Safa appalled by old flag


SAFA has since brought the matter to the attention of South Africa’s High Commission in Ghana and the Local Organising Committee of Ghana 2008.

SAFA CEO Raymond Hack says the poster is in bad taste and deflects attention from what has been a fantastic display of football in the 26th Edition of Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana; he says it’s unfortunate that such pictures emerge on the eve of a much anticipated semi final matches.

“It is extremely disconcerting and is in fact disrespectful and appauling to the Association and the Country as a whole the display of the old Apartheid Era South African Flag linked to Football and the Tournament; we have been in contact with all relevant stakeholders and they undertook to investigate the matter,” commented Hack.
