According to Media 24 reports, the South African Football Association (Safa) has revealed that it never took the decision to donate 10 million US Dollars to the Diaspora Legacy Programme.
When the Fifa corruption scandal make international headlines a few months ago, a letter emerged written by the then Safa President Molefi Oliphant in 2008, to Fifa Sercretary-General Jerome Valcke.
The content of the letter allegedly confirms a request of 10 million US Dollars originally destined for the hosting of the 2010 World Cup, to be channelled instead to the Diaspora Legacy Programme, a development programme in the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf).
