Zuma Confident About World Cup's Long Term Legacy

South African President Jacob Zuma is promoting the long-term physical legacy of the 2010 World Cup, promising that the event will bring about a major countrywide improvement to the nation's infrastructure.

In an interview with the UK's Financial Times published on Thursday, Zuma said the government planned to invest more than R800 billion in infrastructure after the soccer tournament finished, as Africa's largest economy continues to expand economic activity.

The development programme for the next three years will include power stations, roads and dams.
