For some people a great time means having a party, then for others it is just being themselves and watching the latest movie or reading a book that they like. During apartheid, soccer was popular across racial groups, but South Africa was banned from international competition because of its racially segregated government policies. Today, with the country hosting the World Cup, soccer’s popularity is on the wane, largely confined to black townships, while elite and mostly white schools remain the preserve of rugby and cricket. Vaal Professionals were thumped 5-1 away and Celtic beaten 2-1 two days later before PUBS lost 3-1. Now on a roll, Pirates turned their attentions to late stages of The Life Cup. Having already beaten Spa Sporting 2-1 in the first round and African Wanderers by the same score in the second round. They beat Pretoria Bantu Callies 3-1(helped by a Mgidi strut) in the last eight minutes. As can be expected, the clothes of the men were more comfortable, as they only had to contend with wearing pants up to their knees, overcoats, linen shirts, knee socks and heavy shoes. In addition to these, the only addition to the wardrobe is a powder white wig. Apart from showing their gender, the clothes during those times also showed the status of the one wearing it, which was reflected in the type of material used for the clothes. As well as the authenticity of detailing, function is also often tantamount in menswear design. Andrew Groves, Course Director at the University of Westminster , says, “Womenswear designers as a whole, I think, are still stuck in a very old fashioned way of designing, taking inspiration from abstract or ethereal subject matter, whereas menswear is far more about the technical, practical and functional nature of the designed garment. We should not kid ourselves that this is a problem that is faced by Africans in South Africa or is unique to us, only. African Americans, those who are dumb enough and come here to South Africa and behave with some haughtiness and arrogance â€” displaying how “inga’nt” they are, are in the same boat with us. I need not say this because I might be dismissed as an African in Africa, but Wilson bears out my assertions, and this is what Africans, all over the world, are having to deal with, equally and in the same way, no matter what. In short then, dependency and lack of national autonomy has made Africans slaves to other foreign people who hold autonomy and their own brand of independence(Imperialism,etc.) over Africans. It is attempting to unshackle and free themselves fro such servitude that African writers and activists are needed to right the wrongs being perpetrated upon the billions of Africans globally.
