Africa Cup of Nations: The boy who designed the Takuma mascot

Help

One talking point in the Africa Cup of Nations has been the mascot, a hippopotamus called Takuma.

The fans love it. What they might not know is that it was designed by a 13-year-old orphan, Tumelo Nkoana, who lives in Hammanskraal, a small town in South Africa's northern province of Gauteng, near Pretoria.

BBC Africa's Nomsa Maseko went out to meet him.
