Shakes Mashaba’s CCMA hearing for unfair dismissal against the South African Football Association could take up to six weeks to complete, according to the former Bafana Bafana head coach’s lawyer, Claudio Bollo.

Mashaba is still awaiting a date for his hearing after mediation with Safa failed to produce a resolution at the start of this week.

Safa sacked Mashaba before Christmas for gross misconduct, gross insubordination and a violation of Safa policy.

He is seeking reinstatement as Bafana head coach or failing that, financial compensation.

“We have sent all the documents in to seek a date,” said Bollo on Thursday.

“We are waiting for them to allocate a date. It could take something like three weeks or could even be double that depending on commissioner availability and what witnesses the parties bring.”
