Safa vote unanimously to dismiss Nokonyane
Safa Vice President Chief Mwelo Nokonyane has been dismissed for taking the football body to court.
JOHANNESBURG - Delegates at the South African Football Association ( Safa) annual congress have unanimously decided to remove Safa Vice President Chief Mwelo Nokonyane from his position.
Nokonyane has been dismissed for twice taking the football body to court.
More than two hundred delegates raised their hands to support the motion of removing him as Safa Vice President.
Citing a South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) resolution, lawyer Norman Arendse stated that anyone who takes the body to court should be expelled from the organisation.
Arendse added that Nokonyane should have exhausted measures within the organisation and should not have turned to the courts.
Nonkonyane was suspended by Safa in October last year after saying Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund should be suspended if the national team didn't win the African Nations Championship.
Earlier today Safa announced a profit of R10 million at its AGM in Sandton this afternoon.
