Sangoma claims Safa owes him R90 000

A sangoma claims the South African Football Association (Safa) owes him R90 000 for providing the “magic” to win against France in the 2010 Fifa World Cup, the Daily Sun reported on Tuesday.

S’bonelo Madela said Bafana Bafana would not win any matches until he got his money, hinting he was responsible for the team’s failure to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations playoffs on Saturday.

“If the national soccer team wants to start winning, the South African Football Association bosses must settle their debt with me first,” Madela was quoted as saying.

Safa vice-president Mwelo Nonkonyane confirmed it had used Madela’s services, but said he had already been paid.

“We are going to open a criminal case against this guy,” Nonkonyane said in the report.

Neither Nonkonyane nor Safa spokespeople Morio Sanyane and Gary Mojela could be reached for comment. — Sapa
