“We have informed Athletics South Africa (ASA) in writing, and Matiya will not be allowed to compete in any official race either nationally or internationally,” CGA president James Moloi said on Tuesday.
Matiya was arrested in January after he was caught selling official numbers and T-shirts, which were found in his possession at the Johnson Crane Marathon in Benoni.
Other people were also believed to be involved in the long-running scam, including former Comrades Marathon gold medallist Elias Mabane, though possible ties to the two-time Johnson Crane winner remained unclear.
Moloi, the ASA road running chairman, said the CGA inquiry had run its course, but police were still investigating.
“If people from other regions are implicated by the police, their respective provinces will be informed of the matter,” Moloi said.
It was not revealed how Matiya and his alleged accomplices had acquired the stolen goods, but Moloi remained hopeful more light would be shed on details during the legal process.
“Maybe when this goes to court he will tell them who else was involved and how they did it.”
