The German brand has therefore made it known that in the second half of 2009, 2% of its clothing lines will integrate cotton produced in Africa.

Lawsuit over ‘fake’ memorabilia

Ryan Giggs and his Manchester United team mates during a training session in South Africa last year. Manchester United Limited, which manufactures trade marked United memorabilia, says there has been a major increase in fake goods in the build-up up to the 2010 World Cup.

On Tuesday it will apply for a default judgment in the Cape High Court against a local store accused of selling branded soccer clothing. The shop owner has denied the allegations, saying he will defend the action in court.

Wind power project

South Africa’s state-run power utility Eskom plans to start operating wind turbines this year to boost the supply of electricity. It’s a welcome relief for organisers of the 2010 World Cup who have come under fire following rolling blackouts around the country last year. Eskom spokesperson Fani Zulu on Monday confirmed that 50 wind turbines will be erected over the next 12 months. Eskom, FIFA and the 2010 LOC have also established contingency plans to ensure that the tournament will not be affected. This includes the construction of ’pocket’ power stations at each stadium which will supply electricity 24 hours before each match to ensure that any power disruptions to the national grid will not impact on the tournament.
