Name: Sanele Zwane
Age: Turning 13 (Birthday is tomorrow, October 24, 2012!)
We all know that PeacePlayers wouldn’t exist without our participants. They make us who we are. Under our vision, one of our goals is to “Develop Leaders”. Sanele Zwane is an example of someone who has been able to flourish as a leader because of PPI-SA. Sanele plays for Carrington Primary school in our “City” area. He has been with us for two years and has displayed love and passion for basketball as well as being a leader among his peers. He is the captain of the PPI-SA team at Carrington Primary School, and was chosen as an All-Star at our last City Wide Tournament. Sanele is not only a good basketball player, he is someone with honorable character and he is loved by his coach and teammates. He is always willing to lend out a helping hand and make his teammates better. We asked Sanele some questions about his experience with PPI, and where he hopes to go in the future.
