The Soweto derby through celebs' eyes

Yesterday's #Sowetoderby was nothing short of action packed, even if it ended in a draw (Hey believe me, for us non-football folk it's so much easier to bare with when both teams' fans walk away with the spoils). 

Celebrities and popular figures around the country showed their support too; the Soweto derby really does bring the country together, and even if you're not a football fan, you'll find that one way or another you're following what goes on. Minnie Dlamini, Zwelinzima Vavi and Helen Zille were amongst the celebs who voiced their excitement and reactions to the Soweto derby on social media.

Here are the seven #Sowetoderby posts I loved the most from celebrities this weekend.

1. Zwelinzima Vavi's tweet was kinda sweet, if you think about it. 


2. Must be tough being you, Arthur!

4. Justice Malala's Jacob Zuma caption was brilliant.



5. Hellen Zille was clearly not impressed at the drab result in the end!


6. Tsholo Maseko's live tweeting got pretty emotional too; scoreless draws aren't that boring...


7... or are they, as Zeus's hilarious retweet might beg to differ
