Stephen Chan: World Cup in South Africa Wed, 2010-06-09 03:00

Professor Stephen Chan talks about the Football World Cup in South Africa and its impact in the local politics, including the dynamic relationship between former Presidents Mandela and Mbeki, and current President Jacob Zuma. He also comments on his recent visit to Johannesburg, and the way transport links are being finalised just two weeks before the Cup kicks off, highlighting the construction of a rapid transit link which will allow visitors to bypass Alexandra ? one of the most violent slum areas in the city- and go straight to Sandton, the wealthiest side of the city.
