The Politics of FIFA

As the world enjoys the Soccer World Cup, the truths about FIFA were discussed at the National Arts Festival. The Thinkfest programme saw a team of researchers discuss the immense power FIFA has over countries hosting soccer World Cups, and the benefits they enjoy which may harm the progress of the host country. Litha Mpondwana compiled this report.

The Innovation Hub is a project which has been launched at this year’s National Arts Festival. An effort to spread wealth created by the festival, it sees four budding entrepreneurs from Grahamstown being afforded the opportunity of conducting small businesses during Arts Festival. Litha Mpondwana reports.
