The event will be held as part of the Embassy’s participation in youth development programmes to uplift the youth of South Africa, as well as part of the International Day of Solidarity With The People of Palestine commemorations, and encourages solidarity through sport!

This event significantly echoes the unwavering support for a free Palestine that South African democracy’s founding president Nelson Mandela lamented.

Today, nine years since his passing, Nelson Mandela remains a symbol of hope for a better future for Palestinians - a future that is void of racism, interrogation, abuse and division.
