LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

LET ME CONVEY THE MESSAGE FROM MADIBA, OUR ICON, WHO WANTED TO COME, TO WELCOME YOU ALL HERE TODAY. DUE TO THE TRAGEDY THAT OCCURED, HE COULD NOT BE HERE. BUT HE SAID 'THE GAME MUST START AND YOU MUST ENJOY THE GAME!'

THIS IS THE AFRICA WORLD CUP. YES, YES, YES. THE TIME FOR AFRICA HAS COME. HAS ARRIVED!

ALLOW ME, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN TO SAY: 'I AM HONORED AND PRIVILEGED TO BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO DECLARE THAT THE WORLD CUP FIFA 2010, IS 'OPEN'

JACOB ZUMA, SOUTH AFRICA PRESIDENT
