If my memory serves me correctly Ndizani was used to transport the South African olympics team to Atlanta in '96. The colour scheme was applied for the flight and was never changed. The aircraft is currently sitting in the middle of Johannesburg International Airport looking quite forlorn.

Bobg is correct, the colour scheme had nothing to do with the Cape Town bid. I remember seeing Ndizani flying around over Cape Town before departing for Atlanta, escorted by 2 fighter jets, was an impressive sight flying round in front of Table Mountain!
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...
