselves up for the 2015 Rugby World Cup, there has been discussions about quota and transformation plans in the Springboks.

The discussions are looking at addressing whether sport in South Africa has transformed sufficiently and why it’s not being reflected in the composition of our national teams.

Wednesday night saw the first of three public dialogues under the banner “Our Boks 2015” which took place at Trafalgar High School in Cape Town.

The panel included former Springbok hooker Dale Santon; former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers; Max Fudzani – special adviser to Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula; Trafalgar High School principal Nadeem Hendricks and others.

CapeTalk’s Kieno Kammies spoke to Judge Siraj Desai, Western Cape High Court Judge:

It was more of a discussion than a debate. Various people made their inputs based on their own observation of the state of sports at this stage in South African history

Judge Siraj Desai, Western Cape High Court Judge

It’s not simply in rugby that the problem lies, we as a nation still have imbalances of the past that hover around us

Judge Siraj Desai, Western Cape High Court Judge
