Minister to Boks: Moer hulle

2011-09-01 19:20

Johannesburg – The pressure and excitement was palpable as thousands of South Africans bid farewell to the defending Rugby World Cup champions in Sandton on Thursday.

Thousands of fans lined the streets to urge the Springboks to "bring it back home". Nelson Mandela Square went Bok-beserk earlier in the day, reminiscent of the 2010 Soccer World Cup parade in Sandton last year.

People donned their rugby jerseys, painted their faces green and gold, blew vuvuzelas and waved the South African flag, ahead of the team's departure for New Zealand on Thursday evening, to defend its 2007 title.

If they succeed, the Springboks would be the only team in Rugby World Cup history to win the Webb Ellis Cup three times.

"Viva ama-bokke-bokke, viva!" Captain John Smith shouted at the crowd from the stage in Nelson Mandela Square.

"This is humbling," he said when the team made its way to the stage, ahead of the singing of the national anthem.

A number of artists performed throughout the afternoon and evening. The Idols top 10 were in the VIP section, along with singer-songwriter Danny K. Springbok regalia was on sale, and ushers handed out pamphlets with the lyrics to "Shosholoza".

Also spotted was television figure Gladys Gaily, better known as "The First Lady" or "Mama Ajax", who became famous for her over-the-top regalia during last year's Soccer World Cup.

"Just yesterday was 2010, and now it’s 2011... It's time for the Springboks. They must moer (thrash) them," she said.

"I know I'm normally soccer crazy, but today I'm here in support of the Boks."

Springbok coach Pieter De Villiers described the event as the "most humble highlight" of his life.

"For eight weeks, we will carry 50 million people in our hearts," he told the crowd.

Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula said he stood in front of the Springboks with pride, honour and excellence.

"Go to New Zealand and make us proud. We stand here, black and white, red, yellow and purple... As a rainbow nation.

"Moer hulle! Bliksem hulle, die bokke sal dans!"

A group of schoolboys from Jeppe Preparatory were lucky enough to get to the front of the stage.

"We are here to see our bokke! Go bokke!" shouted 11-year-old Reece Bloemstein.

Twelve-year-old Uyiosa Eweka, and Lusanda Nkosi, 13, could not wait to see local band Freshlyground perform later.

The team signed autographs along West Street, before taking the Gautrain to OR Tambo International airport.

      Could never be a supporter other than a Springbok supporter!!!!!

      Green is thicker than blood!!!! MOER hulle .... GO BOKKE!!!!

      Dwarslat - 2011-09-01 21:13

      Lekker man, dit is lekker om die gees te sien!!

      Tina - 2011-09-01 23:28

      @ TheMagician: Jy klink so mal soos n haas, but wtf. Amandla!!

      sam - 2011-09-02 04:11

      @bliksembende - di minister het nie letterlik bedoel m@*r hulle of om geweld te gebruik nie. hyt net bedoel hy hoop die bokken gee die aner gas en wen. moenie so vinnig op jou perdjie spring nie. ai man. relax. en geniet die world cup en as jy nie KAN of WIL nie, niemand forseer jou om dit te kyk nie en niemand forseer jou om hierie artikels op news24 te lees nie. dit smaak my dis nie goed vi jou gesondheid nie, so liefs vermy dit.

      Whoosa - 2011-09-02 06:12

      Bliksem, jys n absolute tool. Verkrampde mo3r wat heel dag by die huis sit en alles en almal van die nuwe regering en sy mense haat. Ja versker hulle maak foute en dis maar eintlik n totale boggerop, maar in hierdie geval is jy verkeerd. Die minister het dit in n goeie sin bedoel, en daarvoor haal ek my hoed af. Hy kon da gestaan en moan het oor kwotas ens, sou jy dit verkies het???? Ek dink jy moet onmiddelik jou DSTV koneksie kanseleer (sou jy een he) en eerder nie die wc kyk nie. Die bokke soek nie mense soos jy se ondersteuning nie. So vat n lepel boet, en eet my h0l!

      slg - 2011-09-02 06:32

      Ja Minister, moer hulle indeed, after I've tied your one arm behind your back and clubbed your right knee with my racist political appointments and selections. No chance. See you guys back in Sandton mid-way through September.

      GoBull - 2011-09-02 08:26

      Hi Bliksembende, Swak voorbeeld se MOER. Kom bietjie by en vang gees as jy weer iets vang. JY is die swak voorbeeld en die een met swak selfbeeld. Kom by man!!!!

