Swimming SA (SSA) leaders were scolded by members of the parliamentary portfolio committee on sports, arts and culture on Tuesday after the sports federation failed to timeously submit a report about allegations of sexual abuse that have engulfed the organisation.

After a brief standoff on whether SSA should be allowed to present, and after the members unanimously agreed to send the swimming delegation back, the DA’s Joseph asked the committee to make an exception with SSA.Joseph said that “given that the matter is important and sensitive, I ask the committee that we must consider allowing Swimming SA to present to us”. He was defeated.

Even Joseph’s colleague in the DA Tsepo Mhlongo disagreed with him.“I don’t support my colleague because we will set a bad precedence if we allow SSA to present despite their late submission,” Mhlongo said.“We have agreed that if a report is late, and we have not had time to engage it as committee members before a presentation, it must not be discussed.”

The ANC’s Mthenjwa Zondi said: “We have a standing resolution chairperson that if an entity does not send us a report or presentation on time before the meeting we don’t entertain the presentation of such a report.”National Assembly: Briefing by SASCOC and Swimming South Africa on allegations of child sexual abuse; Briefing by SASCOC on the performance of Team South Africa in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics Games; Consideration and adoption of the Committee Budgetary Review and Recommendations Report (BRRR); Consideration and adoption of Committee Minutes, Virtual Meeting Platform, 30th November 2021, 09:00-13:00 headtopics.com
