Cape Town - Ex-South African Football Association (SAFA) CEO Leslie Sedibe has issued his former employees with a R5m lawsuit, according the Sunday World.
Sedibe is currently serving a five year ban (and was fined over R300 000) from all football related events after allegedly fixing friendly Bafana Bafana games in 2010.
The ban was inflicted on Sedibe in March 2016 after news broke that South Africa allegedly paid R10m for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Sedibe, who now serves as the Proudly South African CEO, has accused SAFA officials including current CEO, Dennis Mumble of tarnishing his name and reputation.
In the court papers which Sedibe filed at the Gauteng High Court, the former CEO says that Mumble and the former head of referees, Lindile 'Ace' Kika, painted him as a corrupt official.
According to SAFA spokesperson Dominic Chimhavi said the association had not yet been served with court documents.
"We maintain our stance of not commenting on anything related to Bafana Bafana friendly matches leading up to the 2010 World Cup ," Chimhavi said
"We will get our lead from FIFA on this matter.”
