No service delivery during the World Cup

An interim ministerial committee says service delivery protests during the World Cup are unlikely.

Sports Minister Makhenkesi Stofile told journalists people had the right to protest. But the committee believed residents would be caught up in soccer fever and would not use the opportunity to disrupt the sporting event. Stofile added that an impending national strike by the taxi industry was not their concern.

Meanwhile Newsflash News Agency reports Fifa says the World Cup in South Africa has helped push the world soccer body's revenues past the billion dollar mark for the first time.

The non profit-making organisation says it made a 196-million-dollar surplus in 2009, as revenues soared to one-point-06-billion-dollars.

Fifa president Sepp Blatter says the market trusts South Africa, referring to lucrative television and marketing deals.
