Minister will release Sascoc inquiry report next month

“It is not part of what I can reflect on at the moment‚ but we will release the report when we have seen their responses. We are targeting to release the report in the next two or three weeks.”

The report was leaked to SABC Sport last month who said that the document delivered a scathing assessment of both Sascoc president Gideon Sam and former chief executive Tubby Reddy.

These were for irregularities and financial mismanagement that took place at a sports body that has been riddled with scandals for years.

According to the SABC‚ the inquiry that was chaired by retired Judge Ralph Zulman also put sharp focus on former chief financial officer Vinesh Maharaj‚ who is said to have acted inappropriately in awarding some of the contracts.

The SABC further revealed that the final report has recommended that in future the position of Sascoc chief executive must be filled by persons who are independent and not affiliated to any sport or recreation body.

Xasa could not be drawn to comment on the contents of the leaked report and asked South Africans to be patient until she makes it public next month.
