Majimbos will assemble in Sedibeng tomorrow to start their final preparations for the Four Nations Cup taking place in the area on Friday.

The other three countries who will participate in this inaugural tournament are Lesotho, Botswana and Swaziland.

Sipho Nkumane, the Bafana Bafana team manager, is the coordinator of this tournament that is part of the Human Rights Day celebrations.

"There are many activities lined up for the Human Right Day celebrations, including jazz and cultural entertainment, starting this week," he said.

"It is a joint partnership between Sedibeng District Municipality and Safa, who are helping in securing the soccer teams to play in this event.

"We are going to stage the tournament annually."

The municipality will also use Human Right's Day on March 21 to promote the area and province ahead of the Confederations Cup and 2010 World Cup.

Solly Luvhengo, a top development coach who has worked as the team's assistant for six years, has been appointed by Safa to be in charge of the team as Teboho Moloi's contract has expired.

Mandla Mazibuko, who works at the Transnet Football School of Excellence, will assist Luvhengo.

"Teboho's contract has come to an end, I'm still awaiting a recommendation from the team's administrative and technical team," explained Hack.
