Cape Town - Suspended Bafana Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba will have to wait another week to learn his fate, as his disciplinary hearing has once again been postponed.

According to reports, Mashaba was set to appear at a South African Football Association (SAFA) disciplinary hearing last week, but it was postponed until Thursday (December 1).

Then, after Thursday's proceedings, the 66-year-old requested a further postponement

SAFA last month suspended Mashaba after Bafana's 2-1 victory over Senegal in their 2018 Soccer World Cup qualifier.

It was reported that the national coach clashed with SAFA president, Danny Jordaan, just before his post-match interview.

He subsequently missed South Africa's 1-1 draw with Mozambique, with assistant coach Owen Da Gama taking temporary charge.

SAFA communications head Dominic Chimhavi took to Twitter to confirm that the hearing has been postponed to next week, as the national coach needed more time to gather his defence:

"DC involving @BafanaBafana coach has been postponed to next week. Coach requested more time to prepare his case. No further media engagement."

No date has been finalised.
