south africans celebrate bok win

The atmosphere in South Africa is electric! The Springboks WON the semi-final against Wales! SA is through to the FINAL of the Rugby World Cup on Saturday. And not since Nelson Mandela died has the country again felt so united in joy and hope. As Madiba once said: “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does… Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.” These videos prove it all…

Similar scenes were seen (and HEARD!) around the country.
