Anroux Marais, the minister of cultural affairs and sport for the Western Cape, has expressed concern that South Africa’s lack of anti-doping legislation may prevent the Springboks and Proteas from competing in award ceremonies while flying the flag or singing the national anthem.

According to Minister Marais,” The national government is aware that such legislation must be passed, and it is essential that it be done so immediately.” On Wednesday of next week, I have a meeting with the World Anti-Doping Agency( WADA ). The Western Cape Government will exert every effort to support the South African Springboks and Proteas in their competitions under our flag and anthem.
The government reportedly missed the deadline to update its anti-doping law in order to comply with the most recent WADA code, according to the Daily Maverick. More than 700 sporting federations from all over the world agreed on and accepted the revised code, which went into effect in January 2021.
