Leonard Chuene (Gallo)
Cape Town - Suspended Athletics South Africa president Leonard Chuene has been banned for seven years from all sport by the South African Sport Confederation and Olympic Committee.
This comes after Chuene, his deputy Kakata Maponyane and board member Simon Dlamini failed to beat Thursday’s deadline to appeal against a guilty verdict after the South African Sport Confederation and Olympic Committee found them guilty this week of poor corporate governance, misappropriation of funds and tax evasion.
Maponyane was given a 5-year ban and Dlamini got a 3-year ban.
The defiant trio did not appeal because they say they don’t recognise the disciplinary hearing instituted by the macro body.
