Edgar Legoale Knockout Soccer Challenge

“Building a drug free community and fighting gangsterism through Sports”

15 January 2018

Tumahole is a community that is very rich in talent. In fact, very well known people like Jerry Phele, Ace Magashule, Tokelo Rantie, just to mention a few,come from the dusty township known as Tumahole. Like most communities in South Africa substance abuse and gangsterism are very rife in that community.

Concerned youth activist and philanthropist, Edgar Legoale has taken the initiative to host a soccer challenge to unite communities that are divided due to gangsterism boarders. The challenge will see young people in different sections coming together to form soccer teams that will play for massive prizes .

The Edgar Legoale Knockout Soccer Challenge (ELKSC) is a Community programme with the purpose of fighting the societal ills and chaleenges such as drug abuse and gangsterism which are facing our youth. We believe that we have a responsibility to fight gangsterism and drugs in our communities and that the
responsibility cannot be left to attention of the government alone.

This programme was aimed at attracting youth from all corners in Tumahole but due to the massive response and support it has youth and teams from neighbouring townships. We want to give life and meaning to the saying “It takes a village to raise a child”. Together, will help keep our youth off the streets and away from gangsterism and drugs.

The soccer challenge awareness campaigns will be hosted during January. They will include public dialogues and visiting schools and highly affected community members to encourage active participation of citizens in the fight against substance abuse and gangsterism. Get them young and keep them in the playing field, they shall never stray. We wish to thank everyone who has committed their support to the programme, namely: DJ Finzo (Lesedi Fm),SAPS,CFP,Kelly Cares Foundation, Free Home Foundation, KZM Dj, Parys, VW Club, FreeState Traffic Department, Tavern Owners Association, Tumahole Ladies FC,Imbumba Youth Development,Leadership is Action, Free State Youth Foundation,TMI, YCLSA, and Letswe FM.
