Danny Jordaan Retained SAFA Presidency After Being Re-elected for a Third Time

Battles for power is very much challenging as it requires a lot of hard work, and a lot of campaigning. It is now a case closed for Danny Jordaan who was battling Ria Ledwaba for the Presidency of SAFA, the elections faced so much criticism especially Jordaan who was running for a third term, though he won he is still going to have a rough ride as some public members and some legends are protesting. The elections kicked off at Sandton Conventional Centre Saturday morning with people outside protesting showing support to Ria Ledwaba, asked by the journalist what will happen should Ria loose, they promised they are going to intensify the protest.

According to a reporter on ENCA, Donny won by an overwhelming majority accumulating about 186 votes to secure his third term of office, while Ledwaba got 27 votes and eight votes for Mohlabeng. Jordaan who is now 70 years old will be in charge of SAFA for the third term, the position he has been holding since 2013.

However the outcomes of the elections are still to be confirmed by SAFA, I personally congratulate President Danny for being elected for a third term and we as citizens are expecting to see different changes and growth in South African football and i must say that is in the hands of the leadership elected today.
