SAWUBONA! This is what flashes as you enter the newly launched Durban 2010 website.

Sawubona is an isiZulu greeting. The one-stop-shop website, launched yesterday by Julie-May Ellingson, head of Durban's strategic project unit, will give visitors information about the city, which boasts a unique cultural diversity.

She said the main objective of the website was to showcase Durban as a world-class African city.

Ellingson said the site was in isiZulu for better accessibility by locals. "We expect all people to be ambassadors," she said. - www.fifaworldcup.durban.-gov.za
