South African Football Association's Polokwane Local Football Association (Polfa) is pointing fingers at the Safa's Limpopo provincial representative Nakedi "N1" Lekota.

Polfa declared during a media briefing yesterday that they had no confidence in Lekota and the Capricorn regional leadership.

The media briefing that was to outline the association's preparations for the 2008/2009 season and suspensions of Abel Rakoma and Reginald Ledwaba, turned into a Polfa versus Lekota and Safa Capricorn region discussion.

"We do not have confidence in Lekota as he has interest in all the suspensions," Nare Sekwala, Polfa's chairman of referees said yesterd.

"He is the cause of all the problems and he is the one who allowed a rebel league [Bakone Football Association] to participate in the Metropolitan League play-offs at the end of last season.

"He does not attend our association's events, instead he places his friends in the local football associations," Sekwala said.

"He is trying to turn the association into a monarchy with him as king," Sekwala said.

"He must not think that the suspension of members is the solution to the problems.

"We have called for an audit in the regional financial affairs which we are confident will uncover the problems that are happening," he said.

Lekota declined to comment.
