  1. On 23 March 2012 Mr Rian du Plessis, the CEO of Phumelela and whilst a member of the NHA national Board stated in writing to the NHA, “ [Phumelela] hereby formally submit to you that the NHA only has jurisdiction over its members and does not have jurisdiction over Phumelela………”

    Why have an investigation by the NHA when according to Phumelela no sanction can be imposed against it for anything. Do not be surprised if this investigation by the MHA falls flat or the racing public receives a short paragraph saying not much more than the facts already set out by Phumelela.

    Time and time again the NHA has been asked by members to change its rules to hold the operators accountable for any wrongful conduct. Has it happened? NO. We know why.

  2. Phumelela can employ as many incompetents as it sees fit and impose them on the racing public with impunity. Another bitter fruit of corporatisation.
