SAFA 'owe' sangoma R90 000

Johannesburg - A sangoma claims the South African Football Association (SAFA) owes him R90 000 for providing the "magic" to beat France in the 2010 Soccer World Cup, the Daily Sun reported on Tuesday.

S'bonelo Madela said Bafana Bafana would not win any matches until he got his money, hinting he was responsible for the team's failure to go through to the Africa Cup of Nations finals on Saturday.

"If the national soccer team want to start winning, the SAFA bosses must settle their debt with me first," Madela was quoted as saying.

SAFA vice-president Mwelo Nonkonyane confirmed it had used Madela's services, but said he had already been paid.

Neither Nonkonyane nor SAFA spokesperson Morio Sanyane and Gary Mojela could be reached for comment.
