Ayoba! The time has finally arrived for South Africa. The countdown is down to just 1 day and surprisingly the nay-sayers both locally and abroad still haven’t let up with their views of unmitigated disaster in the country. Wonkie believes it is time for positive thinking and some much-needed optimism – particularly for all of Africa. The troubled continent has as yet never experienced this type of euphoria and Wonkie is glad that some joy and happiness, however short-lived it may be, has finally arrived.
In the spirit of South Africa at this very second, Wonkie decided to publish a vuvuzela cartoon. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the instrument, this is what it looks like in action:
The sound level emitted from this weapon of mass destruction comes in at a whopping 127 decibels which is louder than having your ear next to an excited lawnmower or a local politician screaming out election promises. It is in fact, the loudest of all fan instruments and Fifa has approved use of the screeching trumpet for the World Cup under certain conditions. There are still fears that racket may drown out emergency announcements at stadiums – regardless though, the proof is in the pudding and Wonkie expects some sore ears on Friday evening.
Seriously for a moment, the Hear the World Foundation has warned that vuvuzelas may cause permanent hearing loss if ears are exposed to the noise for extended periods. So if you are attending any of the matches, please take adequate precautions.
Finally, Wonkie wishes Bafana Bafana the absolute best of luck in the 2010 Fifa World Cup tournament – may the spirit of South Africans be captured in their performance over the next month!
