Surprise, Surprise: Chuene Gets To Keep His Job

No surprises here. Yet contrast this with the way Jake White was treated, after leading the Springboks to a world championship.

Chuene remained president of the federation following a meeting of the ASA council in Johannesburg on Thursday.

ASA will release a statement later in the day, he said.

The council met to discuss the controversy surrounding ASA's handling of the Semenya affair.

According to Sapa, much of the meeting had been expected to involve Chuene's admission that he had lied about gender tests conducted on world 800-metres champion Semenya in Pretoria last month.

Chuene also admitted last weekend that he had chosen to ignore advice from ASA team doctor Harold Adams to withdraw Semenya from the World Athletics Championships in Berlin based on the results of those tests.

Chuene had initially denied all knowledge of the tests before admitting on Saturday he had lied about the gender tests, saying he had done so to protect Semanya.

This guy represents the values of the majority in the RSA. Too stupid to lie,too stupid to perform
his job. Perfect non - performing boon with a huge victim/underdog chip on his shoulder.

@VI, I don't know why you are suprised that he is to keep his job. We all know by now that the anc does just as they please and don't really give a damn about what anybody else, or what the rest of the world thinks. Got to think of the brudders that were involved in the "straggel", that is always their first consideration.
