South Africa’s hosting of the 2010 soccer World Cup received a clean audit from Ernst & Young and there was never a suggestion of wrongdoing, a government minister said.
“There has never been any suggestion that anything untoward happened in South Africa,” Jeff Radebe, the minister in the presidency, told reporters in Cape Town. “The due process will take place.”
Members of South Africa’s bid committee for the 2010 tournament were implicated in an indictment by the US attorney general of paying bribes to secure FIFA votes.
