AFTER successfully hosting 147 global events without major security concerns, the more than 500000 tourists coming to South Africa for the 2010 World Cup will have a great time.
This according to ANC Youth League president Julius Malema, who assured people around the world that they will be safe in South Africa.
"South Africa is a safe country. Naturally we have challenges like any other country, be it on continents like Europe or the United States. We live in South Africa every day and are surviving.
"Security will be tight during the World Cup. The law-enforcement agencies will be deployed in all the nine host cities."
International events hosted by South Africa include the 1995 Rugby World Cup, 1996 Africa Cup of Nations finals, 1996 World Cup of Golf, IAAF World Cup of Athletics, 2009 ICC Champions Trophy, 2007 World Twenty20 Championships, 2009 Indian Premier League, 2009 Confederations Cup and the 2010 World Cup final draw.
"We have proved beyond any doubt that we are the best when it comes to hosting major global events. The 2010 Fifa World Cup will not be an exception," Malema said.
"South Africa has been commended by everybody who visited our country to participate in the global events. Brazil were also (happy) after the 2009 Confederations Cup."
He also cited the example of the touring England national cricket team that was here for more two months recently, "without a single problem".
"People must come to South Africa and see for themselves how beautiful our country is before cooking up stories about our security.
"The security cluster in South Africa are on top of the situation with regard to the World Cup, they are reinforcing security after the attack on the Togolese national team in Angola.
"But I must say what happened in Angola has absolutely nothing to do with South Africa. Our law-enforcement agencies have been trained to deal with any challenge."
The South African law- enforcement agencies will be working with Interpol to ensure that thugs are now allowed into the country.
