A historic time is unfolding in South Africa. Zambians are a football loving nation and naturally, all eyes are on South Africa. The world witnesses its joys and sorrows. The historic moment when the 19th FIFA World Cup came to Africa, the tragic events that unfolded as the games set off, Nelson Mandela was there, but not there, the colorful opening ceremony and the magic of the first two days of competition. Did you see the Zulu traditional rapper on stage in the stadium?
The South African team put in a terrific performance and showed that they are a force to reckon with. I missed the crescendo-decrescendo of fans voices in the stadium because everybody seemed to be too busy blowing their vuvuzela.
