Mumble's report claimed: “Safa is reversing all the democratic gains it has made over the past two decades”.
The meeting was held on Saturday and Jordann refused to recuse himself due to the nature of the reports which claimed that Jordaan had flouted the association's constitution when appointed staff and issues of governance according to City Press.
