Hawks Confirm ‘Advanced’ Investigation Into SAFA

The Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (Hawks) confirmed that an investigation into the South African Football Association is at an advanced stage. 

A report in the Daily Maverick on Monday suggested that the Hawks are investigating allegations of theft at SAFA, and while the Hawks would not divulge the names of the individuals involved, the publication reported that suspended SAFA national committee member Malesela Mooka confirmed that he had opened a case of theft against the association’s president, Danny Jordaan.

Mooka reportedly confirmed that a case of theft was opened at the Booysens police station last year.

Among other allegations, Jordaan allegedly inflated the purchase value of the Fun Valley Pleasure Resort from R30 million to R65 million which was reportedly bought by SAFA for his personal benefit.

It has also been alleged that the Legacy Trust Fund of R450 million, which was donated to SAFA by FIFA at the end of the 2010 World Cup in Msansi, is finished.

The money was meant for the development of football in the country.

Contacted for comment, Hawks spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Philani Nkwalase confirmed to the Siya crew that they are investigating allegations of theft at SAFA, although he was in no position to reveal the identities of those involved.

“We can confirm that the Hawks are investigating allegations of theft at SAFA, however the people of interest cannot be identified at this stage as no one has been charged yet,” he said.

“(It is) safe to say that our ongoing investigation is at an advanced stage. We therefore cannot divulge details of our probe, lest we compromise the investigation,” concluded Nkwalase.

Contacted for comment, SAFA CEO Tebogo Motlanthe sidestepped our attempts for comment and has not responded to the the allegations.
