DEPUTY President Kgalema Motlanthe has reiterated that South Africa is well on track to deliver a great 2010 Fifa World Cup.
Motlanthe was one of the leaders who were in Durban yesterday to join South Africans celebrating the 100 days countdown.
Also present was Fifa president Sepp Blatter, general secretary Jerome Valcke, Local Organising Committee chairperson Irvin Khoza, chief executive officer Danny Jordaan and Safa president Kirsten Nematendani.
"As we mark 100 days to the start of the 2010 Fifa World Cup, we do so with immense pride. We are proud because in many respects we are able to pronounce ourselves ready to welcome the world three months ahead of schedule," Motlanthe said.
Blatter again used the opportunity to reiterate that Fifa has every reason to believe South Africa will deliver a successful World Cup.
"On May 15 2004 we were in Zurich and I was sure when I opened the envelope that it would be South Africa, and it was. When Nelson Mandela took the trophy that night he said that a dream had come true. Together we can do this," Blatter said.
Jordaan said the 100-day milestone is as much a celebration of the work achieved as it is anticipation of the world's greatest football event.
"As South Africans we have encountered a lot of scepticism but today, as we celebrate this milestone, we can confidently say to the world that we will be ready."
