Festive mood at WC Fan Fest

2010-06-11 14:00

Cape Town - One man, who stood out among the crowd queuing outside the FanJol venue in the Breede River town of Worcester on Friday, was grandfather Johannes Witbooi.

He was wearing a yellow Brazil T-shirt.

"I have supported them all these years," he said, standing next to his wife and two grandchildren, who were all decked out in South African colours.

Witbooi said, however, he was going to be shouting for South Africa today. "Because I'm South African, I support Bafana today."

Asked if he ever argued with his wife, Mercia, over a game, he laughed and conceded it happens occasionally.

"Da' kom stryery," (We do argue) he said.

A colourfully dressed Bafana supporter was staggering around outside the venue, entertaining the waiting crowd with rather colourful language and blasts from his vuvuzela.

One spectator, who did not want to be named, said: "Die wyn gat hom leegmaak. Hy sal honger ly later in die dag." (The wine will empty him up. He will get hungry later in the day.)

The man actually made it through security and managed to get into the fan park.
