MINISTER of Sports, Culture and Youth Affairs Hlobsile Ndlovu is worried by the pessimistic attitude being displayed by the people of Southern Africa when it comes to the region’s capacity to host the 2010 World Cup.

“I think this is the time when we should start believing in ourselves. People should remove the negative thoughts from their minds and begin to believe that South Africa will successfully host the World Cup.”

Ndlovu said it was observed in Namibia there are critics that South Africa will not be able to host the World Cup because of the high crime rate. But she said it is surprising because even the other countries which have been able to host the same tournament also have crime. “In Swaziland too, I have observed that there is a high level of negativity. But people should start believing in themselves”.
