High level clouds. Mild.
Kyle Turnbull of Witbank made news when he defeated Protea team member Abubakar Ebrahim Akhalwaya at the 2013 Mpumulanga provincial championships to become South Africa's youngest provincial champion for the FIFA title.
The MSSA is proud to announce that it shall host the 2015 MWEB On-line Dota 2 and CounterStrike:GO (CS:GO) Championship, which will offer any South African player the opportunity to qualify for the National Team Trials from home.
