Safa calls protesting regions to hearings

THE fallout from last year's Safa elections shows no sign of abating.

THE fallout from last year's Safa elections shows no sign of abating.

Safa has summoned protesting regions to a disciplinary committee.

However, Sowetan has been reliably informed that the regions have in return responded by referring the case to their legal advisers.

A source close to the regions said Safa had sent letters to individual executive members, informing them about the hearings, to take place on February 6 and February 7.

This comes days after Albert Mokoena, who had previously been linked to the group of dissidents, distanced himself from the group.

The source said: "We are surprised at this decision by Safa. We had vowed - in the presence of President Jacob Zuma - to suspend any action about this matter. He made it clear that with the World Cup just months from now, we should put our differences aside."
