Johannesburg - Olympic chief Tubby Reddy is unconcerned about reports that a vote of no confidence will be passed against him by the SA Football Association (SAFA) at a general council meeting in Johannesburg on Saturday.
Reddy, the CEO of the SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc), said on Friday it was not possible for a sports federation to oust him from his post.
"It's not possible, by law, to pass a motion of no confidence against me at a general meeting," Reddy said.
"I'm an employee of Sascoc, not a board member."
Reddy believed Safa officials, facing a judicial inquiry into allegations of match fixing, were trying to deflect attention away from themselves.
Sascoc had also reacted to an anonymous letter claiming widespread corruption in the football body, which was dropped off at Sascoc's offices last year and later handed to the Hawks.
"As soon as you address the federations with issues regarding money, they try and redirect the attention away from themselves," Reddy said.
"What is important to understand is that Sascoc has to act in a certain way, and we can't turn a blind eye."
Reddy did not believe a letter addressed to him from SAFA CEO Dennis Mumble, which called for a vote of no confidence against the Sascoc boss, had been approved by the Safa national executive committee (NEC).
"The question we must ask is whether the SAFA NEC is even aware of this motion," Reddy said.
"The NEC would know that it's not possible to pass this motion against the CEO at a general meeting."
Mumble was unavailable for comment on Friday.
Apart from the Safa match-fixing inquiry, and various other matters that needed to be addressed at the general meeting, Reddy said the ongoing concerns at Athletics SA (ASA) would also be discussed.
Six ASA board members, including vice-president Hendrick Ramaala and financial manager Terrence Magogodela, were suspended on Wednesday.
ASA president James Evans obtained an urgent interdict in the High Court in Pretoria, preventing board members from taking any further action in their attempt to remove him from his post, pending the result of an arbitration hearing.
This followed Evans' impeachment at an ASA special general meeting last month, which he believed had been called without board members following correct constitutional procedures.
