You are here: Sport Fiks gevreet over SAFA
Sports minister, Fikile ‘Fiks’ Mbalula has had it up to here with the South African Football Association and has decided to take action with it.He has told them in no uncertain terms that he would use whatever is in his means to fix the beautiful game in Mzansi. Mzansi diski is in shambles and is in a state of 911.
But SAFA says unongekhe. They are saying that, according to FIFA protocol, politics cannot interfere with sports.
Fiks hit back with his famous razzmatazz saying that apha ekasi government will not be told by SAFA on what to do to fix things. This is not a banana republic, he said.
He says SAFA cannot act as judge and arbitrator all by itself. All along SAFA has been judging itself on what it terms internal issues. Fiks says enough is enough ke madoda.
He wants an investigation into accusations of match fixing involving our beloved Bafana Bafana. There are reports that certain games were fixed before the World Cup in 2010 held in Mzansi.
SAFA president, Kirsten Nematandani was suspended briefly regarding these allegations but later re-instated. Now the issue is back on the agenda again.
This matter is so serious that Fiks had to fly across the world to FIFA headquarters in Zürich to talk about this matter.
He admitted that he used tax payer’s money while suspended in the air. But diski followers won’t worry much about that, they just want the rot to be cleaned finish and klaar.
Heads are expected to roll once investigation is completed. Bafana Bafana didn’t even win the World Cup. They failed to qualify through to the group stages.
That entire match fixing in the end resulted to nothing. It has only brought shame to Mzansi diski. Mzansi has the honour of being the first country not to reach group stages as hosts.
