Dear AFCON LOC

12 February 2013, 10:00
We thank you for such a great work and showcase. It was nice to listen to all the noises from visitors. They really were such a noisy bunch and each time they scream, i could feel the blood boiling with my veins and I always found myself willing to repeat the poem by Thabo Mbeki and say "I am an African".

Thanks for bringing them in. Your task does not end there though. You have another task on your plate again. You need to undo the good work you did so as to perfect it. If you don't all the good work will become a bad one. Can you please assist our visitors, the fellow brothers and sisters from up north, to find their way back home as you brought them in?

Please show that you care. Let's show that South Africa is the country with citizens that care. Some of them might be lost as their trying to find their way out. They might end up being lost in Hillbrow and Sunnyside. You know South Africa has such complex routes, byways and highways, not to forget the sideways. Please take them by hand and lead them out. I am sure some have already forgotten where the airports are.

Oh by the way, there are other visitors who came in during 2010 World Cup, 1996 AFCON and other years back who could not find their way out due to the complexities that arise when one is trying to leave the country. Please pass by Hillbrow, Berea and Sunnyside to fetch them as well. Their families missed them. At least when they go home they will not go empty handed as they will carrying the AFCON cup in their hands. (Make sure that there is no powered stuff inside though). They can sing all the way home in celebration.

Thanks in advance.

The South African Poultry Association has made allegations that the increased US poultry imports will undermine the gains made by the local industry. I find this to be manifestly unfounded on a number of grounds. Read more...
