Mayor halts construction of Cape Town stadium

Cape Town’s new executive mayor Helen Zille has stepped in to halt contract appointments for the building of a stadium in Green Point for the 2010 World Cup. Zille says the Council will wait for a comprehensive financial audit of the City's capacity to host the event before going ahead with the project. The Cape Times reports Zille as asking whether the stadium should be built while the poor people of Cape Town sit without essential services such as sewerage. Some 500-million rands for the stadium would come from the province, leaving it up to the city to fund the remaining billion.
