But can he do that?
Does any legislation currently enacted in South Africa give him such powers?
Is it that the Sports Minister, like the rest of the government, just doesn't give a damn about the Constitution?
One wonders how he can forbid these National federations from hosting events when the Minister has not yet issued Regulations for such in terms of section 14(jC) of the National Sport and Recreation Act?
The truth is that he can't 'ban' an event, he can just pull government support .
