- Xolile Nkompela is the OR Tambo ANC regional chairman and SA Football Association (Safa) deputy president.
- He is now facing a charge of common assault
- He allegedly slapped the driver for blocking up a parking
In April 2018 SAFA President Danny Jordaan appointed Zolile Nkompela as the acting president of the association.
Now the African National Congress (ANC) heavyweight is in the news again, this time for not such a nice reason.
Nkompela has been accused of allegedly slapping a taxi driver.
Zubenathi Dazana, a 27-year-old taxi driver, has allegedly accused the SAFA acting President of slapping him twice last week Thursday.
According to reports, Nkompela accused the taxi driver of parking in a way that blocked a shop entrance.
A charge of common assault has been laid against Nkompela. However, he is denying the allegations stating they are nothing more than a smear campaign against him.
