Mbalula wants answers from Safa

By Ramatsiyi Moholoa | 2012-03-05 06:59:58.0 | COMMENTS [ 11 ]

SPORT and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula will finally get to discuss his burning concerns on the state of amateur soccer administration with Safa tomorrow.

Mbalula's concerns include Bafana Bafana's failure to qualify for the 2012 Afcon finals and actions meted out against people who misled the team into believing they had qualified. Mbalula also wants a full report from Safa on the 2013 Afcon finals preparations and the 2010 World Cup legacy trust funding.

Mbalula has already shared his concerns with the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee board, who appointed a committee to investigate Safa. The committee is led by Sascoc board member Mubarak Mahomed, who is not wanted by Safa. Also expected to be raised by Mbalula at tomorrow's meeting will be utterances by Safa executive committee member Mzwandile Maforvane, who has questioned the Safa probe into misreading the Afcon rules.

Yes Mr. Minister, the 5 million they paid that muthafukker for the name BB, the contract they signed with Adidas for the sale of BB t-shirts where the agent made 10 times more than the association, need I continue??? Bottom line blacks are good for nothing and the reference to my statement is Eskom, SABC, Telkom and the big one of course our very government...

One hopes this populist of a Minister will start solving SAFA issues and stop being Malema spokes person. SAFA is dead, needs to be burried out of its dust build a better football structure. These bunch of nobodies know nothing about football, they must go and take care of their fathers cattles at home, give those who have the love of sport chance to resurrect our football matherbody. The pupulist must stop telling us about political disaster that does not exist and solve soccer issues in particular. There will be no automatic qaulificationfor 2BAFA in 2014, come Brazil showpiese.

goodness, you're one very bitter and angry person! what has the colour of skin got to do with Mbalula wanting answers from SAFA???? what has that go to do with multi-racial companies listed above??? what do these companies got to do with SAFA???

and even your generalisation about melanin-rich people(black) just goes to show your deep hatred - what a waste of emotions!

I find the statement "Bottom line blacks are good for nothing.." very insulting and irresponsible given the race challenges we are facing. The success of SAFA or failure thereof has no bearing on how good or bad we may be as black people.

Fikile Mbalula is one of the few Ministers I have time for.
Very organised and he always looks at the bigger picture.
He is pro active and good for SA.
