Setshedi Sentenced For Match-Fixing

Former Bafana Bafana team manager Phil Setshedi has been sentenced to three years of imprisonment for match-fixing after being convicted last year.

 

Setshedi was found guilty for attempting to improperly influence the outcome of one of the Vodacom League Play-off matches in Cape Town in 2011. The former Orlando Pirates player was subsequently convicted on December 7.

 

In December, SAFA President, Kirsten Nematandani, was quoted on SAFA’s official saying that the conviction of Setshedi would send out a clear message to the other potential corrupt officials not to tarnish the name of the game.

 

“This is a strong statement to anyone who might intend to tarnish the good name of the sport through match fixing or other unsporting behaviour. In accordance with FIFA and SAFA’s zero tolerance to corruption and match fixing, we would like to warn other potential criminals that the long arm of the law would not spare you,” Nematandani told SAFA’s official website.
