Mind Sports South Africa’s membership to the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) is currently under review, pending a hearing.

Lazygamer quoted the Sascoc office in a report on Wednesday (3 July 2014) as saying that the MSSA’s affiliation with the committee had been terminated.

According to the MSSA general secretary Colin Webster, however, the MSSA has not received any official correspondence from Sascoc informing it that its membership has been revoked.

“It’s not true,” Webster told MyGaming. “According to the articles of association, the only way our membership can be terminated is at a council meeting.”

However, Sascoc CEO Tubby Reddy did confirm to MyGaming that the MSSA has been suspended from Sascoc, pending a hearing and one-on-one meeting with the group. Processes were currently underway, he said.

Webster said that the suspension is a “knee-jerk reaction” from Sascoc in response to a number of complaints laid by the MSSA against the committee.

Sascoc president Gideon Sam noted that the MSSA was asked to make an appearance before the Sascoc council to answer for undisclosed accusations made against Sascoc leadership.
