Africa has never hosted a Summer Olympics. On January 13, 2005 a statement by the IOC President Jacques Rogge urged African nations to bid for the 2016 Olympics stating that an African city would stand a strong chance of winning if it meets key requirements. Many nations have responded by establishing bids. Kenya Kenya announced in early 2005 that it had the intention of bidding for the 2016 Summer Olympics, likely to be held at its capital, Nairobi. This would make it only the third African country (after South Africa and Egypt) to launch a serious bid for the Games. However, Jacques Rogge has said that Kenya would have to make significant improvements to its infrastructure if such a bid were to be taken seriously. Nairobi and Kenya have limited experience in organizing large-scale international sporting events: to date, the last time Kenya organized such a large event was in 1987 when Nairobi organized the 4th All-Africa Games. South Africa According to agency reports, a South African city, most likely Cape Town, is considering a bid. Given that South Africa will host the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Rogge's eagerness for either Africa and/or South America to host an Olympic Games and the potential strength of another bid from Cape Town (Cape Town was on the candidate city shortlist for the 2004 Olympics), some are very optimistic about South Africa's prospects of hosting the Olympic Games in the near future. The city of Durban has also expressed an interest in hosting the 2016 Olympics.
