SAFA red flag for Sascoc

Johannesburg - The SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee has expressed concern at the allegations that SAFA is bankrupt and about tensions among executive committee members ahead of the September elections.

According to the Sowetan website, the issue of SAFA's financial instability will be on the agenda when SAFA meets the Sascoc board.

In a letter to SAFA president Kirsten Nematandani, Sascoc CEO Tubby Reddy said their meeting will also deal with allegations of interference by the Football Transformation Forum (FTF), a structure used by the current SAFA leadership in the build-up to the 2009 elections.

The eagerly-awaited meeting will deal with the FIFA match-fixing report, which SAFA has decided to use following a decision at the weekend by the executive committee to set up an independent commission of inquiry to get to the root of the problem.

A damning dossier that was compiled by an anonymous person or people privy to the shenanigans at SAFA is also expected to be discussed. The document has been handed over to the Hawks but Nematandani said the dossier has been dismissed.

"The information I have received is that the Hawks are not doing an investigation because it lacks substance."

However, Sowetan has learnt the Hawks are working on the dossier as the compilers made it clear the alleged looting of Safa finances and equipment occurred after the 2010 World Cup Local Organising Committee board was dissolved in December 2010.
