Sorry, don't know how to post it differently.
Thanx for the link Pronks.

It was an "interesting" read

I'll be doing something more interesting on Saturday than watching the rugby... Perhaps watching paint dry

But which country: the old or the new?

i do wonder how much longer they will sing Die Stem alongside Nkosi Sikele Africa, once upon a time it was Die Stem in Afrikaans then in English...I see they now only sing the Afrikaans version

?

Wasn't the English version

The Call of South Africa

it truthfully was never the same for me in English as it was in Afrikaans

Die Stem is a truly powerful anthem, just a pity that there has to be so much attached for both sides of the fence

All the way through this world cup they have sung in four languages - Zulu, Xhosa, Afrikaans and English.
