FIFA World Cup 2010 South Africa breaking online video below:

Nelson Mandela will not attend the opening ceremony of the World Cup following the death of his great granddaughter in a car accident, the South African organising committee have confirmed. It had been hoped that the iconic 91-year-old would be able to attend despite his frail condition but Thursday’s tragic news means he will not be present at Soccer City for the opening extravaganza or the match between South Africa and Mexico which follows it. A statement released from the organising committee read: “Mr Nelson Mandela this morning learned of the tragic death in an accident of his great-grand-daughter, Zenani Mandela (13 years old). “It would therefore be inappropriate for him to personally attend the Fifa World Cup opening celebrations. “We are sure that South Africans and people all over the world will stand in solidarity with Mr Mandela and his family in the aftermath of this tragedy.” Author: itnnews Tags: nelson mandela foundation black eyed peas south africa zenani mandela south african president nelson mandela shakira Posted: 11 June 2010 Rating: 0.0 Votes: 0
