Read: Confirmed: SAFA Elective Congress Postponed

Yesterday SAFA issued a statement confirming that the elective congress to elect a new SAFA president was postponed due to a unanimous decision undertaken by the NEC in order to address any issues that may impact the credibility of the congress.

Now reliable sources have indicated that members of SAFA’s NEC are divided over the new Electoral Committee. Though it was initially believed that all members unanimously agreed to the new Electoral Committee following the withdrawal Electoral Commission of South Africa, indications are that there are those who are opposing the decision which has resulted in the postponement of the electoral congress.

As things stand current SAFA President Danny Jordaan stands unopposed for a second term as president following the withdrawal of former PSL referee Ace Ncobo from the presidential race earlier this month.

Ncobo’s withdrawal stemmed from his dispute over the fact that the elective congress was not being conducted in an ethical manner in accordance to SAFA’s statutes resulting in the withdrawal of the IEC.

SAFA are yet to confirm the new date to conduct the elective congress.

Your lack of in-depth reporting on this is worrying and raises serious questions about your credibility as SAs source of football related matters. The tone of this piece seems to ignore the fact that these old men are breaking the rules and only eager to find out when the elections will be held. That's not the issue here. You guys, don't seem to appreciate the platform we as fans have afforded you. You are failing in your mandate to inform and provide clarity. Could it be that you are also captured?
