Sparks fly as dismissed Sascoc CEO Reddy makes his submission

JOHANNESBURG – Dismissed Sascoc CEO Tubby Reddy acted in a way that was “tantamount to fraud”, a member of the ministerial committee of inquiry into SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) governance matters said on Thursday.

Reddy along with his two fired colleagues, CFO Vinesh Maharaj and manager Jean Kelly, made their submissions on Thursday and while Reddy threw some bombs at president Gideon Sam, he came under fire himself.

Labour lawyer Shamima Gaibie was questioning Reddy on the so-called SS Griffin report that runs to about 300 pages. She put it to Reddy that only 12 pages had been authored by the company SS Griffin, which has searched the Sascoc offices and Reddy’s home for bugs, and the rest has been authored by himself and Kelly.

Reddy also levelled several accusations against Sam, saying the president orchestrated their dismissals, double-dipped by claiming from Sascoc and the Commonwealth Games Federation, of which he’s the vice president, and he acted dictatorially and corruptly.

Reddy later explained that after Sascoc had placed ASA under administration, the attorney had worked with the administrator, Zola Majavu, who took office at ASA on April 18, 2013, and Sascoc.

Reddy who is fighting his dismissal at the CCMA, said Sascoc had offered him a settlement of 12 months’ salary and dropping criminal charges against him.

“If they are so confident about the crimes that were committed, why are they so willing to drop charges,” he said.
