Mandela and Tutu looking for votes 30/04/04
Two Nobel Peace Prize laureates, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu are in Trinidad and Tobago canvassing for votes from CONCACAF for South Africa's 2010 World Cup bid campaign.

They are to meet CONCACAF president Jack Warner before his confederation's congress over the weekend.

CONCACAF have three FIFA executive members which the SA 2010 Bid Committee will be trying to sway in their favour.

The Bid Committee is leaving nothing to chance after they lost the right to host the 2006 World Cup to Germany by just one point.

Mandela has said that it will be nice for South Africa to win the right to host the World Cup in the same year that the country is celebrating 10 years of democracy.

At the same time the  chairman of the 2010 Bid Company Irvin Khoza is in Cameroon attending the CAF African Soccer awards and will be campaigning for the right of the country to host the world's most sporting show-peace.
