Cape Town Street Vendors Pushed Out for Fan Park

More than 300 street vendors in Cape Town' Grand Parade area have been instructed to leave the area beginning May 1, and not return until after the World Cup is over. They are being removed to make room for a fan park.

"According to the host-city agreement, the city is legally obligated to provide a stadium and a fan-fest area," said Thembinkosi Siganda, Cape Town's director of economic and human development.

"After a location analysis the city identified the Grand Parade as a fan-fest area and this was approved by Fifa."
