Parliament, South Africa: The Portfolio Committee on Sports, Arts and Culture has expressed concerns over leadership instability at South African Sport Confederation Olympic Committee (SASCOC).

The Chairperson of the committee, Beauty Dlulane, said the leadership tussles needed leaders to reflect even during this time of enhanced lobbying.

The important question sport administrators ought to ask is what kind of SASCOC they want to lead. At the centre of the organisation, Dlulane said, should be the interest of the athlete, and not what seems to be happening – me-at-all-cost approach.

The committee expects to receive a detailed briefing from the ministry of Sports, Arts and Culture once the lockdown regulations had been lifted.

SASCOC is expected to elect new leadership that will take South Africa to the Olympics in Japan this year.
