SAFA red flag for Sascoc
Kirsten Nematandani (Gallo)
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.
