Can we have a moment of Silence?...

Howdy Y'all!

If you are reading this today, then you probably are doing it because you need something or someone(me) to take your mind off the fan ruckus, football tv presenters and VuvuZella blaring South Africans.

It is indeed a great day for everyone in the world. A dream come true for many(mostly South Africans who won't go to school or will have to work half day for a month because of the World Cup). The fight for freedom, equality and a chance to show that we can prove ourselves has finally paid off.

I'm particularly loving Shakira's performance from last night.It was a lot of fun to watch, really colourful and entertaining. As with all celebrations though, i always pity those who have to clean up the venue... that's so not my favourite job.

In the midst of all the excitement and making merry by all of us, the family of a South African pillar has been thrown into grief and mourning. The death of Nelson Mandela's great granddaughter Zenani Mandela in a car accident has indeed saddened many of us who do not believe in doing many wrong things in the name of football.

Johannesburg Metro police spokeswoman Edna Mamonyane said the driver of the car, a man, had been arrested and charged with drunk-driving. She said the driver, whom the police refused to name, could also face culpable homicide charges. “The Metro police found that he was drunk,” Mamonyane said. “He lost control of the vehicle and it collided with a barricade.”

Police spokesman Govindsamy Mariemuthoo, who earlier said the driver would appear in court for a preliminary hearing Friday, said that it had been postponed for more investigations, and that the driver was not being held. Mariemuthoo said that was not unusual...

May her gentle 13 year old soul rest in peace.
