Any payments was not bribes, he also said they have requested for information from the US authorities on any allegations pointed towards South Africa and they have not had anything thing from USA, with regards to the brief case stashed with $10 million cash.
…South Africa doesn’t want to be stuck between a war between USA and FIFA, the money was for the African continent, the world cup and the broader African diaspora and was used for that purpose…
