One of my obits...and a really sad one.
Zenani Mandela, aged 13, great grand-daughter of Madiba died in a car crash on her way home from the World Cup Concert last night.
If there is one person who made this fantastic Soccer World Cup possible, it is Nelson Mandela. He is due to turn 92 just after the games. He is not in the best of health, but everyone is hoping that he is able to put in an appearance, even if short at the event.
I don't know much, but I do know that great grandfathers should not have to bury their great grand-children.
There is a wonderful vibe...it starts in South Africa, and it is going all around the world. For almost the first time, in this process, we are getting good press... Looking at different headlines around the world, they are all upbeat, optimistic. Some are managing to find a few small negative issues to have a dig at further into the articles, but the headlines, the feelings are mostly good... Sad then, that we have these tears.
I know there have been concerts, and all sorts of events to welcome the start of the World Cup. But I think Cape Town has put the very best show on this morning. Basking in the winter sun, protected by Table Mountain, Lions Head, Signal Hill. The Mother City looks fantastic!! People are just walking around, soaking up the atmosphere...
