African Football Shorts: The food vendor


Miriam Balang is a food vendor who lives in an area called 17 houses, around 100 metres from Johannesburg's Ellis Park Stadium.

She is frustrated with the local council as they will not allow her to sell food to spectators during the World Cup.

Miriam is usually able to sell food during international sporting events but is now within the FIFA zone where it will be banned.
