Vuvuzela Trumpets

vuvuThis Confed Cup is arguably the best held to date with powerhouses Italy, Spain and Brazil putting on strong performances – yes, I’m being sarcastic. If there’s team that is playing with heart, that team is Egypt. The pharoahs are taking the Cup seriously and really showing the world why they are African Champions. If they win, it’ll be great for Africa.

Now, I believe Fifa took on the King Fahd Cup because it saw the championship as a means of testing the structure of the nation to hold the next World Cup. South Africa has put on a good show so far despite some stadiums being a bit empty. There’s an explanation for that: at $100,00 a ticket, and games being held during working hours(the first match only), how the hell does FIFA expect to have fans on the stands? Idiots! Although this issue does bother, it is easily over looked the minute your ear drums start aching to the unceasing buzz echoing from the stands: the vuvuzela trumpets. The sound is annoying! That’s why the walls of Jericho fell! The people of Jericho broke the walls down on themselves to escape the blaring! Death was the sweeter option. Now, as for those South African fans, they are ALL LUNGS! Don’t they realize the commotion they’re creating? I’m fully aware that it is the country’s soccer culture, but it has to be done away with! Nobody will buy a ticket to have some guy blow the crap out of a vuvuzela throughout the match!

The players and the media have already taken note of this and I believe FIFA will have to come to a decision of whether to ban the ogrish trumpet or not. If nothing is done, the 2010 World Cup is bound to be marred by the ghastly vuvuzela.

Desmond Tutu agrees!

The man who was named after the South African dial tone spoke out. And I´m glad he did! I give you Desmond Tutu:

1/Jul/08 “We have to remind some in our country that there are those in Zimbabwe who have been ready to kill for Mr Mugabe,” said Tutu. “See what happens. They [the South Africans] speak about a revolution. Now, I don’t know what that refers to, but whatever it is, that revolution is not going to be sustained and preserved by intemperate, almost inane utterances. That revolution, the dream that is South Africa, the promise that is South Africa, that is going to be preserved when you and I are vigilant, you and I preserve freedom, you and I stand up for justice… you and I say, hey, our people did not shed blood for nothing.”

So, stop singing for Zuma. Don´t waste your time singing for men in general. It is not he who will feed your family or whatever, but you! Get off you political arses and start working for South Africa, and not for a political party that will do away with you if necessary.

You thought apartheid was tough? You think you´re free now? If you continue submitting to a man with no scruples, you´re done for. Think for youselves!

Consider Mugabe. Zimbabwe is every african´s dream, hey? puh-lease!
