Cape Town - The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) has spent R2.9 million on investigating three of its top officials, parliament has heard. 


According to a report on the Sowetan LIVE website, SASCOC officials including president Gideon Sam appeared before the Sport and Recreation portfolio committee on Tuesday.

SASCOC CEO Tubby Reddy is the most high-profile official being investigated after he was suspended with full pay amidst sexual harassment allegations in July, while the other investigations are centred around CFO Vinesh Maharaj and senior manager Jean Kelly.

The war between Sam and Reddy has been brewing for months now and, according to what reportedly came out of parliament on Tuesday, there has been no finality reached in any of the above-mentioned investigations.  

"Two inquiries‚ by the minister and SASCOC‚ is wasting taxpayers' money which could be used to the betterment of sport in SA," the website quoted the DA's Tsepo Mhlongo as saying.
