Safa deny talk of hefty afcon bonuses

2012-05-05 00:00

JOHANNESBURG — The South African Football Association (Safa) has criticised reports suggesting that their senior officials will receive hefty bonuses for organising the Africa Cup of Nations on home soil next year.

The Safa leadership, which includes president Kirsten Nematandani, vice-presidents Mandla Mazibuko, Dr Danny Jordaan, Dr Irvin Khoza, Chief Mwelo Nonkonyana, Alpha Mchunu and CEO Dr Robin Petersen, released a statement condemning the recent media claims. “We are united in our condemnation of these reports,” said Nematandani in the statement.

“They seek to create divisions where there are none, and to falsely create an impression that Safa LOC (local organising committee) board members will profit from Afcon 2013.

“We have undertaken to investigate both the purported facts of these reports, as well as the source of the leaks … Strong action will be taken against anyone who is found to have been a part of these leaks and allegations.” — Sport24.
