New DG welcomed
South Africa’s Olympic governing body SASCOC on Wednesday welcomed the appointment of Mr Mokoditloa Eliakim Moemi as Director-General of Sport and Recreation South Africa (SRSA).
Mr Moemi replaces acting DG, Ms Sumayya Khan, who filled the post after the death of former DG Mr Vernie Pietersen.
Ms Khan reverts to her post as Chief Operating Officer.
SASCOC President Gideon Sam said: “We strive for a close working relationship with the SRSA and I am sure the new DG will further strengthen this relationship. It is vital South African sport shares a common goal and I am sure Mr Moemi has great visions for our sport.
“I also want to thank Ms Khan for her contribution. She did a fantastic job in continuing the late Vernie Pietersen’s good work.”
