CSA 'holds moral highground'

2012-07-14 12:01

Johannesburg - An advisory award for Cricket SA (CSA) indicated that the disciplinary hearing against suspended chief executive Gerald Majola would likely go in its favour, it was reported on Saturday.

The Saturday Star reported that Advocate Johann Myburgh SC, chairman of the disciplinary hearing, provided the award, which implied that he would likely rule against Majola if the case continued.

Mojola, however, wants the process to continue.

CSA acting president Willie Basson told the newspaper that the body now "hold[s] the moral highground."

CSA acting chief executive Jacques Faul stressed Myburgh's findings were not binding.

"The advisory award only gives an indication, and it gives both parties an opportunity to decide whether to withdraw or to go ahead with the full hearing," he said.

"Majola could have resigned, but he has chosen to go ahead and continue with the legal process."

Faul said on Friday he had the backing of the CSA board after he rescinded his resignation.

He initially tendered his resignation last week, citing differences in opinion regarding the roles and responsibilities of the board.

Faul took office after Majola was suspended in March for failing to declare R4.7m in bonuses, which were paid to CSA staff without clearance from the board or the remuneration committee.

    How the hell is it that this ignorant fool just does not understand and wont give up and go fall on his sword somewhere nice and public. Is he that thick skinned or just plain stupid? That he does not realise the cookie has crumbled eventually after all the time he was raping cricket for whatever benefits he could derive for himself. Let's get this over and done with as well and we can move on and try to rebuild after all the harm he has left behind.

    Gerald, can you please just quietly piss-off now. You are not WANTED anymore and your 'services' are not needed. You've already seen to your own golden hand-shake so don't expect any more free handouts. The cricketing fraternity is way past being gatvol with you. Every time that you attempt to defend yourself, you either pass the buck or blatantly lie. You will forever be remembered as the midget who stole money and lied to try and cover it up.

    What does this stupid Majola think is going to happen? That a decision will go in his favour or is he hoping that he will be able to use the race card like all bloody thieving ANC members and get away with it by prolonging the inevitable result.
