NAFSA: No Confidence In Dr Jordaan

NAFSA Call For Vote Of No Confidence On The SAFA Sitting President Dr. Danny Jordaan

By Ryan Gordon - Mar 10, 2018 10:01 AM
The National African Football Supporters Association (NAFSA) have called to immediately pass a vote of no confidence on the SAFA sitting President Dr. Danny Jordaan and his leadership, by supporting #JORDAANMUSTFALL.
 
 
NAFSA’s call comes a few hours after the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) confirmed that they had withdrawn from overseeing the SAFA Elective Congress, which are scheduled to take place on the 24th of March 2018.
 
NAFSA has also called on Parliament to immediately summon Dr. Danny Jordaan and his leadership, to account on what looks like a “gross violation” of the SAFA Statutes. 
 
“Dr. Danny Jordaan has once more failed South Africa’s football loving people. His failure to interpret SAFA Statutes is an indictment on his football career and the hard-earned gains of our football. It is a disgrace to learn that a President who is entrusted with a national asset of a calibre of SAFA, violates the statutes of such a crucial public entity. This also calls for the SAFA CEO Mr. Dennis Mumble to immediately step down. He did not only fail SAFA leadership but the entire football family. Part of his duties is to advise the leadership on matters of the statutes when they go astray. Clearly, he failed in executing his constitutional duties”, appealed NAFSA Secretary-General Siyabulela Makunga. 
 
“We are calling on all football loving people of South Africa, to rise up against the unfortunate ills of our football and immediately call for the removal of Dr. Jordaan and his leadership. His leadership did not only violate SAFA Statutes, they have incrementally become a group of demagogues who have squashed all forms of democracy in the running of our beautiful game replacing it with intimidation and victimization. South Africa deserves a better, a leadership that respects and understands its statutes and the will of the people”, Makunga argued. 
 
On Friday afternoon, the media reported that the IEC (Electoral Commission of South Africa) national spokesperson Ms Kate Bapela confirmed that the commission will no longer oversee the SAFA elections until they resolve various issues. “I can confirm that we have withdrawn from the elections of Safa to allow them to deal with their own internal issues‚” she said.
 
It was also reported that former PSL general manager and Fifa referee Andile ‘Ace’ Ncobo‚ who is challenging incumbent Danny Jordaan for the position of Safa president‚ also released a statement on Friday quoting a letter he received from the IEC confirming their withdrawal from the elections.
 
Ncobo said that without an electoral committee‚ Safa was left with no option but to postpone the elections and “retrace their steps such that the election processes are correctly followed”.
 
“Article 4 (3) of the Electoral Code prescribes that the Electoral Committee must be elected at a general assembly at least six months before an elective congress. Since that is the first step to be performed‚ this means the election cannot take place earlier than six months‚” Ncobo said. “In a reply to one of my various emails‚ whose stated objective was to assist SAFA to realise that it had violated its own Statutes‚ Mumble replied‚ ‘The SAFA Congress took a unanimous decision to appoint the IEC as the Electoral Committee and they ran the 2013 elections without incident’.”
 
Ncobo further alleged that the elections had been brought back from September to March‚ by a 90 percent Safa vote last year‚ for “motives that had nothing to do with football”.
 
“We will follow this matter up to FIFA level, to ensure that justice is served to the football loving people of South Africa”, Makunga concluded.

Ace was given opportunity to run PSL and he failed and now he is trying to bring down Jordaan with the help of chief Nonkonyane.

What did you expect...Danny is an ANC member therefore he cannot read or interpret the constitution he is suppose to be custodian of in order to cling to power.

@Vhivha South Africa won the 2010 World Cup Bid, Our junoir teams as well as women's teams are consistently qualifying for global tournaments something that was not happening before him, he took over when Bafana lost all their sponsors because of corruption but under his leadership our national team have sponsors and technical supplier from Nike. As I've said there are shortfalls like the one you've mentioned about the moneis that were taken to CONCACAF & replay of WC qualifier against Senegal. Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality loss have nothing to do with football. "Jordan must fall" campaign can get my support only if it is based on his failure and violation of constitution not to campaign for certain candidate disadvantaging others

Steve Khompela must leave coaching and join a sporting structure to qualify to be at SAFA. We need him to study and interpret the rules and regulations pertaining to all sporting activities. This is further envisaged by what happened when we thought we qualified at one stage. The issue of Ndoro and now the issue in question regarding the Presidency.

@The Ghost himself In football, there are no free gifts, last season you occupied position 11 on the log, it was not by default you deserved that position 11. Your team has to work very hard to be a champion not by free gifts

@Sobz Ndabs Jordaan is a born pathological loser, he handed Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality to Trollip of DA with a silver platter. He took money from SAFA coffers and handed it to his cronnies abroad, our Mzantsi lacks infrastructure but still this loser is taking money out. What have Jordaan reality have done and achieved for Mzantsi?

I so wish that Makhunga and his friends are doing whatever they're doing for the benefit of football not in support of a particular candidate. It's true that sometimes Jordan shows signs of incompetence, but why only now when elections are around the corner? When we're criticising we also need to reflect to the gains we achieved under Jordan's leadership & agree that there are shortfalls

Jordan was deployed by Anc to safa after he lost at Buffalo City to DA so he won't move at safa. He is Mzazi's Hayatou.

I lost confident on him after he accepted Fifa ruling of Bafana replay against Senegal. This man is weak n old, he must step down. I will support Radebe or Ace Ngcobo
