KWAZAKHELE community rugby development’s Wankie Ezee Fana Dlula has once again given an opportunity to less fortunate children from the dusty fields of KwaZakhele and New Brighton to play in the Woodridge Rugby Union Day on July 8.

According to Ezee Fana, the rugby day programme was the proper platform to erase the bad memories caused by the recent veld fires that gutted some of the buildings at Woodridge College.

Ezee Fana said, “The games will bring joy to the learners of Woodridge. Sport is a tool to unite people and it brings joy.”

Coaching clinics will be held on July 6 and 7 at Woodridge.

The schools that will play in the Woodridge Rugby Union Day are Seyisi Primary, Inkqubela Primary, Kayser Ngxwana Primary (all from KwaZakhele), Pendla Primary (from New Brighton), Thornhill Primary, Morningside High (from Linton Grange) and Ithembelihle High (from New Brighton) as well as Ezee Fana Development Teams.

Wankie Dlula runs the rugby development project at schools in New Brighton and KwaZakhele under the banner of the Ezee Fana Development Programme.

His passion for sport has saved many young persons from a life of drug abuse and crime.

Ezee dedicates most of his time in community youth sport development without remuneration.

Dlula also develops primary school girls in rugby and cricket.

Since his programme’s inception, Ezee Fana has produced many rugby players who have been selected to play on regional, provincial and national level.
