Majavu put in charge of ASA
Advocate Zola Majavu is now responsible for leading ASA following the board’s suspension.
JOHANNESBURG - Advocate Zola Majavu was put in charge of Athletics South Africa (ASA) after the embattled sports body was placed under administration by the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Committee).
Majavu was appointed as interim administrator while all members of the current ASA board were suspended.
He previously served as the chair of the disciplinary committee at the Premier Soccer League (PSL).
Sascoc believed Majavu was the perfect person to help steady the sinking ASA ship.
The committee's CEO Tubby Reddy said the decision was in the best interest of the athletes.
"The board has resolved to ensure that the athletes involved are not prejudiced as a result of infighting among elected members."
Reddy was in the spotlight this week with calls being made by the South African Football Association (Safa) that disciplinary action be taken against him.
However, those that want Reddy ousted were left disappointed following Saturday's meeting. The CEO remained firmly in his position.
Meanwhile, Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula was tabling a report that he would give to government to look into recent football match fixing allegations against several Safa executives.
