Governmental Overseers Say South Africa is Ready for the World Cup

The Inter-Ministerial Committee that oversees the governmental preparations for the World Cup says the country is on-track to host the event in June.

[Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe] said the committee was satisfied with all the reports submitted to them. These included reports on the management and training of protocol officials who will be involved in the management of guests and Heads of States and Governments attending the tournament.

"Most significantly, the meeting welcomed the report that all stadiums have been completed on time. This means no spectator will sit on wet cement come June 11 kick off! No other country has achieved this in all recent world cup finals," said Motlanthe.
