Nageng Primary School produces stars!

The 2015 MWEB City of Johannesburg Regional Championships which were held at the Old Edwardian Society in Lower Houghton, in Johannesburg on the 17th of October 2015 saw exciting developments in the game of Morabaraba.

sure the big names  were present, but on a more rewarding note, so were a bevy of younger players from Nageng Primary School.

The older players immediately discounted the young players from Vosloorus, and boy, were they wrong to do so.

The youngsters immediately demonstrated their skill with Boitumelo immediately taking control of the women's section.

Such was her skill that Boitumelo dominated the women's section from te start and finally finished up in first place earning herself Regional Colours, as well as a place in the 2016 National Team Trials at which the 2016 Protea Team shall be selected.

Young Sicelo Mabatha immediately challenged the heavy weights in the championship, namely Simphiwe Maphumulo (1 x Junior World champion, and 2 x Senior World Champion) and Johannes Makau (Mpumulanga Provincial Champion). His challenge, although unsuccessful left him in third place overall which earned him the respect and admiration of both Simphiwe and Johannes.

A great deal is expected from these two stars in the future.
