Faul resigns as CSA chief

2012-07-05 20:46

Johannesburg - Jacques Faul has tendered his resignation as acting CEO of Cricket SA (CSA), four months after replacing embattled chief Gerald Majola.

CSA spokesperson Altaaf Kazi said the cricket body had not yet accepted his resignation letter.

"The board has asked him to reconsider and that is what he is doing right now," Kazi said on Thursday night.

"At this moment Jacques Faul is still the acting CEO of CSA."

The SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), which reportedly had a copy of the resignation letter, said on its website that Faul believed certain board members had lost faith in his judgement.

According to the SABC, Faul believed this could lead to "further conflict" as he would not agree with the board in future.

Faul took over the job on an interim basis in March after Majola was suspended following a ministerial inquiry into bonuses paid to CSA staff.

      Ja, his running... I think there is a lot of hidden agendas from the old regime which he is trying to sort out but the others doesn't like it...

    My sense is that Jaques Faul is a man of integrity on a good wicket, but faced with 'googlies' that some 'deep' in the 'out' field would like to be kept 'under covers'. Faul is currently 'not out'. My hope is that the 3rd umpire will persuade him to stay 'in' and knock the 'googlies' for a six - right out of the field, in fact! Then CSA corruption will be 'over'. And out!

      Sometimes even good people gets tired of the continious struggling against the odds. Where there are easy money there will always be more "googlies" than straight deliveries.

    BUT WHY???...when others resign its corruption and now the acting CEO. If not, then CSA needs a strong minded person to be CEO. If this guy wants to jump if things are not going his way then he is the wong person for the plc for a pnss willy as head of CSA

    Probably a simple explanation! Majola's buddies gunning for him. Being undermined evey now and then?

    Maybe this is a tactical move. If the ask him to reconsider he can attach ‘conditions’ for him to stay and these could be that CSA get rid of all Gerald’s old corrupt buddies.
