Cape of Good Hope

On the Good Samaritan in Ravi Naidoo.

While kicking a ball from Signal Hill into the direction of Green Point’s new football stadium, Cape Town Mayor Dan Plato declares himself a proud Capetonian during the 100 days countdown ceremony to the fIfA 2010 world Cup. Meanwhile, he’s also giving direction to where the action – read the city’s energy and money - is going: football-wards. A bit further up the road the Design Indaba Conference & Expo has just closed its gates. Both alluring events - from head to foot - are the brainchild of ‘commercial activist’ Ravi Naidoo, another Capetonian who dreams aloud and well-awake about a better future for both his city and country through design… and football.
