Boxing CEO may be suspended

2013-09-19 17:14

The troubled Boxing SA (BSA) chief executive will be put on suspension tomorrow, two independent sources have told City Press.

“The BSA board and the department of sport and recreation have realised that all the controversy surrounding Qithi will divert our attention from the National Boxing Indaba (NBI) and the only way was to suspend him,” said a senior source in boxing administration who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Contacted for comment, the department’s spokesperson, Paena Galane, said the BSA CEO was not suspended.

“The DG (Alec Moemi) is meeting with the chairperson of BSA today and the BSA board is meeting tomorrow to consider the Moffat Qithi matter,” added Galane.

Another source revealed that Qithi’s suspension was likely to be followed by his axing following damning allegations made against him in the South Gauteng High Court this week.
