Starting at Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown, the procession made its way to Maponya Mall in Soweto, joined by South African celebrities Arthur, Chomee, Slikour and Sugarmaxx.The people of Johannesburg were able to join the procession along the way, with prizes to be won.“We encourage South Africans to be great hosts,” says Brand South Africa chief executive Miller Matola. “Let’s show the world our warmth, friendliness and love of the game. We should all fly the flag, sing the national anthem with pride, learn the Diski Dance and celebrate Football Fridays.“Bring along your Diski Dance moves, as well as your knowledge about all things football. Most of all though, bring all your uniquely South African passion and energy.”The People’s Bus provided an interactive 10-minute tour including Fifa World Cup team facts and trivia, foosball table fun and a mini cinema showing unforgettable moments from previous tournaments. On exiting the bus, good luck messages that will be posted on the Brand South Africa and Bafana Bafana websites can be added to the bus message board.About the International Marketing Council of South Africa (Brand South Africa)The International Marketing Council of South Africa (IMC) was established in August 2002 to help create a positive and compelling brand image for South Africa. At that time, the world was unsure about what to think of South Africa, with many different messages being sent out by various sources. These did very little to build the country’s brand and it was evident that to attract tourism and investment there was a need to co-ordinate marketing initiatives to make them more effective.This led to the creation of the IMC, whose main objective is the marketing of South Africa through the Brand South Africa campaign. There are many benefits to having a consolidated brand image, with the most important being that a consistent Brand South Africa message creates strategic advantages in terms of trade and tourism for the country in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
A woman in her 20s was allegedly tortured and raped by five persons, including a doctor and a suspended police constable, in the city, the police said on Thursday.The accused left the woman in a semi-naked state on Agra road here on Wednesday, they said. The woman alleged that she was tortured and gang-raped on Tuesday night, they added. “A case has been registered against five persons — Kapil Sharma, Deepesh Chaturvedi, Dr Anurag and two others who are unidentified,” DCP (East) Rahul Jain said. The DCP said the case is being probed from all angles.Previous rape case The woman had lodged a case of rape against Mr. Sharma, who was then a police constable, at the Jyoti Nagar police station in 2018. She alleged that Mr. Chaturvedi, who posed as an official of the State Human Rights Commission, assured her of getting Mr. Sharma arrested. However, when she did not find any official in the SHRC by the name, she reached Mr. Chaturvedi’s residence where she was allegedly raped and tortured on Tuesday. An FIR was lodged under Sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 342 (wrongful confinement) and 376-d (gang-rape) of the IPC. “The suspended police constable has been detained and is being interrogated,” Mr. Jain said. The woman has been admitted to a hospital, he said.
