JOHANNESBURG – The Committee of Inquiry into Sascoc (South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee) governance allegations is set to commence on Wednesday at the Ellis Park Auditorium, starting at 10am.

It is likely that it will be the last of the public hearings.

To date, the Zulman Inquiry has facilitated over 25 witness submissions with six more to appear before the committee.

Among some of its responsibilities, the Zulman Committee of Inquiry will continue to lead evidence utilising the Committee members’ experience in the field of constitutional matters, labour law, governance and administration. 

The committee members will continue to probe all relevant parties, make findings and report the final outcome to the Minister of Sport and further grant her recommendations in relation to all allegations levelled against Sascoc and its officials.

On Wednesday, the Committee of Inquiry will listen to at least six witnesses coming from various sports bodies. They include Gideon Sam (Sascoc president), Aleck Skosana (President of Athletics SA), Lian Evans (Sascoc SS Griffin Report), Sanele Mthiyane (Basketball South Africa), and Dennis Mumble (South African Football Association CEO).

The committee will continue to be led by a retired judge Ralph Zulman, and will be supported by Dr Ali Bacher and Labour Law expert Shamima Gaibie.
