Following recent media allegations regarding Netball South Africa’s (NSA) lack of good governance within the organisation, the National Federation’s executive led by President, Mimi Mthethwa-Zulu met with the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) leadership, Tubby Reddy at Olympic House on 20 June 2017 to map a way forward.
NSA requested this meeting to address and explain to the National Macro Sports body on the allegations labelled against them in media reports.
The NSA leadership responded to these allegations by clarifying and explaining that some of the questions posed by the media were personal. However, NSA responded to all relevant questions to SASCOC.
SASCOC CEO, Tubby Reddy commented, “As the macro sports body, we are satisfied with the explanations Netball South Africa has provided to us regarding the current state of affairs in the organisation.
“Most of the decisions implemented by the NSA Executive are issues and resolutions that were raised in their Council Meetings. To that effect, any decisions or resolutions taken at the highest decision-making body’s i.e. Council Meetings, are regarded as authentic and show that the organisation’s constituency practises and adheres to good governance.’
NSA president Mthethwa-Zulu commented: “We appreciate that SASCOC availed themselves to the Netball South Africa Executive led by myself as President, to state our case in relation to the recent media allegations.”
She went further to record her thanks and appreciation to SASCOC CEO, Tubby Reddy, and his team for their time and effort and for recognising the good work that NSA was doing in growing netball in South Africa.
