President Jacob Zuma and his deputy Kgalema Motlanthe have donned green T-shirts, together with members of Cabinet, to show support for the Cop17 Climate Change conference kicking off in Durban tomorrow.

The city’s International Convention Centre has been declared a United Nations zone.

The city centre and the area immediately around the ICC will be completely closed to traffic.

Minister of International Relations Maite Nkoana-Mashabane has urged some 15 000 delegates to do more than just spout hot air during the talks.
