Safa’s Nonkonyana to appear before disciplinary committee

2013-11-08 09:00

Suspended South African Football Association (Safa) vice president Chief Mwelo Nonkonyana will appear before a disciplinary committee on Wednesday next week.

This was revealed by Safa CEO Dennis Mumble.

“The hearing has been set down for the 13th of November,” Mumble told City Press.

Nonkonyana was suspended last month after his utterances that Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund must do the honourable thing and resign if he did not reach the final or win the African Nations Championships (CHAN) that will be hosted here in January.

The Safa emergency committee felt his words had brought the organisation into disrepute and recommended he be suspended.

This decision was endorsed by the national executive committee (NEC) and executed by Mumble.

His suspension also saw him being relieved of his duties as chairperson of the CHAN local organising committee.

The position is now occupied by former Safa president Dr Molefi Oliphant.

“I am busy supplying him with all the documents he has requested to prepare for his defence,” said Mumble.

He also revealed preparations for the two-day lekgotla the NEC decided at their first meeting must be held on November 29 and 30, were still on course.

“I am just tying up the logistics,” he said.

On another matter, Mumble said a task team had been set up to look at what should happen to the two Safa Mercedes Benz cars that were driven by former president Kirsten Nematandani and vice president Mandla “Shoes” Mazibuko.

Nematandani was not nominated, while Mazibuko lost out at the elections on September 28.

“They proposed to buy the cars and a task team was set up to look at the best ways to dispose of the cars as they are Safa’s property,” said Mumble.

He said it had been agreed they keep the cars until a decision was taken.
