The Reality amidst the fanfare at the 2010 FIFA World Cup

So is the FIFA WC '10 to benefit Africa in general or even the hosts for that matter?

I came across this piece in The Independent newspaper, where radical Sowetan columnist Andile Mngxitama said all Fifa is giving Africa is a month-long feel-good episode which will do little, long-term, to change perceptions or economic realities.

Makes for an interesting reflection into the rich governing body that boasts of "giving back to the game".
