Swimming South Africa may be about to lose its SASCOC membership

On reviewing Swimming  South Africa's Constitution dated 12 April 2015, it is clear  that  there are a number of omissions and irregularities that put such constitution at odds with not only SASCOC's Constitution, but the South  African Constitution as well.

No South African organisation may allow its constitution to conflict with the Constitution of South Africa as the Constitution of South Africa is the supreme law of the country of South Africa. It provides the legal foundation for the existence of the republic, sets out the rights and duties of its citizens, and defines the structure of the government.

One can only wonder what FINA and the IOC think about it.

Generally in the world of sport, a national federation has to get approval from the international body before such changes may be  implemented.

Has FINA then also lost the plot?

At one stage Swimming South africa had, without doubt, the best constitution out of  all  the sporting bodies, but  it  seems as though the officials and  administrators of Swimming South Africa would rather run the risk of having their  membership of  SASCOC terminated than maintain good governance.
