JOHANNESBURG - The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has banned several officials from all football-related activities at both national and international level, a statement said.

Three cases were decided concerning international friendly matches played in South Africa in 2010.

The investigation, initiated on November 2014, against former football officials of the South African Football Association were conducted by Cornel Borbély, chairman of the investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, in collaboration with the Fifa Security Division.

They relate to the proceedings against Lindile Kika, which were decided in October 2015.

Kika was banned from all football-related activities for six years by the adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee.

In this regard, committee decided that the former Safa official, Leslie Sedibe, had infringed several of Fifa's code of conduct and imposed a ban on him from taking part in any football-related activities for five years.

Furthermore, the former officials Steve Goddard and Adeel Carelse were both also found guilty and each received a ban of two years.

All bans come into force immediately.
