All the Bafana Bafana players who play overseas have reported for camp. However, there is still uncertainty if Kamohelo will play for South Africa and this is following the player acquiring Dutch citizenship. Owen Da Gama was mum when asked to comment on the issue but instead emphasized the Mokojo is South African and the matter is being handled by SAFA and FIFA.
