Johannesburg - The sports ministry will release the findings of the inquiry into Cricket SA (CSA) on Friday.

Inquiry committee head retired judge Chris Nicholson would address the media with Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula in Pretoria, Mbalula's spokesperson Paena Galane said on Thursday.

"He [Nicholson] will give feedback on the process from the beginning to the recommendations."

Mbalula would brief the media again next week after he had completed his consultations with interested parties and the government.

The SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) and CSA had already received the recommendations, so the findings could be made public.

Mbalula appointed the inquiry in November 2011 to investigate CSA's failure to implement certain recommendations by auditing firm KPMG. A KPMG report found bonus payments of R4.5 million to CSA chief executive Gerald Majola, former CSA chief operating officer Don McIntosh, and other CSA employees, had been kept secret from the federation's remuneration committee. It was also found that Majola had breached the Companies Act at least four times.

The committee received written and oral submissions from current and former CSA staff, and the public over three months.

It adjourned at the end of January to compile its report.
