ANC could drop sport quotas
Johannesburg - The ANC was in favour of dropping sport quotas for a performance scorecard to monitor transformation targets for sports federations and bodies, the Sunday Times reported.
In a discussion document, transformation in sport since 1994 had been deemed "unsuccessful" by the ruling party.
The scorecard would allow a sports body "to measure where it is in its transformation journey," said the document as reported by the newspaper.
The ANC was reported to believe that the debate on transformation was often emotional, over-simplified and misunderstood.
The document said the department of sport should implement grassroots-based initiatives to aid development, talent identification and lead to the eventual abandonment of the quota system.
It stated that structural changes should take place within municipalities to streamline the development process.
The newspaper reported Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula had argued for the scrapping of quotas, with development focused at school level.
