SPCA: 'no' to slaughter on 2010 fields

2009-12-01 00:00

THE National Council of SPCAs (NSPCA) has asked to be part of discussions about the proposal to slaughter animals in the traditional manner at stadiums where matches will be held for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

In a statement released yesterday, Del Jones of the NSPCA said they do not condone or support the proposal.

Jones said they had held a meeting with South African Football Association head Kirsten Nematandani about the proposal.

“Via the media it was learned that the traditional slaughter had been supported by Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Sicelo Shiceka, to whom the NSPCA addressed a communication on November 11 requesting a meeting to discuss the matter.”

The NSPCA has now sent a letter to all role-players including Fifa, advising them that no response has been received from Shiceka.
