SA creates World Cup ghettoes

SA has found a cosmetic quick fix to the problem of poverty and homelessness.”Thousands of homeless people are being forced off the streets of South Africa to hide the scale of poverty there from World Cup fans.More than 800 tramps, beggars and street children have already been removed from Johannesburg and sent to remote settlements hundreds of miles away.And in Cape Town, where England face Algeria on June 18, up to 300 have been moved to Blikkiesdorp camp where 1,450 families are crammed in a settlement of tin huts designed for just 650 people.
It is quite unlikely that any of the revenue generated by tourism,ticket sales,advertising etc is ever going to find it’s way to these who need it the most.
