South Africa is physically bankrupt and the country’s soccer association still carries the weight of bribery allegations since the 2010 World Cup series. However, they still think that they have a chance to host the Africa Soccer Cup tournament in 2019.
Cameroon, was denied the right to host the tournament due to delays in their preparation and fears about safety.
The president of SAFA, Danny Jordaan, is not elected on the world football association’s management for various reasons.
Three women filed alleged rapes against Jordan, including a former ANC, MP (African National Congress, Member of Parliament), Jennifer Ferguson.
Observers find it strange that Dennis Mumble, Acting Chief Executive Officer of SAFA, said three days ago that it would cost R140 million to host the series. He added that the government would have to help the funding because SAFA did not have the funds.
Does the tax payer donate the money because such a series is not a money maker.
The Department of Sport and Recreation has confirmed that the government will consider such an application.
