Fifa President Sepp Blatter is in Cape Town this week to assess progress for 2010.

Executive Mayor Helen Zille and Premier Ebrahim Rasool are scheduled to give Blatter a full progress report.

Pieter Cronje spokesperson for the City of Cape Town says: “The Fifa President will see impressive progress and he will see that all construction is ahead of schedule. Phase one is complete and they will be moving on to phase two.”

According to Rasool’s office, development on public transport, hotels and infrastructure is going smoothly. This is all part of preparation for the 2010 World cup.

Cape Town has long been a favourite to host some of the World Cup fixtures, because of its beautiful scenery, including Table Mountain, the Atlantic Ocean and Robben Island, all of which will be the backdrop of semi-finals during the 2010 tournament.

I have tried on 7 different occasions to communicate with the LOC for the World Cup. Being overseas, meeting with FIFA regularly, allows me to make a massive contribution to South Africa's efforts to stage a successful World Cup. Sadly, all my letters to the LOC remain unanswered. The level of competence in the LOC is shocking! Comments are most welcome, suggestions would be even better!

Further to my previous post. I will meet with Sepp Blatter soon, and regretfully I have to report to him about the LOC's ignorance of my communications.
Readers are welcome to forward this communication to the LOC in South Africa, and/or to Tim Modise.
