Want a Merc for R1-00 yes Only one Rand

There is a catch you need to be part of the gravy train that is still chugging around South African Government Departments and Associations

Former Athletics SA (ASA) boss Leonard Chuene bought a car, an E Class Mercedes-Benz, from the embattled organisation for just R1 in 2004, eNews reported.

The revelation was made to the broadcaster during an interview with ASA's administrator, Ray Mali.

Mali said he made the discovery while going through the minutes of previous ASA board meetings. He also discovered that three other cars were sold to ASA officials for R1 each.

ASA's previous board was removed from office for alleged financial mismanagement and their handling of athlete Caster Semenya's gender verification saga.

"It's just a transaction by the board. Some members of the board just stood up and proposed that the cars be sold to Leonard and other certain individuals," for One Rand Mali told eNews.
