Textile union demands answers from Safa

The Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers Union (SACTWU) kickstarts a series of protests against the South African Football Association (SAFA) on Friday.


The COSATU-affiliated union demands Safa tells them why Bafana Bafana kit was not manufactured by local designers.


The union's Provincial Secretary, Themba Ncgobo, says they have written a letter to Safa president Danny Jordaan.

'We learnt during the Afcon (Africa Cup of Nation) campaign that Safa were using the clothing that was not locally procured which is something as Sactwu we are advocating that almost all our sporting codes must use goods that are made locally.


"In the absence of Safa not adhering to that, we have taken a decision to voice our anger in the manner in which they are conducting themselves," says Ncgobo.


The first protest takes place in Durban.