  • Greg - 2011-09-01 19:30

    Ha ha! Classic! Go bokke! You guys CAN do it! Bring it back home!

  • PMG - 2011-09-01 19:34

    Great speech from Fikile,how the youth league has fallen with Juju in charge - BTW,where was the youth league?

      maverix - 2011-09-01 19:39

      they were outnumbered, so prudently stayed away. most sensible thing they've ever done

      Netherlander - 2011-09-02 08:10

      Youth League were at the Julius Malema Memorial Service in Lootfreely House......SNIFFING into BAFANANA BAFANANA TISSUES!!!

  • Craig44 - 2011-09-01 19:37

    That's how you unite a Nation. Go Bokke!!!!!! Moer Hulle!!!!!

  • SAFFA-CAT - 2011-09-01 19:41

    This send off reminded me of why I love this country. For a few hours crime, strikes, negativity and 'hate' were shoved out of the bus by passion, joy and unity. The faces of the Bok players when they sang the National anthem said it all.....tears, pride, joy and unadulterated excitement. Fikile, Thank-you! Your words and the passion behind them was exactly what the team and nation needed. How I pity all the 'haters', pessimists and Bok bashers this evening - imagine watching that and not feeling part of it - tragic. (On da udder hand Darren, I say f##k 'em - may they choke in their misery!!!!) Go my beloved Boks - godspeed and good luck! (PSSS: anyone else see how happy/comfy and united the Bok squad look? Anyone else see the "eye of the tiger" glint in the eyes....)

      BLOODY AGENT - 2011-09-01 19:54

      SAFFA,I Have to agree,This reminds me lot of the 1995 world cup euphoria,The 2007 was different for me,like everybody accepted defeat before we started and then we won the cup.This time apart from the few negative citizens,french supporter,Kok and BCC ,I sense the same unity as in 1995

      Mr. B - 2011-09-01 19:54

      they look awesome, hungry and psyched - awesome to hear the humility in their tweets and see "the goosebumps in their tummies" (apologies Odwa, that was a classic chirp)

      chappy - 2011-09-01 19:58

      Good comment. We all make a choice to live with hate and misery, or to share in the joy and pride with our fellow countrymen and rather ignore the naysayers. Misery is contagious, but so is happiness! Go bokke, make us proud!!!! - 2011-09-01 20:41

      Proud to be a South African and proud to be a Bok Supporter!

      Priester - 2011-09-01 20:43

      I have watched the farewell in Darfur, Sudan with some of my colleagues from Russia, Ukraine, Kosovo and numerous other countries. They all agreed that this farewell was special. Some of them are now "converted" Bok supporters. Indeed sport can and will unite! Thanks Fikile for a great speech! - 2011-09-01 20:59

      BRILLIANTLY SAID SAFFA-CAT!!!! It was WONDERFUL! to see all the support and the absolute look of pride on each and every Springbok's face! May our Bokke do us all proud!! :)

      GraemeBB - 2011-09-01 21:41

      Agreed SAFFA! How great it is to be a "BOK"! I love them, and life without the BOKKE just wont be the same. I wish we had more days like this in this country. Cant we "MOER" Wales already?

      SirPlod - 2011-09-02 01:06

      I'm overseas so didn't see them, but I'm happy to hear you mention the glint in their eyes! In 2007, I had a feeling about the Boks because of the way they carried themselves before and during the tournament and I even wrote an article about it - they had a calm confidence (not arrogance!) about them - sometimes you just know they have it in them. When they came on to the field for a test match against France in Cape Town in 2010, they had the same look about them - When the team ran on to the field, I said to a friend - watch, smashing coming up, look at John Smit's face... 42-17 later, I was right. I haven't seen it since then - but I'm hoping the same "air" is around them now...

      Roadster Babe - 2011-09-02 06:24

      SAFFA-CAT - you are a typical South African - no wonder this country is in the hole its in. The Minister's comments just show how idiotic Bok supporters are. Any team that doesn't select purely on merit gets what it deserves - there are going to be a lot miserable idiots in October.

      BLOODY AGENT - 2011-09-02 07:07

      Roadster babe,what are you on about?,nothing wrong with having fighting spirit and loyalty to your team,SAFFA was 100% correct in her comment,,,,Go Bokke

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-09-02 07:42

      @Roadster babe: who in that squad is not there on merit Miss Misery? Name them......and then name the players you would have in their place..... I am not blind to the problems in our country - but I CHOOSE to embrace what is good and right as well. If I didn't, I would probably be like you....a miserable, sad, opinionated and sorry excuse for a South African. In greeting, I say the following, "Misery loves company" - I am sure you will find it.

