The absence of young blood in the highly contested leadership race at the South African Football Association (SAFA) has been met with disappointment.
The parliamentary chair for Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities Nonhlanhla Ncube-Ndaba says they had hoped that a young person would be among those contending for the position of presidency later this month. She has called on the youth to become part of SAFA including its national executive committee. This as soccer is considered South Africa’s most popular sport.
Ncube-Ndaba says the youth need to attach a meaningful revolutionary value to Youth Day, which was marked Thursday and draw new vision and new strength from it.
