Chiefs Mwelo Nonkonyana is in the process of trying to interdict the SAFA elective congress scheduled for March 24. 

“When Chief Nonkonyana accepted an invitation from the members of SAFA to stand for nomination, the leadership of SAFA embarked on a dirty campaign to intimidate and issue propaganda that he is not eligible. In order to be able to continue with their false propaganda, they filed an application to postpone the finalisation of the court case that had been instituted by the former Vice President,” read a statement from Nonkonyana’s campaign manager, Sisa Majola. 

“We wish to state that members nominated Chief Nonkonyana and when they submitted the nomination forms with auditors KPMG, they found members of the SAFA National Executive and decided not to submit the nomination forms. We contest the false propaganda that Dr Danny Jordaan was nominated by all 52 regions of SAFA, more so with some of the regions still to have elections, and at an appropriate time, we will produce evidence supporting this.  

“Chief Nonkonyana has instructed his lawyers to institute an urgent application to interdict the holding of the elections until the pending case against SAFA is finalised. We are also awaiting full feedback from world soccer body, FIFA, having submitted our concerns to them in writing last week,” read the statement.

“I have no doubt in my mind that the decision to hold elections early coupled with the conduct of SAFA officials was designed to manipulate electoral process and is riddled with gross violations of SAFA, CAF and FIFA Statutes. I am determined to make sure that the entire process is started afresh and is conducted in accordance with SAFA, CAF and FIFA statutes,” concluded Nonkonyana in a statement.

The whole country didn't want Zuma.Danny knows that football loving people don't want him,he still wants to be the safa president,is it bcoz of power,incentives,corruption and the rumours about that white lady.My advice to him is to stop contesting and leave football to be run by other ppl so that he can save his dignity. Even if he becomes a safa president ppl won't respect him anymore bcoz he will be a president with a dark cloud over him.He must respect himself and save his dignity.
