Executive Mayor of Capricorn District Municipality John Mpe takes pride in congratulating Baroka FC for winning the 2018 Telkom Knockout Cup in Port Elizabeth at the weekend.
For a club that was promoted to the premier league just two years ago, we could not be more proud of how much they have had to overcome to defeat a big club like Orlando Pirates and bring the glory home to Lepelle Nkumpi, in Capricorn district. Together with the rest of SA, we were impressed with their form, consistency, composure and confidence they oozed throughout the competition. Not only have the made fans proud, but have given Capricorn district and the entire Limpopo Province a hope to see them build on this success to boost their chances to contend for the league title.
We salute you Baroka, and congratulations!
J Mpe, Executive Mayor
