SASCOC Deregisters Karate South Africa Membership
- Updated: August 13, 2015
The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) has with immediate effect deregistered Karate South Africa’s (KSA) membership with SASCOC in terms of a Board resolution.
SASCOC has at all times endeavoured as a macro sports body, to support the National Federations. However, it is apparent and evident that the leadership of KSA has continued to mislead SASCOC by agreeing to implement certain joint decisions and thereafter failing to implement same and in fact reneging on such decisions.
This unfortunate decision we have reached, due to the inability of Karate South Africa to adhere to and implement the undermentioned decisions:
- The unconditional reinstatement of KSA officials who are suspended from KSA and who the KSA leadership refuse to reinstate even after the Public Prosecutor refused to prosecute these individuals.
- The merged inclusion of full Contact Karate as agreed after a meeting between the two parties (KSA and KSA Full Contact) and SASCOC.
As a result of the above, SASCOC will now engage with the Honourable Minister of Sport and Recreation South Africa, Fikile Mbalula, in terms of the Sport and Recreation Act, in order to ensure that all athletes affiliated to the federation are not prejudiced and are able to develop their potential and a structure is put in place to facilitate same.
