CAPE TOWN- South Africa Football Association (SAFA) presidential nominee Ace Ncobo revealed that he received death threats for challenging incumbent Danny Jordaan.
Addressing the media at the FNB stadium on Tuesday before the SAFA elections on Saturday, Ncobo did not hold back, he said,
“Recently I had to go and open a case because I have been receiving death threats from unknown people,” Ncobo was quoted as saying by the TimesLIVE website.
“I have been consistent in saying that as long as you are still calling me‚ it means you are not ready to kill me.
“Even if you succeed in doing so‚ I will be the happiest corpse in the mortuary because I would have stood for what is right.
“For the past nine months‚ I have been receiving e-mails‚ messages‚ calls from ordinary football loving people crying out for leadership.
“Danny Jordaan must move‚ he has done his part and he must go home.”
Ncobo a former PSL referee and general manager only received a single vote against Jordaan 52, he raised suspicions of this, he said he received more votes than SAFA would disclose.
He added according to iOL website, “First of all, the statues say the number of nominations should not be disclosed,”
“I therefore cannot say that and then reveal how many I got, but I will confirm that I signed several nomination forms, not just one.”
