JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African traditional leaders plan to perform ritual animal slaughters to bless stadiums for the 2010 World Cup tournament ahead of the start of the showcase event next June, they said on Friday.

Zolani Mkiva, chairman of the Makhonya Royal Trust, a grouping responsible for co-ordinating cultural activities, said the tournament, the first to be held in Africa, needed to be blessed in true "African style."

"We must have a cultural ceremony of some sort, where we are going to slaughter a beast (cow)," said Mkiva.

"We sacrifice the cow for this great achievement and we call on our ancestors to bless, to grace, to ensure that all goes well. It's all about calling for the divinity to prevail for a fantastic atmosphere."

South Africa is set to host the World Cup -- the world's most watched sports spectacle -- in less than eight months, with the tournament expected to attract about 500,000 foreign tourists.

Mkiva said the Trust has sent letters to the chief executive and chairman of the World Cup Local Organizing Committee (LOC), proposing traditional ceremonies to be performed at each of the 10 stadiums that are going to be used for the event.

The officials have yet to respond to the request.

"We believe that from the start we've got to do things in accordance with our own traditions," Mkiva said.

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

Ceremonial animal slaughters are the order of the day in many parts of the continent. What's the big deal? You think your steak grew on some tree?

That it happens doesn't make the practice civilised.

And my steak came from a cow. The difference is, the cow was slaughtered to provide food, not to satisfy some barbaric local ritual to provide good luck. In my view, if you kill an animal, you'd better damn well be prepared to eat it. :angry:

The animal that's slaughtered is consumed as well. They don't just kill for the sake of killing. And if you think that the cow that your steak came from was killed in a civilized manner, then I think you ought to pay a visit to your local slaughterhouse - or pull up some footage on youtube.

I agree, usually in ceremonies the slain animal is consumed.. and steak that comes from slaughterhouses, is certainly not mercy-killed...

Just what is in your view a "civilized" way to kill an animal?In a slaughter house an animial is stunned and they are stuck and they bleed out. That is a pretty universal method of animal slaughter.

No different than a slaughter house except we will eat the animal.

This is the footage I suggested pulling up - the end of the "civilized" existence of meat production animals.

There seems to be the idea that people in less civilized countries, if you want to call it that, are all barbarians exposing animals to cruel suffering. All I'm saying is that animals are treated no better - and often worse - in the mass meat production facilities of the civilized world.