      Sh@rks Fever - 2011-09-02 08:37

      @ Roadster Babe. Yes SAFFA is a typical South African. a Person dedicated and loyal to her country, and with our Sport being a big part of our culture we SAFFA's unite and we feel and share the great feelings inside us. I don't know you and can't raise an opinion on you, but can see you are a very negative person. There are two types of people we would gladly pay to get rid of in this country. Our criminals and negative people. These two contribute nothing to the future of this country. So make the choice? No disrespect to you but you need to make the best of whatever situation you in. Life is short and can only be lived once. I am so glad to see how we united behind the boks yesterday. Remarkble how we are as a nation. - 2011-09-02 08:41 are obviously NOT! a Bok supporter so why bother commenting at all????!? Try as you might [and others like you!], you are NOT going to "rain on this parade"! By the way, are you so steeped in your negativity that you can't see that it's EXACTLY the people like us [200% Springbok supporters!] that this country needs???!!! We have such lousy politics, racism, crime etc [that we are all perfectly aware of] but why should that detract from being PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICAN and being 200% behind our men in Green and Gold!!!?!

      GraemeBB - 2011-09-02 12:10

      @SAFFA - hahaha, this Roadster Babe knows nothing about rugby. I await her profound answer. @Roadster Babe - I think it is people like you that are the problem in this country. Still waiting for that answer.............

  • lebohomp - 2011-09-01 20:05

    Go bokke, especially viktor mayfield we love u & polokwane is behind U.

  • Karoobloed - 2011-09-01 20:22

    Mr. Fikile Mbalula is an oustanding motivator! Minister Mbalula please visit the Bok dressing room prior to the crucial games and inspire them to "moer" the opposition (just remind Bakkies not to take it too literally).

  • Wernher - 2011-09-01 20:24

    In times of crises, Rugby has united this country before and can do so again in the name of sportsmanship, camaraderie and respect for one another and not that which we have experienced of late mostly thanks to amapoepolema. I think this could not have come at a sooner, and greater time. It's exactly what this nation needs to focus our attention and energy away from the negative and reach out to the positive.

      gabasa - 2011-09-01 20:42

      Werner for what its worth boet it will take a lot more than rugby to inite SA when rubby is done everyone back to themselves again.I just wish we can use that passion to stand up to all the crap thats happening in SA.

      remco mons - 2011-09-02 07:31

      I agree with you: Malema should have used the R 30 million he and his canodies caused in damages the other day to bring busses ful of children of rural and underprivileged areas to Sandton to see the boks off...

  • Met - 2011-09-01 20:27

    I find it difficult to believe that people can be so naive and be taken in so easily

      Dilla - 2011-09-01 20:44

      And I imagine you Met in your infinite wisdom will bring us crashing back to your sad reality. Save it mate, here in this country, we make the impossible happen, watch this space. I pity you, it certainly can't be much fun being you, drenched in pessimism 24/7

      Maarten - 2011-09-01 21:06

      @Dilla, do you know who Fikile Mbalula is? No, I did not think so. He is the man yor Comrade Juliass would put on the throne. He is in fact the force behind your dear Comrade Malema and the ANCYL. So at leasst get some facts before

      Met - 2011-09-02 05:41

      If you had based your comments on fact, I would be moved. I am in a situation where I see and study the realities and do not base my comments on emotions, but fact. When you are gathering around the dinner table and someone comes running in shouting that the master bedroom is on fire, you strike me as someone who would respond by telling that person to sit down and enjoy the meal and not to be so negative. Its good to be positive as long as it is based on reality. But if you are comfortable with your head in the sand, dream on!

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-09-02 07:47

      @Maarten - I know Fikile was the ANCYL leader. I know he is a firebrand, and the ANCYL's choice for Secretary-general of the ANC. I know he has militant tendencies, and that Malema is his crony - BUT BUT BUT: I can also appreciate the GOOD that the man has brought to the Sport portfolio, and his obvious passion and pride in our national teams. Whilst I might not agree with his political ideology, I can share in his passion for the country and it's national teams. Let's just enjoy the moment and unite based on our sporting passion and pride, and NOT on our political ideologies.

      Met - 2011-09-02 08:18

      I see you have a few buddies with their tails up and heads in the sand. I hope that you are comfortable in that position" I see no evil, I say no evil and I do no evil" should be your motto. The bliss of ignorance. Sadly, when the reality dawns, the shock is so much greater. It reminds me of the white Zimbabweans in 1979 who thought that Mugabe had no chance. In 1995 that country was presented to SA as an example- 6 yrs later, farmers were being kicked off their farms and people fleeing for their lives. Smell the roses!!!

