Heads could roll at CSA
Johannesburg - Sports minister Fikile Mbalula will appoint a committee to look into a KPMG audit's findings against Cricket SA.
The members of the committee would be announced next week, Mbalula told the media in Rosebank on Sunday.
He said a retired judge will head the committee to help bring the issues raised in the audit to a close.
Whatever the judge recommended would be implemented "even if heads have to roll," said Mbalula.
The KPMG audit recommended that CSA's remuneration and travel allowance policy be reviewed.
It found an apparent non-disclosure of bonus payments to CSA employees, contrary to Companies Act requirements, and suggested that CSA seek the legal advice of senior counsel.
CSA president Mtutuzeli Nyoka was axed at a special meeting on Saturday.
Nyoka had been at loggerheads with the CSA for two years, after making repeated calls for an independent inquiry into CSA finances and bonuses paid to staff including CSA chief executive Gerald Majola.
The board dismissed Nyoka in February, but he fought his removal in the High Court in Johannesburg and was reinstated two months later. CSA then agreed to the audit.
Majola was found to have "made an error of judgement" in failing to clear bonus payments with CSA's remuneration committee. No action was taken against him.
While Nyoka continued to argue for sterner measures to be taken, the board backed Majola.
CSA's board announced last month that it intended ousting Nyoka for bringing the organisation into disrepute by disregarding the majority decisions of the board and damaging its reputation.
Nyoka was not at Saturday's meeting because of ill health.
CSA vice president AK Khan was appointed as acting president until CSA's next annual general meeting in August 2012.
