Controversy draws viewers, which pulls in more revenue… and as if the this Olympics needed anymore controversy.

A friend in Australia posted this letter on Facebook from a Burundian refugee. It left me scratching my head as to why it’s not a bigger story on our or any news channels.

To the untrained eye it seems like a simple issue. Maybe it is and we’ve just complicated it by our love for drama. Whatever it is, where will the Springboks be when race is no longer an issue?

Before one fixes a problem, first decipher the exact nature of that problem.

I titled this piece ‘The Lost Bafana’, with the hopes that the national football team can rediscover their place in the national identity, almost like the prodigal son, to return and awaken to its true potential.
