Bafana Bafana will finally have a golden star showcased on the jersey for winning the 1996 African Nations Cup.

Since Bafana's sole continental triumph on home soil 18 years ago, questions have been asked as to why there is no star on the national jersey, with countries like Ghana commemorating their success in the competition in such a fashion.

Safa communications director Dominic Chimhavi told Kick Off magazine that there are plans to address this.

“Yes, we will have the star when we qualify for [the 2015 Afcon in] Morocco,” confirms Chimhavi.

“This matter has been discussed and decided.”

Orlando Pirates are the only topflight club in South Africa that has a star on their jersey for winning the 1995 CAF Champions Cup [now Champions League].
