SA squash & equestrian council suspended by SASCOC- 1 Aug 2011 00:00:00
The membership of Squash SA and the SA Equestrian Council has been suspended by the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) – following disputes of leadership.
SASCOC chief executive Tubby Reddy said: ‘In both instances we at SASCOC have documentation from two parties in each Federation containing issues of leadership dispute’.
‘Presidents have been removed from these National Federation's without following due process’.
‘We at SASCOC are taking a view of total non-tolerance when it comes to any manipulations and the pushing of individual or personal agendas in our national federations’.
‘We are working closely with the national sports ministry in this regard and indeed we are busy with the process of reviewing the administration of all our member federations’.
SASCOC will now have to investigate the two federations, before calling each to a meeting to attempt to resolve the matter.
Reedy added: ‘We simply don't have time for matters such as these which are not only damaging for the image of the sport and the sports followers but for the athletes’.
