SAFA want spy reports probe

2010-07-28 12:47

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."

    Irvin Khoza

    Storm in a teacup. Most probably company cars, insurance requires satellite tracking presto. Much ado about nothing! Highly doubt Jason Bourne is lurking around.

    If you have a luxury car in South Africa it would be stupid not to have a tracking device installed. Remember you get discount on insurance if you have this in your car or company car. This might be a storm in a tea cup!

    Really, what the hell is this? Can't people just get to work and work with no hidden agendas. What's this world coming to?

  • Soon to be disillusioned soccer fan! - 2010-07-28 13:45

    Common SAFA stop wasting time on drivel like this and tell us when and where we can buy tickets for the game on 11 August. If SAFA were only as concerned about the fans (who pay their fat cat salaries) as they are about rubbish like this soccer would be so much better off... just saying...

    "I personally told them that I don't want my car to be monitored". My foot....That car is a SAFA asset and needes to be monitored and for you own safety as well.

  • Safa4life - 2010-07-28 14:46

    Its all for a good course. They dont want them to record falsified km for SARS since they might want to enrich themselves. Also for their own security since they fight for leadership.

  • Ribs - 2010-07-28 15:06

  • Michael - 2010-07-28 16:20

    I think it is SARS. They have been lied to enough by these fat cats.

  • Sibuisiso - 2010-07-28 16:21

    I think SAFA are just trying to manipulate people with a hope of us hating Irvin and his crew.

  • Omakhala Njalo - 2010-07-28 16:52

    Now this is obvious that if you are insecure or don't know what you are doing. You will always complain and point fingers.Read the word SAFA in zulu then you will understand that nomathandana doesn't know administration of football but the whistle and now thinks with him having a Toy boy Lawyer beside him will make him a good administrator. Who is fooling who?. The current SAFA regime must join COPE maybe they will manage to cope.

    Volunteers of the FIFA 2010 World Cup has not even being paid yet...where is the money??? Not even the president recognised the hard work done by these volunteers...SA is corrupt & I will never ever serve as a volunteer again.
