In another twist involving the public protector’s office‚ the Minister of Co-operative Governance an.
Great soldiers will always die for their country irrespective of how unsatisfied they are with their commanders or their country.
Knowing very well that defeat for your country will also affect you, depending on what the people you are fighting against intend to do with your country and its inhabitants, you fight hard to protect both your country and anyone associated with you.
In this case Benni McCarthy has an issue with Safa and South Africa.
Yet the very same country is playing crucial games and he is invited to be part of the crusade by his coach as an attacker in the process of eliminating our opponents, Chad, Zambia and Congo.
For his own reasons, he chooses to dump the country. Rhee, Bhele and other players also have problems with Safa, but they honour their call-ups.
They know that their lives and those of millions of South Africans depend on their performance. Politics will always be there but I expect Benni to be humble and respond to his call-up.
I respect him for the type of football he plays for Rovers, but his handling of the Safa issue is losing him the public's respect. Benni must remember that he will not be a star forever.
We all know Safa will not publicly apologise, so this means he will never play for his country.
