Captain Siya Kolisi just wants to feed the needy on his birthday
In remembrance of that dark day, June 16 is now a public holiday, called Youth Day
On June 16, 1991 Siyamthanda 'Siya' Kolisi was born in Zwide, a township just outside Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.
He made his Springbok debut as a substitute against Scotland in 2013, before becoming the first black captain of the Springboks in 2018.
Kolisi went on to lead to the Boks to the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan, after they defeated England 32-12 in the final.

“My dream is to provide more opportunities for our youth to realise that whether they live in the suburbs or a township, they can be anyone they want to be.“ - @SiyaKolisi_Bear pic.twitter.com/NsYpWGKE0I
