1. Rachel Kolisi shares defining moment of Siya, kids and Webb Ellis Cup

Hearts all over the world melted when Rachel, Siya’s father and the two kids took the field to congratulate Siya and the rest of the boys on their win - a moment that will never be forgotten.

Taking to social media, Rachel shared a momentous pic of Siya and their two children kissing the Webb Ellis Cup where she highlighted the fact that her son and daughter actually have no idea the magnitude of the achievement their daddy has actually accomplished.

Nicholas Siyamthanda and Keziah will one day understand the significance of this moment and the true hero that their father is, and they are going to be proud all over again!

2. Samkelo shares video of her proudly speaking only Zulu to her daughter

Local actress and beauty, Samkelo Ndlovu, won't be teaching her baby girl to talk English at home. She feels that teaching little Zhuri Zulu and Xhosa is more important and that English can come when she's in school and learning it with other children.

Samkelo is obviously proud of her heritage and wants that to be reflected in how she raises her child. Recently, she shared a video of her with the adorable little one and decided to tell people to stop asking her about the language thing.

"Please stop asking me why I don’t speak English to my daughter. She’s not English. She’ll learn it at school. At home, we speak Xhosa and Zulu and she will be multilingual like her mom."

3. Mzansi reacts to seeing Mapimpi participating in Xhosa traditions

Makazole Mapimpi has been the media darling since the Springboks' return from Japan. A social media user recently shared amazing photos of the rugby player participating in a traditional Xhosa ritual in rural Eastern Cape.

Twitter user Mawandinho shared the pictures with the caption: "Mapimpi does the Lord's work in his spare time."

The pictures showed a casually-dressed Mapimpi carrying icansi (mat) and accompanying successful initiates from the mountain.

This act is usually done by a close family member so the young men may well be related to the rugby player. Xhosa social media users were impressed by his deep devotion to his culture and practices.

4. Woman claims 'Mapimpi' slid into her DMs: "Answer your inboxes"

A woman identified as Vuyolwethu Linyana Ntshukumbana shared a screenshot of a hilarious conversation with somebody named "Makazole Drex Mapimpi".

She alleges that it's the Springbok player and he tried to contact her four years ago. She ignored him because he was not as famous at the time but now regrets her decision. She tried responding a few days ago, explaining her four-year silence as having no network.
