Home Affairs minister Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma says her department has put plans in place to minimise the entry of thugs in the country during the FIFA 2010 Soccer World Cup.
Addressing parliamentarians in Cape Town yesterday Dlamini Zuma said they are rolling out a new movement control system at all airports across the country.
She also said plans are in place to have her department’s staff pre-screen soccer fans in several other countries.
Meanwhile the labour department has announced that it has embarked on a Child labour education and awareness campaign in the Western Cape “in light of the coming 2010 FIFA World Cup, where kids will have a month long holiday and run a risk of being used as labourers,”.
The campaign which began on May 04 will run till June 5 and aims to create greater awareness about regulations on child labour, educate the community about the acceptable forms of child labour as well as to clarify the legal age at which children are eligible to work and under what conditions.
