THE leadership of Athletics South Africa and Minister of Sport Makhenkesi Stofile met in Cape Town on September 1 to brief him on the Caster Semenya developments.

THE leadership of Athletics South Africa and Minister of Sport Makhenkesi Stofile met in Cape Town on September 1 to brief him on the Caster Semenya developments.

At that meeting, ASA president Leonard Chuene asked Stofile for guidance on the much publicised Semenya gender verification tests.

This emerges after Stofile announced on Metro FM on Friday that he had never heard anything from the ASA leadership despite writing letters to them for a report on Semenya.

Also present at that meeting was Butana Komphela, sports and recreation portfolio committee chairperson, and ASA general manager Molatelo Malehopo.

It is unclear what was discussed at the meeting.

ASA said they would personally deal with Stofile, pictured, after expressing concerns that certain confidential information ended up in the hands of journalists.

The Semenya saga has also resulted in tensions between close friends Harold Adams and Wilfred Daniels, who are reported not to be on speaking terms. Adams is the IAAF medical commission member, while Daniels worked for ASA as a team coordinator until he resigned two weeks ago.
