Open letter to South Africa’s students‚ universities and government‚ represented by Minister in the .
It is sad to hear that some want the PSL's negotiating team to receive R50million commission. If this is true, one is probably looking at around R80million, after adding the commission to clinch the Supersport deal.
I believe that the committee must be rewarded, but not to the tune that has been suggested. This is a clear case of bad corporate governance. I share Finance Minister Trevor Manuel's, pictured, and other club bosses' opposition to all this. For the record, how much did Irvin Khoza and his crew get for bringing the 2010 Soccer World Cup to South Africa?
We need transparency in this matter so that people will stop the accusations about greed.
I agree with those who say that the money should be used elsewhere, perhaps to develop young players. We know that most companies want to get involved in 2010 and all its advantages so the negotiations could not have been all that difficult.
They just had to agree and accept what was being offered. And now they want to give the impression that they worked hard for it - which we know is a fallacy, comrades.
