Zakumi factory shut down


The Chinese factory that was contracted to make the Zakumi figurines for the 2010 Soccer World Cup has been told to stop production. FIFA’s Global Brands Group has withdraww its approval of the Chinese company, which, it seems, was paying its workers the equivalent of about R23 a day, reports Times Live.

Thank universe its not a South African company. That wouldn’t have been a good image to give in the run up to the Soccer World Cup.
