CAPE TOWN Cheap Rangers T-Shirts , June 1 (Xinhua) -- The opposition Democratic Alliance (DA) on Monday pressed the South Africans Football Association (SAFA) for clarity on on alleged corruption surrounding the 2010 World Cup.

This came after President of SAFA Danny Jordaan confirmed on Sunday that an amount of 10 million U.S. dollars was indeed paid to the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF), but claimed that this money was to support their football development fund and was not a bribe.

"The revelations of alleged corruption do not discount South Africa's achievement of hosting a very successful World Cup (in 2010). However South Africans deserve to know if money changed hands improperly in our name," said Solomon Malatsi, DA Shadow Minister of Sport and Recreation.

He said the DA will be asking a series of Parliamentary questions to get clarity on the issue.

South Africans want to know why the 10 million dollars was paid to the CONCACAF in 2008 by the Local Organising Committee (LOC) and which South African representative authorised the payment from FIFA to CONCACAF on behalf of South Africa, Malatsi said.

Other questions include:

Why was this money allocated to CONCACAF out of all the world football confederations, including the Confederation of African Football?

"We will also be submitting questions to get clarity on which members of the LOC made trips to Paris in 2004. This could establish the identity of the 'high-ranking South African bid committee official' who handed over a briefcase full of cash to a family member of Jack Warner, at a Paris hotel as a bribe to secure his vote for South Africa to host the World Cup in 2010," Malatsi said.

The 2010 World Cup is, and will remain, one of South Africa's shining achievements but it is vitally important to interrogate if corruption was involved in this event, he said.

South Africa's Sports and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula last week dismissed allegations that the government paid bribes to host of the Soccer World Cup 2010.

South Africa has been sucked in the FIFA scandal which led to the arrest of seven people in Switzerland last Wednesday.

It had been alleged that South Africa paid 10 million dollars in kickbacks for hosting the event.

Mbalula said his department is yet to receive a copy of the allegations from the United States and promised to do everything in its powers to unearth any shenanigans.

"South Africa's Department of Sports and Recreation hereby indicates that all funding by government was transferred via the National Treasury to the national Department of Sports and Recreation and that no such amount was paid by the department Sport and Recreation and the government of SA to any individual," he said.
So you've decided to take your first backcountry wilderness backpacking trip? You do realize this trip is away from civilization and not a simple two-day jaunt to the Holiday Inn. So you want to pack items which you feel are necessities along with some items which probably better fit into the comfort category. And you also realize you are going to have to carry these items on your back up and down the hills and mountains of the wilderness trails. So what do you bring along for the trip? What is really necessary and what is for comfort, and how much of both can you take?

Backpacking boils down to a balancing act of how much weight are you willing to carry to how much comfort do you want? Remember every extra ounce carried on your back is one extra heavy ounce at the end of the day. So the less weight you carry the easier the task. How much obviously is dependent on how long you plan on being out, how far you intend ongoing and how much weight your physical limitations can handle. There is plenty of lightweight gear in the market place today to help shed some ounces if you can afford this option. But you don't have to be a "lightweight gear" freak to keep your pack weight down. I started backpacking in the mid 1970's (pre-lightweight gear days) and managed my pack weight quite well.

Keep the "lightweight gear" philosophy in mind as you decide what you must have on your trip and avoid taking "everything but the kitchen sink". As you become more experienced you will soon discover that some of the items you deemed necessary today will not even be considered in the future. For a 2-3 day trip a 60-65 liter pack will probably suffice. Longer trips may require the larger 70 liter packs and up. For a rule of thumb keep your packed weight (weight of items plus pack) to 30-40 lbs. for a 2-3 day trip. And weigh everything
you are planning to carry prior to the trip to get your pack weight within this allowable weight. Too much weight makes a person more vulnerable to falls, back, leg, knee and foot problems.

Develop your personal backpacking checklist and use it to double-check yourself before every adventure, no matter how experienced you consider yourself an expert. Ten miles from the trail head is not a good time to find out you forgot fuel for your cook stove!
