This is Where World Cup Pariahs Live

Woodbridge Island Cape Town. Home to multi-million Rand homes in Milnerton, Cape Town. A high-security complex accessible only via a dedicated bridge onto the island. Lots of facilities. No World Cup spirit. It’s where the World Cup pariahs and denialists go to die.

According to the web site for the development, these are some of the things you can do on the island: Walk and explore the Island, swim in 3 sparkling pools, bird-watch, canoe on the lagoon, feed Koi fish and fly a kite on the beach, surf, windsurf or kite-surf.

But, according to a circular distributed to residents by the body corporate, one thing you cannot do on Woodbridge Island is blow the vuvuzela or even fly a flag outside of your property where (presumably) it would be an eye-sore.

The note in the circular is clear. Under the heading Vuvuzelas and Flags, the opening line quite simply says: “Not on Woodbridge Island please.” It then goes on to cite all sorts of complex rule sections and paragraph numbers.

As if a one month celebration of global importance to this country is as significant to these rich, privileged fools as the day the garbage is collected. And gosh, imagine the uproar if the garbage truck runs a few minutes late. There would be a rate-payers boycott out of this lot of unpatriotic mountain goat colonial has beens.

I think the entrance to the complex bridge would make the perfect place to meet up with your vuvuzela orchestra for Sunday morning rehearsals, don’t you agree?


  1. I just heard on 702; a guy was spotted walking his dog on WI, with a SA flag tied to the leash 🙂

    • Haha! That’s what we like – rebels with a cause! A case of Woodbridge Islands’ policy going to the dogs perhaps?
