Soweto turning blue for Bulls

2010-05-20 09:12
Johannesburg - Bulls supporters will show Soweto how to celebrate a victory on Saturday.

This prediction comes from Linda Mosia, manager of the well-known Sa-khumzi restaurant in Orlando, Soweto. He says there is great excitement brewing in Soweto for the Bulls' semi-final against the Crusaders at the Orlando stadium.

"I think those Bulls are going to be surprised when they drive through the streets of Soweto in their bus on Saturday. We're going to paint this whole place blue. Jis, it's going to be magic."

He says rugby is very popular in Soweto and "the Bulls made a good decision when they decided to come here".

His restaurant is fully booked for Saturday - a rare occurrence, according to Mosia.

"We get many enquiries from Bulls supporters who want to eat here before they go to the stadium, and many say they're coming back afterwards to celebrate the victory."

Special day


Frazer Mphahlele, a resident, says his father was the caretaker of the old Orlando stadium in the 1960s.

"I practically grew up in that stadium."

He says the fact that the Bulls are going to play at the stadium gives him a wonderful feeling. "It's going to be a big and special day for Soweto and I think the team is going to have huge support."

He says the rugby is a nice appetiser before next month's World Cup.

John Kwezi, a local street artist, says he wishes Bryan Habana was still playing for the Bulls.

"It's a pity he isn't coming to Orlando."
