lockdown challenge

Springbok captain Siya Kolisi is a real man. No, we’re not talking about his bulging muscles and penchant for crushing Englishmen.

Springbok captain Siya Kolisi is one of the manliest men in the world.

Now, the beloved Springbok captain has challenged other men to help their partners cook and clean while lockdown drags on.

“Starting a challenge for men! Tag me in your house cleaning or cooking posts and you could win a signed rugby T-shirt,” said Kolisi.

Kieno Kammies interviewed Barbara Friedman about the day’s trending stories, including this one about Kolisi’s challenge to South African men.
