Should Tokyo contest the Fifa presidency?
Arsenal vs Leicester City (Emirates Stadium, 1pm) Aston Villa vs Liverpool (Villa Park, 4pm) Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur (Etihad, 6pm)
. Carry on
Yes, he must contest, irrespective of Confederation of African Football (CAF) support.
Anything can happen Matlala, Gauteng
He must go ahead. If Africa doesn’t back him, that doesn’t mean he has to pull out. Anything can happen, as the voting is secret.
No chance Ismail M Moolla, KwaZulu-Natal
Tokyo does not stand a chance against Sheikh Salman Bin Ibrahim al-Khalifa, who has the backing of CAF for the Fifa presidency. He must throw in the towel. He must not make a fool of himself.
Better use your money elsewhere Des, KwaZulu-Natal
Tokyo Sexwale is not a son of the African soil. His money will be put to better use in poverty alleviation programmes, eg, the drought in North West.
Onele Zembe, Mthatha, Eastern Cape
I believe he should bow out. Having read the news in our country and in Africa, it is very clear that he has no support and, therefore, it should be evident even to him that there is no way he can win the race.
Maybe because he has no football admin experience it has made it difficult for the man to be able to read the situation and, as a result, made him believe in miracles.
I strongly believe he should give up before tarnishing his name.
Fight on George Khunou, via SMS
As a patriot of South Africa and an African, I feel strongly disappointed by my African brothers and sisters for failing to support one of our own, despite all the excuses they are giving us. I don’t buy it, period. Our brother should go and stand in the race like a wounded soldier. Tokyo, don’t pull out, our brother.
Not shocked Lucky Gouwe, Midrand, Gauteng
He is the only man in the whole of Africa who had the guts to challenge for Fifa president. Not even the CAF president had the courage to do that. The only problem here is that he is a South African. I am not shocked that CAF does not support him.
Secret vote Solly Kodisa, North West
Tokyo should continue because it is not only CAF members who will vote, and people vote for who they want.
Nonentity Senzo Kuzwayo, KwaZulu-Natal
Tokyo Sexwale banked on throwing Madiba’s name around. He is a nonentity in soccer. He must pull out.
Nothing to lose Mbuyie, Cape Town, Western Cape
Tokyo can carry on being a candidate because there’s nothing he’s going to lose and he’s doing it voluntarily. Let’s just sit back and watch him.
Pull out B Mshengu, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal
Tokyo must pull out. I don’t even know what he was trying to do, as he knows nothing about soccer.
He has an aura Free State
CAF can only support a person who is going to protect those top few individuals and keep the sad, poor state of affairs at CAF.
Tokyo is an administrator and his aura will certainly change Fifa for the better. Those few elites in CAF who want to maintain the status quo and turn our football structures into royal family-like structures are threatened by his candidature.
