CSA mum on bonus payments

2010-08-13 14:49

Johannesburg - Cricket South Africa (CSA) said on Friday they would not comment on bonuses paid to their employees until a review is completed by an independent audit committee.

"A review of the systems used to determine bonus payments, in respect of non-CSA activities, will get underway in September," CSA said in a statement.

"Until such time, CSA will not comment further, to ensure the process is upheld."

The remuneration committee of CSA called for a review after R4.7m in performances bonuses was paid to more than 40 employees for hosting the Indian Premier League and Champions Trophy competitions which were held in South Africa last year.

More than R3.1-million of that money was split between CSA chief executive Gerald Majola and former chief operating officer Don McIntosh.

Majola has already agreed to repay the bonus he received in full until the matter is resolved.

Former chief justice Pius Langa will chair the review committee.

    Here we go again. Now why are these gentlemen being paid millions for something they were not responsible. Who decide on this bonuses and why was that money not used to help with development? Take that money and plough it back into rural cricket where the game is dying a slow death! This just shows you that there are deep rooted problems in CSA about corruption. What else have they received and not reported? How many golden handshakes have there been. Why is Dr Nyoka not jumping up and down.......Was Majola not also part of an investigation about computers, players's salaries etc? Clean house I say!!!!!

    Corruption is rife in all bodies in SA which the taxpayer pays for. Why didnt Majola turn down the offer of a bonus. Now that there is an enquiry he wants to repay. too late, the horse has bolted. You accepted it & will be found just as guilty, but what will be done? an investigation with no results or consequences.

    What is it with these people. They think if they give the money back after being caught, then there is no crime. This is just like to MP's. If you get caught then give the money back, not crime. If not then keep it.

    So what is the prblem...execs get overrewarded all day long...hell most of the affluent community in SA, white or black, are overrewarded. Perhaps more execs should be prepared to repay bonuses....Transnet and Eskom included.....

    Well done Gerald, I hope that you can keep your bonus. You are a true ambassador of transparancy and democracy.

    Why does it not surprise me, greedy majola your true colours are showing, doing nothing for grass route cricket, after 17 years proteas sill without an indigos African. majola and mcIntosch should be ashamed. thought this sort of thing only happened in safa. execs get the big bonuses and the workers get screwed long live capitalism. 4.7 million can go along way in high performance development at grass routes.

    Did they deserve a bonus? What was the crirerea, to be an employee??

  • Fred - 2010-08-13 18:31

    What a bunch of money-grabbing bastards. The gravy train is continually gathering momentum. Shouldn't that money have rather been spent on grassroots development???? Instead it just gets gobbled up by these parasites. Most people won't even earn that much money in their entire working lives !!!!!

    The right decision would be to resign.
