Cape Town’s Giant Vuvuzela muted

The world’s biggest trumpet measuring at 37 meters situated on one of the unfinished flyover roads in Cape Town have drawn lots of attention. The giant vuvuzela would have to be powered by the horn of a giant truck.

The authorities in Cape Town have put the plans ice to sound the monster instrument for fears the deafening sound could wreak havoc on the roads below.

“Hopefully, we are going to come to a compromise where we can blow it at special occasions, the final, the semi-finals and perhaps the quarter-finals,” says Francoise Marais marketing manager for Hyundai South Africa, makers of the giant vuvuzela.

South Africa have bowed out of the World Cup 2010 and have made history as the first World Cup host team to exit the competition in the group stages. While we making history we might as well honk the world biggest trumpet.
