JOHANNESBURG - Eyewitness News is in possession of an explosive letter revealing the South African Football Association (Safa)'s lack of confidence in the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) CEO Tubby Reddy as well as a move to oust him from his job.

The letter, from Safa CEO Dennis Mumble to Reddy, contains several complaints to be tabled at Saturday's general meeting of the umbrella sports body.

This is the latest twist in ongoing clashes between Sascoc and several of its affiliates.

The hard hitting letter from Mumble to Reddy is dated 26 March 2013 and lists multiple complaints against the Sascoc CEO.

It also proposes a motion of no confidence in him.

Mumble has confirmed he sent the letter.

Included in the list of grievances from Mumble are complaints that Sascoc publicly handed over a dossier to the Hawks and conspired with the media without going to Safa first, reneged on an agreement regarding an inquiry into match fixing and is interfering in Safa's affairs.

Mumble said Sascoc is guilty of bullying its affiliates.

"They just think they can wake up in the morning and take a complaint from anyone and decide that they want to intervene."

Eyewitness News understands other member organisations have also expressed unhappiness with Reddy's leadership.
