Sports Minister Thulas Nxesi does the right thing

28 September 2017, 09:55
Over the past number of years, it has long been my opinion that not all is right with the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc).

There are a number of issues that have surfaced time-and-time again which a number of both the board and member federations of Sascoc have seemed to turn a blind eye to.

As as result, anyone (individuals and federations) who has raised such issues has seemingly been dealt with quite harshly by Sascoc even though such actions by SASCOC may appear not to be in line with current legislation.

Thus, it is no surprise to me to see the Minister of Sport and Recreation, Mr. Thulas Nxesi, announce on Wednesday, 23 August 2017 that a ministerial committee of inquiry will delve into a wide range of allegations of maladministration at Sascoc.

According to Jan Gerber of News24, "He said the inquiry into Sascoc was in response to numerous and serious allegations of poor governance, financial mismanagement and non-adherence to the Sascoc constitution, and the Sascoc board’s failure to respond to these matters.

Some of these matters had been reported in the media, and others were directed to his office from individual board members, federations and aggrieved individual."Minister Thulas Nexesi stated, "In the light of these serious allegations, I have decided to appoint a committee of inquiry – consisting of a retired judge, two additional members and a team leader for leading evidence."

Director General of Sport and Recreation Alec Moemi said, if there was "internal wrangling" at Sascoc, it could affect the preparations for next year’s Commonwealth Games, to held on Australia’s Gold Coast. This is indeed not a sprint, it is a marathon, and no doubt, a lot will come out in the months ahead.
