Announcing this yesterday afternoon, the LOC's CEO, Danny Jordaan, said: “We have accepted Tumi's resignation. She has made a sterling contribution to the Organising Committee and we wish her well in her future endeavours.”
Makgabo has been a broadcaster for over a decade and was previously the host of CNN's Inside Africa programme.
“I have enjoyed working with the Organising Committee and believe the 2010 Fifa World Cup will be a resounding success. I am, however, looking forward to focusing on the other projects I have been involved in.”
