My World Cup Moment: Little Khumoitsile felt it!

2010-06-20 16:17

June 11, 2010 will forever be remembered. I watched on TV the match

between Bafana Bafana and Mexico from home together with my mother, sister,

nephew, niece and two other children.

When the first goal was scored by Siphiwe Tshabalala, we all went

outside and started blowing our vuvuzelas, leaving my 14-month-old daughter,

Phillipa Khumoitsile Leburu, in the house with my mother.

We had lots of vuvuzelas in the house and my daughter grabbed one

and attempted to blow. After realising that there wasn’t any sound coming out,

she started switching from one vuvuzela to another, until she decided to join us


She tried and tried and eventually, she sat down and with her eyes

shut, she kept on blowing. My little Khumoitsile also felt it!
