The New Age (Free State) - - SPORT - NEVILLE KHOZA

MORE ex­plo­sive rev­e­la­tions are ex­pected to­day dur­ing the sec­ond day of the min­is­te­rial com­mis­sion of in­quiry into widerang­ing maladministration at the South African Sports Con­fed­er­a­tion and Olympic Com­mit­tee to­day in Jo­han­nes­burg.

This after the sit­ting on the first day saw wit­nesses re­veal some per­ti­nent is­sues dur­ing the in­quiry, which is be­ing led by re­tired judge Ralph Zul­man, as­sisted by vet­eran cricket ad­min­is­tra­tor Ali Bacher and labour law ex­pert Shamima Gai­bie.

Mul­ti­ple wit­nesses gave tes­ti­mony un­der oath to the com­mit­tee of in­quiry and are ex­pected to do so when others are called to tes­tify in the sec­ond day.

After the con­clu­sion of the first day on Mon­day, Zul­man said he had got the im­pres­sion from the wit­nesses that the sports govern­ing body was dys­func­tional.

“Of course, we are go­ing to have to hear the other side of the story. We are only con­cerned with the truth,” Zul­man said.

Dur­ing the first day of the sit­ting, wit­nesses who tes­ti­fied high­lighted how the as­so­ci­a­tion had made it dif­fi­cult for sport­ing codes to per­form ef­fi­ciently.


FAC­ING THE MU­SIC: For­mer Sas­coc CEO Tubby Reddy has come un­der crit­i­cism.