      HagenDan - 2011-09-02 11:15

      Nobody's stopping you from leaving. Start swimming for Australia. Cheers.

      RL - 2011-09-02 14:30

      @met and then theres the worlds financial crisis, riots in london, killing sprees in norway, politicians in sex scandals (everywhere), starvation and famine, civil war in libiya, cases of molestation happening for decades in eastern europe, even women being arrested for driving in the middle east ... its not south africa its the world boet. so you carry on with your realistic fact finding and pointing out the obvious, we will do our bit to bring people together because at the end of the day change is change ... even if it starts on the rugby field

  • GJB - 2011-09-01 20:34

    "If they succeed, the Springboks would be the only team in Rugby World Cup history to win the Webb Ellis Cup three times." My apologies, where did I lost out on the score?

      Inkwe - 2011-09-02 09:36

      RIIIIGHT, let's learn you to count 1995 - This is ONE 2007 - This is TWO 2011 - If succesfull, will be THREE Congratulations, you just learnt to count to three. In 2015 we can perhaps work on counting to FOUR - You'd be right up there with a pre-schooler then. For the moment though, we can move on to some English and correct the "where did I Iost out on the score?" issues. You learn in primary school that if you use "did" in a sentence, the following verb will be in the present tense so your sentence should have read "where did I LOSE out on the score?"

  • gatvol4corru - 2011-09-01 20:50

    I like this minister! Viva la France!!:) Hier kom die bokke! Hier kom groot kak!

      Met - 2011-09-02 05:52

      Then there should be absolutely no reason why you should not like Malema.Ideologically, they are identical hence my comment on why I believe people are naive and taken in. Scary, but the truth.

      Met - 2011-09-02 08:27

      This is an excellent example of DENIAL.I present an absolute undisputed political FACT and get thumbs down. Those are the people who would give me a thumbs down if I said there was a Sun in the sky

      Is dit nou omdat hy in afrikaans kan vloek? Swak maniere.

      Sportzmad - 2011-09-02 09:27

      @Met-Just enjoy the moment & stop being such a drag, just for the moment. You are just bringing every one down when we have a flicker of something enjoyable, however short it may be.

  • John Fourie - 2011-09-01 20:51

    It is very nice to see the Government behind the Boks for the first time since 1995 before a tournament instead of acting like they have been behind them all the time once we won the bloody thing.

  • Dilla - 2011-09-01 20:57

    Dare I say that thus far, Fikile Mbalula at the helm of the sports ministry is a breath of fresh air from the bland and sometimes disinterested and detached men who are his predecessors. He seems to be more in tune with his portfolio and often displays a bit of zest and energy which is befitting of someone in charge of sport. Suddenly Ngconde Balfour and Makhenkesi Stofile seem like figments of a bad dream

      Priester - 2011-09-01 21:05

      @Dilla Well said! I agree with you whole heartedly.

      Maarten - 2011-09-01 21:09

      @dilla, tell us that again next time you are crying about the demise of the Springbok emblem. You really have no idea who he is do you? JFGI

      ShanMo - 2011-09-02 08:28

      @ Maarten - I think we are all pretty educated - we know how to use a computer, and write comments. We also know who Fikile is - or more, who he was. He was the ANCYL leader..... he is now a cabinet minister. The youth grow up - we all did. We moderated our ideas, our ideologies, and our fire to more measured, realistic, practicle outlooks. As did Fikile. He has publically stated that 1) He does not believe in the quote system 2) he supports the Springbok emblem 3) he belives sports development should come from the ground up (rural schools, inter school competitions, mentoring etc). So yes, I thinnk we all know who is is - question is - do you?

      Phelan Wulf - 2011-09-02 09:16

      @ShanMo, well. You have just proven that you have been taken in by the hype. Now prove that you can think! Why do you not find out more about the man? Not the face he puts on, but his actions. Keep in mind that the man is a politician, and the only reason a politician opens his mouth is to lie. Put things in the cotext of his faction taking a beating with the whole Luthuli house roits.... can you not see how he is working to restore his prestige? And how he is using closeminded people like yourself to do so? I never said that he was stupid! You whiteys are really easy to manipulate, because you are so scared and desperate. Think man, Think!

  • Johan Potgieter - 2011-09-01 21:01

    Classic speech from Fikile! It must have been a surprise!

