First On EWN: Sascoc CEO responds to Safa letter
Safa launched an attack on Sascoc CEO in which it proposed a motion of no confidence in his leadership.
JOHANNESBURG - South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) Tubby Reddy found himself in hot water after the South African Football Association (Safa) launched a scathing attack, proposing a motion of no confidence in him.
This is contained in an explosive letter which can be found at the bottom of this page.
Reddy has defended himself saying he has to answer to the Sascoc board and no one else.
"I've been doing my job. Maybe you should ask some of the national executive committee members of Safa themselves who have looked through at such a letter being sent to us, isn't that interesting?"
He also responded by saying those complaining were disgruntled.
In the letter, Safa CEO Dennis Mumble listed numerous complaints against Reddy and proposing the motion be tabled at a general meeting on Saturday.
Included in the list of grievances from Safa's 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 has confirmed he sent the letter.
"For the most part we find things out through the media and that is incorrect. He doesn't deserve the position as CEO, it is not acceptable. If you have something to do or something to say you call us first."
Mumble added 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.
This latest confrontation involving Sascoc and its affiliates will come to a head at Saturday's general meeting.
