Speech - Deputy Minister: United Nations MDG Advocacy Campaign - 14 May 2010

With the clock ticking alarmingly fast and only 27 days left before the kick-off of the greatest sporting event ever to happen on the African continent, I am honoured to officiate at the United Nations Millennium Development Goals Advocacy Campaign and the MDG Song Launch event. In less than a month the eyes of the world will be firmly focussed on South Africa for the duration of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. As South Africans we pride ourselves with the state of readiness and the positive change we have made in the lives of our people through this opportunity. Since the announcement in Zurich on 15 May 2004, that South Africa would host the 2010 FIFA World Cup, South Africans have proudly risen to the task of preparing for organising and hosting a memorable World Cup. As Government we want to ensure that the World Cup is also a project of the nation that will contribute to nation building, unity and patriotism.
