Either side failed to find the back of the net in the closely contested encounter that had the Ghanaians having a slim edge possession-wise.
However they failed to do what was expected of them – goal scoring in their debut game at the tournament.
The South Africans have two points whilst Ghana’s Black Queens and ‘Les Lionnes’ of Cameroon, have a point each from one match each.
The Cameroon – Ghana clash will serve a repeat of the final meeting at the 2011 edition of the multisport event which ‘Les Lionnes’ triumphed by a lone goal.
The group was reduced to three teams following the withdrawal of Egypt few days to the opening ceremony.
Meanwhile, Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire have qualified for the semis from Group A.
