S Africa still awaiting World Cup dividends

FIFA had hoped football would unite a country that is still racially divided.

    FIFA, foorball's governing body, hoped it would leave a lasting legacy in South Africa after the country successfully hosted the World Cup last year.

    Sports academies were opened before the World Cup in order to wean away young boys from crime and others vices and bring about positive change. However, academies that are not supported by FIFA are facing problems due to lack of resources.

    It has to be seen how football would unite a country that is still racially divided and change communities for the better.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
