Fears for the 2010 World Cup.

The Soccer Word Cup should be a joyous occasion. People should be happy. While the world cup has brought much hope to South Africa, and many people are proud and glad that this big event has finally made it to South Africa. There is still a lot of fear.

More that half of South Africans are worried about the high crime rate in South Africa impacting on the 2010 World Cup, was the result of a survey from football's governing body FIFA.

The World Cup goes to South Africa for the first time next year. It is soccer's show-piece event and is expected to attract global interest in South Africa. They eyes of the world are upon us.

The crime in South Africa is one of the highest in the world. In FIFA's survey, they showed that 53% of the people were worried that the crime in South Africa could affect the event, which is now less than 500 days away.

Are you worried crime may affect the 2010 World Cup? What are your thoughts? Let us know.

Well you know what I think will happen!
Right before a game I can all ready see people blocking the roads with striking for pay increases and bonuses!!
That alone will be a disaster and I know it will happen!!

Etienne,I don't even want to think about it. I cringe. SA will be held over a barrel, and the government will have to give in or face stern comments from FIFA as well as, financial losses and other legal action. Not to mention being the laughing stock of the world. For ever.

You know, something ells I thought about. I used to live in the USA and to get around is so easy and road signs are full-up so you will always know where to go and where you are. Here in Cape Town the road signs are SHIT(not to mention the pot holes)….I have been living here for 4 years and even now sometimes I don’t know in what street I am in! I would hate coming to SA for a holiday and not being able to get around and keep having to ask people where this road is and that road! (And then you might just be in the road you were looking for). I don’t really go to Jo-Burg or Durban or PE so I cant say the same for them, but I am sure it will be exactly the same, if not worst! And what about the traffic! Getting to work takes me 1 hour every morning! What will the traffic be like during that time! And I don’t even work in the City! And what about the shit service we get and how LAID BACK everyone is here in Cape Town.
I don’t think SA is capable of hosting such a large international event! Go check out my website www.eRate.co.za and have a look what I am trying to achieve to “some how” try and better the service that we receive from companies!

Etienne,

I couldn't agree with you more. The road signs here in JHB are just as bad. I stay in Alberton. To get there you have to either follow the Kimberley or Witbank signs. If you did not know that you would be totally lost. But then if you knew that, You wouldn't need to follow the signs. Not to talk about the actual road markings and road names. You never know which road to turn into because the roads aren't named.

The funny thing is that, when tourists do come to SA, they will be totally confused, because one week a road will have one name, then it will change, and to make matters worse, it does not match any map.

Having said all that, I do hope that the 2010 will be a success.
Here is hoping and praying
