Give our vuvuzela a fair hearing at the 2010 World Cup

Love it or hate it, the noisy vuvuzela is synonymous with football in South Africa.
For the uninitiated, the vuvuzela is a plastic horn usually blown by football fans at matches.
I personally feel that the vuvuzela is part and parcel of the South African football culture.
There’s no denying that they add a uniquely South African flavour to your football experience!
So my message to all football fans is: come on out here and hear our humble plastic horn, and judge for yourself whether it’s an instrument of torture or an African symbol of the beautiful game.
