CSA sacks CEO Gerald Majola

2012-10-19 13:21

Johannesburg - Gerald Majola has been fired as CEO of Cricket South Africa (CSA) following an internal disciplinary hearing.

Gerald Majola's Disciplinary Hearing report

"The disciplinary chairperson issued his findings on sanction which CSA will implement with immediate effect," CSA said in a statement on Friday.

"The sanction handed down by Advocate Karel Tip SC was that Majola is dismissed from his service with CSA with immediate effect."

Nicholas Preston, CSA's lawyer, said on Thursday that Majola was found guilty on all charges, but primarily of the non-disclosure and receipt of bonuses from the 2009 Indian Premier League tournament and ICC Champions' league, and the misuse of his travel allowance.

He was invited to attend both the findings and the sanction, but chose not to do so.

Majola withdrew from the hearing last week, questioning the legitimacy of the process and arguing that the CSA board had already cleared him of any wrongdoing in respect of the charges levelled against him.

Majola's lawyer, Pumezo David, said he had set aside the disciplinary hearing and had formally opposed it through the Labour Court.

David confirmed that all the respondents in their Labour Court application, which included CSA and President Jacob Zuma, had been furnished with papers and had until October 29 to respond.

Preston said he could not comment on Majola's Labour Court application yet, but was certain CSA would oppose it.

    He'll still walk away with much more than he arrived with. Never any real justice.

      patrick.buckley.712 - 2012-10-19 13:51

      Now the court cases and time and money wasting will commence. He will not go to jail as he should. The cha cha of entitlement will continue to be danced, as the next thief arrives! A travesty of corruption and mismanagement.

      Hope he gets trialed publicly; like they did with Hansie.

      Well you've got to give Gerald Majola an "A+" for effort, for desperately trying not to get bumped off the gravy train.

    "Poor Zuma", again in the court. What does he have to do with this? Go away Majola.

      winifred.watson.9 - 2012-10-19 16:53

      This Majola is like a fly sticks to sh-t. He has no self respect, well paid and he still thinks he is entitled because he has been disadvantaged. Who in their right minds would want to work with this thief and whatsmore who is willing to trust him. Eish no conscience no self respect just an embarrassment to the Cricket Board and the players. Will somebody explain what the meaning of "YOU'RE FIRED" maybe he only understands voetsek

    Is it just me or is this little bit unfair. This is the first article I have ever read where there is a link to the conclusion of the hearing. Never have I seen this been done with any black or white even coloured "high-positioned" leader. Yes the guy was a prik which I accept, but its fair enough the media will be pulling the skin off his face, why allow the online readers and their friends and families that will read this link do it as well?? Just unfair!!! There's a loop whole in every system within South Africa... We just haven't uncovered it!!!

      om.nom.nom.01 - 2012-10-20 09:26

      It's just you dude. Why allow the online readers to read this link? Easy, coz it's public record for 1. And 2, he is a crook. And 3, it's in the public's interest. And 4, there is always Google (if News 24 did not supply the link). Think about this, while you are feeling sorry for him he is spending & enjoying his millions (that he paid to himself). If you want the public to stop "pulling the skin off his face" maybe you should write him a letter asking to repay said millions? However, young as you are, I highly doubt you will waste your time doing that.

      dnelson23 - 2012-10-20 12:25

      Thanks for clearing that om.nom.nom.01. However, i must say I dont feel sorry for him, he has been found guilty for what he has done. I was just commenting on basis of media pieces released of these high level crooks. However, thankk again for clearing that up for me.

      om.nom.nom.01 - 2012-10-20 13:15

      My pleasure, Sonny. Anytime. P.S. Read the first sentence of your comment again.
