Soccer World Cup 2010

 

Peter Mokaba Complex (Polokwane)

The Polokwane municipality have decided to build a new stadium, confusingly named the "Peter Mokaba Complex", adjacent to the existing Peter Mokaba stadium. The Peter Mokaba stadium is named after Peter Mokaba of the African National Congress, who coined the phrase "Kill the Boer, Kill the Farmer" and was an AIDS denialist . Mokaba died at the age of 43 (rumoured to be from AIDS).
