FIFA World Cup Soccer 2010 Police Assume Command After World Cup Strikes South Africa

How stupid! How sad! How ironic! What confirmation of utmost stupidity on the part of the organizers of the strike action! How embarrassing! Something that is putting South Africa in the spotlight is being used as a strike craft against South Africa. Must we Africans always be the laughing stock of the world? You are not just hurting the sport, you are hurting your fellow country men and women. You are inconveniencing our guests and you know what you are doing by calling for this strike action. I salute the South African Police Services (SAPS) for stepping up to the plate. However, we should show the world that we are no longer a police state. The picture that the world is seeing now looks similar to the picture during the apartheid era. The only difference is that now the people are smiling and not grimacing like before.

It is fairly obvious that the organizers of World Cup 2010 in South Africa are doing a great job. WE are in day five and things are going without a hitch bar the stupid strike action. Now is NOT the time. This is not the place. I hope that whoever is orchestrating this for a simple profit motive will be dumped in a mind shaft. At best they need their ass kicked, very hard; so hard that they never set foot in South Africa again.

The country, 49 million people are rooting for Bafana Bafana. I sincerely hope for a convincing win over Uruguay on Wednesday evening. I do not think that there will be much left to cheer for should South Africa not make it to the next round.

The referees seem to be very harsh in handing out red cards for what looks like yellow card offences on the field. Remember that often sportsmen are great actors. One minute they are so hurt and the next minute the magic water brings them to their feet with new energy. Soccer is indeed a game of startegy. The game on the field is often first won in the minds of the players who mastermind the moves and formations.

I am still wondering why there are empty seats in the stands when people are told that the matches are sold out. I still don’y get it.

I salute my comrades. I salute every race. I salute the office of the presidency. I salute the crowds for proving that sport is a great unifier even in the midst of the fiercest competition. Still proud to be South African.
