Majola set to face the music

Johannesburg - Two key figures in the Cricket South Africa (CSA) bonus saga will face a ministerial inquiry when the committee meets in Pretoria for the third and final week starting on Monday.

Former CSA audit committee chairman Colin Beggs will begin proceedings with his presentation on Monday morning, and CSA CEO Gerald Majola, the last person scheduled to face the committee, will appear on Wednesday.

Beggs, who first pointed out that CSA staff had been paid undeclared bonuses, had called for an external audit into CSA's finances, along with former remuneration committee (Remco) chairman Paul Harris and former finance committee chairman Hentie van Wyk.

The trio was voted off the board, and after former CSA president Mtutuzeli Nyoka also called for an external investigation, he was handed a vote of no confidence.

Nyoka won a court case and was reinstated in May, but was ousted again in October.

Harris and Nyoka were among those who faced the committee in the first week of the inquiry, along with another former CSA Remco chairman, Thandeka Mgoduso.

Last week CSA appeared twice before the committee, with members of the Khan commission, which had cleared Majola of any serious offence after an internal audit, standing up in support of the CSA chief executive.

Former CSA chief operations officer Don McIntosh and SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) CEO Tubby Reddy also appeared before the committee last week.

Majola has refrained from commenting on the bonus saga, but is expected to be grilled by the commission, chaired by Judge Chris Nicholson, which will report back to the sports ministry.
