SAFA want spy reports probe

Johannesburg - South African Football Association president Kirsten Nematandani has called for calm following newspaper reports that the head honchos of the local game are under surveillance.

The City Press revealed in its weekend edition that Danny Jordaan, Molefi Oliphant, Mandla Mazibuko and Leslie Sedibe were all targetted and had tracking devices planted in their cars without their consent.

However, it appears that financial director Gronie Hluyo had approved the installations despite the quartet's lack of knowledge, something which Nematandani is hoping to clear up with the help of CEO Sedibe as soon as possible.

"The CEO is working on that. We have trusted him with that and we are sure that he will come up with something understandable," Nematandani told The Daily Dispatch.

"We don't want to create a storm in a tea cup that's why we are allowing the processes to run inside SAFA and indeed that will happen.

"I personally told them that I don't want my car to be monitored. That's what I said because I didn't feel good and I needed to know who was managing that.

"But I don't want to begin to cast aspersions on this. It might happen that they had good intentions when they did that. Remember we have fleet cars that needed to be monitored.

"But what fell short here is that the guys didn't apply their minds when doing this. Nobody should be monitored.

"We will wait to hear what the purpose of the monitoring was."
