ACDP congratulates Springboks on their Rugby World Cup victory

Oct 28, 2023

The African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) congratulates the Springboks on their hard-fought 12-11 victory in the Rugby World Cup Final against a tough and determined All Blacks team.

Throughout the tournament, the Springboks displayed a number of heroic plays and their journey to the top was certainly not an easy one. They managed to recover from defeat early in the tournament, knocked out the tournament hosts (France), and pulled back a last-minute victory against a tricky England side in the Semi-Final match.

Amabokoboko showcased their incredible team-spirit, grit and determination which carried them across the finish line to a well-deserved victory in Paris.

The ACDP commends the Springbok team and their management and staff, for their tremendous efforts in bringing home the Webb Ellis trophy for the fourth time, and for proving yet again that they are the best team in International Rugby.

More importantly, we want to thank Amabokoboko for inspiring our youth, uniting South African’s from all walks of life, and for making the nation proud.
