BANYANA COACH SET FOR SPECIAL NATIONAL RECOGNITION
Senior Women’s National team coach Desiree Ellis is one of the few nominated local and foreign nationals who will be awarded National Orders at an investiture ceremony to be held on 28 April 2023.
National Orders are the highest awards that the country bestows on its citizens and eminent foreign nationals who have contributed towards the advancement of democracy and have made a significant impact on improving the lives of South Africans.
The National Orders also recognise the contributions made by individuals toward building a non-racial, non-sexist, democratic, and prosperous South Africa as envisaged in the country’s Constitution.
President Ramaphosa will bestow on deserving recipients the Order of Mendi for Bravery, the Order of Ikhamanga, the Order of the Baobab, the Order of Luthuli, the Order of Mapungubwe, and the Order of the Companions of O.R. Tambo.
The Order Of Ikhamanga recognises South African citizens who have excelled in the fields of arts, culture, literature, music, journalism, and sport and coach Ellis has been bestowed this special recognition for her excellent contribution to football, a male-dominated sport. Her sustained excellence provides encouragement to women to excel in their respective fields of endeavour.
Banyana Banyana won the AWCON to become African champions last year after beating hosts Morocco 2-1 and in the process qualified for the second successive FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand this coming July.
Ellis was also voted CAF’s Women Coach of the Year for the third successive year.
