The elections of the vice presidents were also concluded, with Chief Mwelo Nonkonyana, Lucas Nhlapo and Elvis Shishana getting the nod, while Mazibuko had withdrawn from the race.

An earlier Tweet from SAFA read, "Mandla Mazibuko indicating he is withdrawing from the Safa Vice President position as voting for the VPs continues."

They then confirmed the outcome, adding, "Safa Vice Presidents Chief Mwelo Nonkonyana, Lucas Nhlapo, Elvis Shishana."
