CSA ponder way forward

Johannesburg - Cricket SA’s board of directors on Saturday were gathered in a meeting to discuss the way forward for the embattled organisation which has been plagued by a bonus scandal for over two years.

The meeting was being chaired by Gauteng Cricket’s president, Ray Mali, while the ex-officio members, including chief executive Gerald Majola, were biding their time outside.

It was expected that a newly appointed acting president would chair the meeting but the agenda was reversed and only the 11 affiliate presidents, known as the Members’ Forum, who hold the voting rights, were discussing the findings and recommendations of the Nicholson inquiry.

The ministerial inquiry, headed by retired judge Chris Nicholson, found the board had failed to take appropriate action against chief executive Gerald Majola for alleged financial misconduct.

Nicholson recommended that Majola be suspended for 180 days pending the conclusion of a disciplinary inquiry and that the board should be restructured and downsized to consist of a majority of independent, professionally skilled, non-executive directors.

Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula, who appointed the committee of inquiry, told reporters on Friday he expected CSA to follow Nicholson’s recommendations to the letter.

"If for whatever reason the board finds that they cannot implement a certain recommendation, I need to know why," Mbalula said.

"If the board of CSA has any moral compass, and understands its fiduciary duties, it must do the right thing.”
