    <span class="Apple-style-span">The trouble continues for Commonwealth Games Organising Committee (CGOC) Chairman Suresh Kalmadi as a shocking allegation by the South African High Commissioner on Sunday (September 26) that a snake was found in one of the player’s room in Commonwealth Games village. The statement was made by the South African High Commissioner to India Harris Mbulelo Majeke. </span>


  • "We can't go and stay till things are fixed up. We have very grave concerns. If snakes are found we can't ask our teams to stay there. Yesterday we found a snake but I don't know whether it was an Indian snake. But it was there in one of our rooms," Mejeke said before entering the village. "That was a threat to the lives of our athletes. Very disappointing. Basically, the basement was full of water and the staircase was also damp," he said. On being asked if he brought the matter to the notice of the organisers, he said, "We had someone with us. They have promised us, everything will be all right. I will go and check whether the promise has been kept," he said. However, the South African envoy said there team will not withdraw from the controversy-marred event. "The teams are coming and we are still part of the Commonwealth Games. When everything will be done we will call our teams," Mjeke said. The village has already been sharply criticised for the unhygienic conditions and now the sensational claim would bring more bad publicity to the event.
