South Africa survives by the skin on its teeth as striking workers and infrastructure come perilously close to failure

SHOOT: The 15th of June ought to provide a completely different test. A powerful cold front is moving across the entire country, with rain. This will test the Gauteng electricity grid, particularly for the 8pm game featuring Brazil against North Korea. I have a feeling we're always one game away from disaster.

Cape Town - In one of the biggest security nightmares to hit the World Cup to date, police had to be rushed to the Cape Town stadium on Monday after a walk-out by security officials.
More than a thousand law enforcement officials converged on the stadium, some escorted by flying squad vehicles, sirens wailing.
A spokesperson for Cape Town City, Kylie Hatton, told News24 they realised on Monday afternoon that a problem was developing.
As a pre-emptive action, traffic police, metro police and SAPF officers from Gallows Hill station, which is the headquarters for the security operation at the stadium, were deployed at the stadium.
