The Durban City hall was packed with durbanites from all walks of life, from as early as 8 am to witness this historical moment.
Cheers and chants grew louder as the Springbok bus arrived filled with South Africa’s chiseled champions. The people’s Captain Siya Kolisi rose from the top of the bus, holding up the highly anticipated Web Ellis cup trophy and the crowd went wild.
A historical and momentous moment indeed. The champions were greeted by the City’s Mayor, Councillor Mxolisi Kaunda, and KwaZulu-Natal’s premier Sihle Zikalala along with MEC for Sport and Recreation, Hlengiwe Mavimbela.
Durban was the third province that the Springboks visited for their victory tour.
The victory parade began early in the morning at Umhlanga then to KwaMashu and shortly after, headed to the Durban CBD. The tour continues in other provinces and South Africa continues to celebrate its victory.
