JOHANNESBURG- The DA is calling for an investigation into the South African Football Association (Safa) and for the suspension of the organisation's president, Danny Jordaan.

The party alleges that Jordaan has failed to deal with corruption in the association.

“What we are saying is that we want Danny to be investigated and he must know that there is no one who is above the law," said the DA's Tsepo Mhlongo.

"The constitution of Safa is clear that there must be an internal investigation.”

The DA is also demanding an investigation into the Safa election which cost nearly R6-million. 

It also wants a probe into the removal of Rea Ledwaba as Safa vice-president.

Safa denies the allegations.
