Lie detector for Ncobo

Lie detector for Ncobo

Posted: 18 November 2009 Time: 8:53 pm

PSL General Manager: Football Ace Ncobo will undergo a public polygraph test to clear his name after allegations of misuse of his powers.

This follows a report in The Star earlier this month that Ncobo had instructed referees to garner damaging evidence against Orlando Pirates which could get the club in trouble.

A statement read: “The League has appointed a task team comprising Zola Majavu and Michael Murphy (both lawyers) to establish the facts pertaining to this matter.

“Ncobo has also been informed of this and he has indicated his preparedness to assist as required and also stated that he has no objection to the members of the task team.

“The League has been informed that a public polygraph test is to be conducted at the Johannesburg offices of Independent Newspapers at 13h00 on Thursday. It is important for the League to record that such a test is not a part of the investigation which the League has initiated.”

Lie detector....is not 100% accurate....so even if he fails the test u cannot punish because of that device. You cannot not only rely on this machine, come up with something else, other mechanism to get to the bottom of this issue. Pls no Nigerian commens pleaseeeeeeeeee. This is domestic affairs

The question is why appoint people from inside PSL? Michael Murphy and Zola Majavu are very much unlikely to take any decision against Pirates..Majavu job will be compromised forever..why didnt they appoint independent investigators..?

Whose idea was this for a lie detector test? Will the referee (who has failed a test before) also be taking it this time? Why is PSL making this announcement about this test if its not their business..? To put pressure on Ncobo?

I like the message on the 'We Back Ace' page on facebook that said that he is the Jacob Zuma of soccer. Let them humiliate and persecute him...nothing can beat the truth..

Why PSL always have problems when Black General Managers are incharge. If not all previous Black GM in PSL left under the cloud. This need to be investigated on its own as I am suspecting that some people enjoy having White Bosses to run our game. I am not being racist but its what I have observed and what has happened in the past.

Evidence from that device is not admissible in any disciplinary hearing, so this exercise is a pure musterbation***

I dont understand this PSL led by Chairman Khoza.They got the information from suspended refree Nhlapo who failed the lie Detector test which accuse of General manager Ace Ngcobo in instructing refrees to get criminitating evidence against Pierats,I think that is crazy.How do you take a testimony of somebody who lied and use it to charge a General Manager.This Khoza is running the PSL like a Spaza shop and the other members of the board are just puppets since khoza give them a share of the bonusses from sponsorship.Now Khoza is after Ace since Ace was in the camp of Jordan

Mnc Ngcobo hates Pirates big time.Not i can see why all the game he handled against Pirates they did'nt won it.instead a draw was the best result 4Pirates.
Ngcobo must be fired also.beeing suspended is not good enough we don't need such people in our community.

My point is that how do u beginning to take evedence from Nhlapo as credible and use it against charging a General Manager whilst the same Nhlapo failed a lie detector.That shows that anything that Nhlapo has provided as evedence is likely to be lies. Khoza is just using every power he has to destabilise the whole footbal fraternity after loosing to Neamatandani

you people seem to forget that under Khoza's chairmanshp, the PSL has generated more money in sponsorship than previouse years? Supersport, Absa, MTN, Telkom, Nedbank..team grants increased from R150K to R500K! and who the hell is Ace Ngcobo! you'll only understand the magnitude of Irvin Khoza's contribution to Sa Soccer when he's gone! people in this forum are ignorant! without Khoza, PSL wouldn't be where is it today! Next year we're hosting the world cup because of who?The Iron Duke! & don't Danny this, Danny that! coz we all know holds the purse strings at the LOC! so give respect where is due and take what ever ill feelings you have a gainst the man & put them aside!

Guys, let me educate you. no one fail or pass a Polygraphy test. there is a set of exact questions asked relating to the subject in question.

Regarding Ace's issue here, he's being accused of secrectly ganging against Pirates. he has to undergo the test and whatever he would say, the machine will detect if he was telling the truth or being deceptive. the machine works on voluntary and involuntary muscle like your blood pressure, heart beat and your ammount of sweat from your finger tips. example: if Ace didn't commit any crime, when asked, he wont panic and his heart beat won't accelerate, however, if he know he did that, hy sal kak, the machine will show deceptiveness and that's how you "FAIL" the test.

Ncobo's face tells me he is habitual liar. He must fired. period. Ncobo is a moron who was gave an impression that he could referee like Colina, the Italian.
