Katleho Maboe, the popular presenter, is showing his unwavering support for the South African national football team, Bafana Bafana, ahead of their “must-win” Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) match on Sunday.
The team is set to face off against Namibia in a crucial Group E match, with their hopes of advancing to the last 16 hanging in the balance.
Maboe took to Twitter to express his enthusiasm and encouragement for the squad. In one of his tweets, he posted a GIF of an anxious person jumping up and down, accompanied by the words, “Oh my nhliziyo – can Bafana Bafana just do the things today, PLEASE!” His tweets serve as a rallying cry for the team, urging them to give their all and secure a victory.

While a draw or even a defeat in this match will not eliminate Bafana Bafana from contention, it will certainly make their path to the next round more challenging. Following their 2-0 loss to Mali on Tuesday, a win against Namibia is desperately needed to boost their chances of progressing in the tournament.
The South African squad, led by coach Stuart Baxter, will undoubtedly be feeling the pressure as they step onto the field on Sunday. With the support of fans like Katleho Maboe and many others, Bafana Bafana can draw strength and motivation to deliver a stellar performance.
As the match approaches, the nation holds its breath, hoping for a triumphant display from the team. The stakes are high, but with determination and skill, Bafana Bafana has the potential to secure a much-needed victory and keep their Afcon dreams alive.
Let’s unite in cheering for our national team and trust that they will rise to the occasion. Go Bafana Bafana!
