As the world cup is about to kick off in South Africa, it's timely to remember the plight of the street kids. It was formerly policy, in an attempt to clean up the streets and give the football-supporting public a good image of S. Africa, to gather the street kids up and bus them off to somewhere miles away. After a 6 week cessation of these round-ups there was another incident of it in May. It's been denied that the no-round-up policy has been abandoned and we must hope that is true.
