After nearly not making it into Egypt because he did not have a Visa, Bafana super fan Botha Msila is now getting royal treatment in the country.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Msila and his Zimbabwean travelling companion Alvin Zhakata were stranded in Ethiopia after their hitchhiking trip to Egypt for the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) went wrong.
After three days at the border between Kenya and Ethiopia pleading for help, Msila went to Nairobi where he was helped by the South African Embassy to apply for the Egyptian visa.
The super fan has fulfilled his dream of hitch-hiking from Mzansi to Cairo to watch the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
“I can’t wait for the games to begin. That is why I am here."
Msila arrived at the Al Salam Stadium in Egypt as something of a celebrity as international fans recognised him from previous matches. In a video shared by Robert Marawa on social media, he is seen being treated like royalty.
Msila thanked Marawa and other South Africans for making it possible for him to be in Egypt.
