However, the City of Johannesburg will be spending just over R20 million worth on municipal services during the tournament; this is money Johannesburg can ill afford. We believe that this money could be utilised for programmes that are intended to benefit the community, improve maintenance of sports and recreation facilities within the City.
We would like to take this opportunity and wish our National Soccer team Bafana Bafana good luck. We hope they make us proud and win the tournament as they did in 1996.
