Boxing South Africa is broke

2011-07-01 08:52
Johannesburg - Boxing South Africa is bankrupt. BSA's executive board member Sakhiwo Sodo revealed the state of the national controlling body's finances,  reports the Sowetan.

Sodo said the estimated R5 million that was approved by then minister of sport Makhenkesi Stofile but given to BSA by current minister Fikile Mbalula went towards paying off the body's tax backlog with SARS.

BSA's debt to SARS is estimated to be around R8 million.

Mtya has since returned to BSA but this time as director of operations after the national body could not find grounds to charge him.
