...This is not the fo­rum – Gideon Mthembu

Sunday Observer - - SPORT - THLETICS –

AEswati ni Ath­let­ics As­so­ci­a­tion (EAA) Pres­i­dent Gideon Mthembu says teams were out of or­der to call out a vote of no c on­fi­dence at the An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing (AGM).

The pres­i­dent said this when an­swer­ing to is­sues raised by the teams, with some teams call­ing for his res­ig­na­tion, along­side his ex­ec­u­tive.


“I would have failed dis­mally in my du­ties if I were to al­low teams to even raise a VOC. We need teams to be ex­pe­ri­enced for such meet­ing and do what is ex­pected of us. They can do that in proper fo­rums, not to­day,” he said

The pres­i­dent fur­ther high­lighted the two prob­lems in the sport.

“We have two ma­jor prob­lems, the first be­ing the is­sue of Elec­tronic Tim­ing (ET) and the sec­ond be­ing the is­sue of venues.

“Somhlolo is not wor­thy at the mo­ment and Mavuso doesn’t have the ET tech­nol­ogy any­more,” said the pres­i­dent.
