Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha !!! This goes out to the afro-pessimists of the world. Consider your faces well and truly stomped.
The level of crime around the South African World Cup had been incredibly low, organising committee chief Danny Jordaan said in Johannesburg on Friday.
"It had been perhaps the lowest of any World Cup," he said at a media breakfast on the eve of the final match of the South African tournament.
"The police were efficient and the special courts were effective... the question is how do we maintain this?"
Jordaan said many people were asking him how South Africans could make the positive experiences of the last 30 days a permanent feature of the country.
It was aspects like the crime control and "swift justice" that were the type of things that should be carried through, he said.
"It is a challenge to us all in South Africa to maintain that... we have had an image make-over for South Africa and the continent of Africa.
"We have succeeded in re-branding and repositioning this country."
The proof that South Africa could be efficient and could deliver on its promises was there. This was the country that the rest of the world wanted to interact with and invest in.
"As a country we are incredibly blessed to be able to have the opportunity to build a new nation," Jordaan said.
