I suppose to ask what SA is feeling about the Fifa 2010 World Cup is exaggerated!
Let's rephrase that, what are my feelings as a South African about the Fifa 2010 World Cup?
My feelings have been very positive up to now. I have been very excited about the potential that the Fifa 2010 World Cup will do and has all ready done for South Africa.
I like the investments in our roads, airports and in some city's like Johannesburg massive public transport investments. Then there are the sights of cranes here and there meaning our economy is growing. An estimated 129 000 jobs have been created by the Fifa 2010 World Cup event.
Then, is my disappointment, I feel so sad that S.A, governed by the majority party the ANC is not behaving as a social responsible global citizen.
This highlighted, when the ANC destroyed the PSL's plan to hold a peace conference in SA last week. The ANC refused entry to the Dalai Lama who was the guest of honour.
I watched Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu on e-tv (our local news channel), cry on national TV as he expressed his intense disappointment at how the ANC has turned away from their moral values. He, went on to express how horrified and shocked he was that Trevor Manuel (SA's well liked finance minister)had insulted the Dalai Lama by asking "Who, exactly is the Dala Lama?".
For me, this spoilt the positive spirit of SA holding the Fifa 2010 World Cup here. It has left me feeling ashamed of the SA government the ANC. It also makes me scared about what the future holds in SA, I wonder who is actually controlling the SA government? It seems it is actually communist China...
