Millions of eyes will be focused on South Africa this weekend when Fifa conducts the 2010 World Cup preliminary draw in Durban this weekend.

Accompanying this will be a moment of truth for many South Africans to whom the draw will represent tangible proof we are on course to host Earth's greatest spectacle.

South Africa's finest hour will notably be witnessed by dignitaries from all over the world. Thankfully Durban is putting on a shine to showcase the country as a great holiday destination.

Even the earlier threat by the NUM to spoil the party, following the strike at Durban's World Cup stadium, has dissipated with the resolution of the wage dispute on Monday.

It's all systems go for Africa to celebrate this coup.
