Onwell Msomi, the General Manager 2010 FIFA World Cup of Coca-Cola South Africa, the sponsors of the Trophy Tour, says “We have kept the best for last.  This is an opportunity to celebrate the first World Cup tournament on African soil and prepare the mood of the people of Sedibeng just days before the kick-off on 11 June.”

The Executive Mayor of Sedibeng, Cllr.
