JOHANNESBURG - The newly appointed administrator of Athletics South Africa (ASA), Zola Majavu, now faces the tough task of stabilising the organisation.

It was announced over the weekend that ASA would be placed under administration.

The troubled organisation has been hit by problems over the past few months with leadership battles and infighting continuing.

Majavu, who served as former chair of the disciplinary committee at the PSL, has been given the tough task of stabilising the sinking ASA ship.

This decision was taken during South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee's (Sascoc) general meeting at the weekend.

Sascoc CEO Tubby Reddy confirmed that every single ASA board member was suspended.

Meanwhile, Reddy's position at the helm of Sascoc remained intact despite calls from Safa for disciplinary action to be taken against him.

The footballing body also remains under the spotlight, with Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula tabling a report that he will present to government looking into recent match fixing allegations.
