S African hospitals in Cup setback

30th January 2007

Two new hospital projects in South Africa have been told construction will be postponed to help pay for the 2010 World Cup, which the country is hosting.

Two new 200-bed hospitals had been planned in De Aar and Upington, in the remote Northern Cape region.

Building would start up again during the 2008-2009 financial year, health officials said.

The government is already millions of dollars over budget on facilities related to the World Cup, a highly prestigious event for the host country.
