Danny Jordaan must resign from SAFA - EFF

Fighters say football association's President needs to be above politics

The EFF calls for the immediate resignation of Danny Jordaan from SAFA

18 May 2015

The Economic Freedom Fighters calls for the immediate resignation of Danny Jordaan as the President of the South African Football Association (SAFA) following his acceptance of the position of Executive Mayor of the Nelson Mandela Municipality on behalf of the kleptocratic ANC. Jordaan must resign from the association since he has chosen active politics and life as an ANC politician.

At the helm of SAFA must be a person that all the supporters of Bafana Bafana, Banyana Banyana, and the rest of national soccer teams can associate with regardless of which political parties they belong to. Jordaan must also resign to ensure that he does not render a body, that should be neutral and rally everyone regardless of their political affiliation, partisan.

It is obvious that Mr Jordaan has elected to be the Messiah of the kleptocratic and collapsing ANC in Nelson Mandela Bay and he must therefore do the honourable thing and vacate SAFA with immediate effect.
