Minister Says 2010 World Cup received clean audit

No suggestion of ‘wrongdoing’.

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.

Mr. Radebe is missing the point totally. The bribery allegations are about the bidding for the World Cup, not the actual running of it

Events of that magnitude can never be clean… this is planet earth guys inhabited by people… remember people? power hungry, conflicted species in all of creation, controlled by greed and driven by baseless competition. Thats who we are. Homo Sapiens…. whoever made us, what was he/she thinking?

“There has never been any suggestion that anything untoward happened in South Africa…”
Not true. Though not related to this inquiry, there was the price-fixing deal between the major contractors that caught a few people’s attention, though clearly not Mr Radebe’s.
