It was on this day in 2004 when South Africa won the 2010 FIFA World Cup bid in Zurich here in Switzerland, and today President Cyril Ramaphosa is in Geneva seeking to find solutions that will help curb high rate of unemployment in the world.
He’ll also engage fellow leaders on the sidelines during the two days to lobby support for South Africa to win a non permanent seat at the UN Security council.
