A unified South African Football Indaba, is one of the highlights to look forward in the new year, jointly organised by the Department of Sport and the South African Football Association.
Minister of Sports Nathi Mthethwa’s strong address to the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) annual general meeting on Saturday seems to have done the trick.
With only a week before the planned Football Indaba takes place, Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa has admitted that the Indaba won’t be the same without the presence of SAFA and its members.
The South African Football Association (SAFA) and the Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa are heading for a collision course.
Just after Bafana Bafana had lost their opening African Cup of Nations game against Ivory Coast 1-0 in Cairo, Egypt, Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa spoke about the Football Indaba that the country needed to have.
