17 March 2018 – As the South African Football Association (SAFA) prepares to go for the Elective Congress next Saturday, 24 March 2018, the following issues need to be addressed effectively.

  • That the elections will go ahead as agreed by the SAFA Congress on Saturday, 24 March 2018 and no other member, outside or within football, can decide otherwise.
  • That the continued talk of Ace Ncobo is not an issue as the former referee is not a Presidential candidate anymore as he officially withdrew during a meeting brokered by a FIFA representative and COSAFA President, Dr Phillip Chiyangwa.
  • According to that agreement which was reached on Thursday, 15 March 2018; nothing in that accord talks of the elections being postponed.
  • The SAFA NEC met on Thursday afternoon to put together an Electoral Committee as prescribed by the SAFA Constitution and that Committee will monitor and oversee Saturday’s elections.
