Did the referee [Ndiaye Maguette] deliberately neglect to take a decision when he was required to in terms of the laws of the game, and did he ignore it with the intent to influence the outcome of a match [Ghana v South Africa]?
Ace Ncobo says, according to his independent investigation, 91% of the INCORRECT decisions (30 out of 33) by the referee [Ndiaye Maguette] in Sunday’s crunch FIFA World Cup qualifier went against Bafana Bafana.
If I know [for example] that in the tenth minute that the referee can give a penalty, then there will be a betting spike just before the penalty is given.
If that happens… you know. We don’t have the capacity to look at that so we have asked FIFA. They have a sports radar that reports patterns in sports betting, an agreement with interpol, they have huge capacity to investigate the matter.”