  • Jon JJ - 2011-09-01 21:33

    Hey die Bokke - see you back at home after the second round. You have Mickey Mouse as your coach so we won't blame you.

      Francois Lee - 2011-09-02 07:45

      @ Jon JJ - I see no reason why the Boks can't reach the Final.... If they do, you will be the one with the rotten egg on your face. By the way the head coach name is Pieter de Villiers and not Mickey Mouse... Is this perhaps an indication of your knowledge of the game of Rugby? or is it indicative of your Infatuation with fairytales?

  • Jixby - 2011-09-01 21:48

    Fikile, you make me proud to be a South African! Just goes to show, the right words at the right time can still make a difference in this country. We need more leaders like that!! As for Maarten with his snide remark about Fikile. Dude, why don't you just wipe that dark negative vapors from your screen and for once, just once, rejoice in what Fikile did. Baie dankie Fikile......... en bokke: MOER HULLE!!

  • sanz - 2011-09-01 22:09

    The bokke will only be plaing five games....then they will be on thier way home...LOL!!!

      Francois Lee - 2011-09-02 13:13

      @Sanz - You're absolutely right!! 1. Wales 2.Samoa 3.Quarterfinal 4. Semi-Final 5. Final. You see... 5 Games .. The other two "games" against Fiji and Namibia would be like playing against the Blind School, so they "don't" count as games, just warm-ups!!!

  • The Dad - 2011-09-01 22:29

    Was actually nice to be there today. Well done to Fikile Mbalula, I enjoyed what he said - found in inspirational, uniting and reconciliatory. It actually reminded me of President Mandela - he was fun, but stately. He built cohesion - he built a nation. If Fikile keeps that up, I can happily say that it will help our country - our nation to heal our problems, build, unite and be strong!

  • Francois Lee - 2011-09-02 07:26

    @Bliksembende... Ek is geneig om met jou saam te stem dat die woordgebruik van die Minister nie juis PC was nie, maar jy moet ook besef dat op die ingewing van die oomblik 'n mens 'n foutjie kan maak. Dit is egter 'n lammetjie in vergelyking met wat jou op Nuweland of op die Cape Flats sal hoor waar mense passievol is oor Rugby. So jy's gelukkig die minister kon nie van die Cape Flats nie anders het jy dalk gehoor: *&^%$ hulle Bokke, die MA SE **&^%

  • brianR - 2011-09-02 07:38

    So when it comes to sport it's okay for a minister to incite violence.... but let julius just start singing....

      Sh@rks Fever - 2011-09-02 08:45

      Brian the minister never incited violence. The word moer can be used in many different ways in Afrikaans just as you can use words in english for many things. To translate for you, he meant they need to go thrash their opposition. Play them off the park. It's used to motivate the players. If I say go knock their socks of I don't literally mean go and take their socks off. Hope you now understand what he meant.

      brianR - 2011-09-02 09:44

      moer/bliksem in afrikaans means hit.... no other way to understand it... it was conveniently translated to thrash, which can be taken up in a sporting way...

    Sprinboks are the only national team that consistently making the country proud. Its our national duty to get behind the Sprinboks & continue learning from them how to be successful and contributing to nation bulding. Should the Sprinboks refend the W/C they 1st visit must be to Soweto as they failed to visit it when they were parading the Cup in 2007.

    Only in Africa can a minister be as vulgar as this. Because Africa is not measured against civilised standards. Think about it all ye white groupies, if you can. While you're being dragged down to their level, just like Dr Schweizer predicted, all those years ago. Yet ... VAT HULLE BOKKE! We'll try and drag the white retards from the muck afterwards.

    Mr. Mbalula, I would like to say I am so proud to be a springbok supporter after your rousing speech. I was privilaged to have met you at the SA Sports Awards Nominations. We need more aspiring ministers like you. Well done. Brad

    @Phelan Wulf. What a sad, racist prat you are. Get a life. There are politicians who have truth in their hearts, although many don't. So its not a given that a politician will always lie. Fikile was feeling it, that was truth right there. And whitey is desperate - desperate to live in peace and unity with all South Africans as brothers and sisters, without having to face the scourge of hatred and disdain from idiots like you. Give us a politician, give us a leader who has the gall to take us there. If South Africans celebrate the hope of a better life by focussing on sporting teams and wishing them well, so be it. And there is not one quota selection in this squad, every player is there on merit, for all you other racists out there. Every true rugby fan knows it. Go Bokke, moer hulle!
