Popular South African medico Victor Ramathesele is back in the local soccer limelight after almost a decade in limbo.
The former Bafana Bafana doctor has been roped in by the 2010 World Cup Local Organising Committee (LOC) as a consultant.
Ramathesele is consulting in the health and disaster management category, which is directed by LOC general manager of operations Dennis Mumble.
Health and disaster management is under the competitions division, which includes event management, volunteers, transport and host city management.
Ramathesele, who also presents a Sunday television programme dealing with health issues, started the job two weeks ago.
Last week, Ramathesele was also at the first 2010 World Cup Business Opportunities Conference at Emperors Palace in Kempton Park.
Attempts to speak to Mumble on the acquisition of Ramathesele as a consultant proved fruitless as he was reported to be in a meeting.
Ramathesele was also not available for comment.
But Tim Modise, LOC spokesman, confirmed that the man also known as "Mdokisi" in local circles was on board as a consultant.
Ramathesele, the longest-serving Bafana Bafana doctor, is also a Confederation of African Football (CAF) sports medicine instructor.
Also serving on the CAF sports medicine panel are Ephraim Nematswerani, the Under-23 team doctor; Banyana Banyana's Maggie Ramakgole and Durban's Shorty Moola.
Bafana manager Sipho Nkumane is a CAF administration instructor, while Serame Letsoaka and Styles Phumo are CAF zonal coaching instructors.
