Angry Hugo Broos fires back at Mamelodi Sundowns coach!

Bafana Bafana head coach Hugo Broos has lashed out at Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rhulani Mokwena for recent remarks he made concerning the way the national team is being run.

Mokwena was left rather irritated with the fact that Hugo Broos originally called Mamelodi Sundowns out for scheduling Thabiso Kutumela’s COVID-19 vaccine during an international week.

According to Mokwena, the Bafana Bafana coach is overworking players and the SAFA medical staff are failing in their duty to inform clubs on injuries picked up with the national team.

“I will not comment about the remarks by Mr Rhulani Mokwena, I’m very surprised by his comments, you don’t do that in the media, certainly when it comes to a colleague,” Hugo Broos told the ‘PSLNow’ television show.

“Again, if Mr Mokwena is frustrated, he can take the phone and call me and ask some explanations but you don’t do it via the media. This is not appropriate I think when you are colleagues. If there is something that bothers him, please phone me and I will explain to him what happens.

“I’m really surprised that he said he wasn’t informed about the injury of Mothobi Mvala. We sent the whole medical file to the head of medical stuff at Mamelodi Sundowns, so he knows everything.”

What Rhulani Mokwena said regarding Hugo Broos’ Bafana Bafana?

“It’s a very, very difficult situation with Bafana. We can’t even communicate with the medical department. We don’t know the itinerary of Bafana, we don’t know the training programme of Bafana.” Rhulani Mokwena told members of the media as quoted by Kick-off.

“We don’t get training feedback in relation to the load, there’s no data. So the cooperation with Bafana frustrates us a little bit. Because as Mamelodi Sundowns we are the first to always over the years shown willingness to support the nation.

“To support the cause and release as many personnel including support structures from Sundowns going to represent Bafana Bafana. In relation to the country’s cause, Mamelodi Sundowns has always put Bafana in certain moments in fact ahead of its own cause,”

After the show, you can join the group in their “spooky barn” to meet the stallions and spoil them with their very own trick or treat!

  • Snacks will be available for purchase before and after the performance


According to the Fédération Equestre Internationale, it was the need for a particularly strong and brave warhorse that laid the foundations for the breeding programme that culminated in the Lipizzaner of today.

“A mélange of Spanish, Italian and Arab-Oriental horses led to what is considered the first “man-made” breed originating in around 1562. Courage, strength and agility remain notable traits of the Lipizzaner horse almost 500 years later.”

In 1948 the Lipizzaners made it to SA’s shores and in 1969 Major George Iwanowski built the first-ever indoor school in South Africa which remains the home of the SA Lipizzaner Centre today. 

Two years later the first regular Sunday morning performance of the Lipizzaners was opened by the then Chief of The Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Colonel Handler.

Today the tradition of breeding and high school training continues in South Africa with a stud farm in the Gauteng Province and at the original equestrian centre.
