Majola to appeal his axing

2012-10-20 08:55

Cape Town - Axed Cricket SA (CSA) CEO Gerald Majola will appeal findings of a disciplinary hearing against him and will fight his case in the Labour Court, according to a report on the EWN website.

Majola was on Friday fired as CEO of CSA following an internal disciplinary hearing. The sanction was handed down by Advocate Karel Tip SC and Majola was dismissed with immediate effect.

Majola was found guilty on several charges, but primarily of the non-disclosure and receipt of bonuses from the 2009 Indian Premier League tournament and the ICC Champions League, and the misuse of his travel allowance. Earlier this week he also withdrew from the disciplinary process and chose to go to the Labour Court instead.

CSA lawyer Nicholas Preston says it's interesting that Majola now wants to appeal.

“He initially had the opportunity to appeal and clear his name, but chose to withdraw from the proceedings. The fact that he is now appealing is surprising."

      I suppose if I was earning salary of R150K per month for having a cushy job I would also drag this thing out to the bitter end!! I doubt Majola is going to find that again in a hurry!

    Seriously Majola? it is not that they speculated over the bonuses you took for yourself without permission. At least man up and apologize! then beg for your job back, it is a privilege to have that job, not YOUR right!

    WTF is wrong with this crook. Is he afraid of having to pay back all the money he took illegally. They should make him pay back every cent he paid himself plus the "perks"of flying his family around.

    A totally unrepentant, conscienceless thief and fraudster. Just the kind of person who seems to be in many high positions today as a result of EE.

    He'd have come out of this in better had he just apologised and walked away from a losing battle instead of being humiliated be being dragged out of the arena.\r\n\r\nWhat has our leadership come to? Political appointments who were rightfully kicked out of power (many lucky to escape further justice) bent on going back into positions where they are clearly not wanted.\r\n\r\nDoes this man really expect to succeed should this appeal somehow stick?

    Clinging to hs place, trying to get the last bit of gravy out of his post. Disgusting. Thank you, Gerald Maclown, thank you for tarnishing our name SO badly that the world no1 Test side has a goddamned cooking oil company for a sponsor, because so reputable company wants to be linked with us!

      keba.mothoagae - 2012-10-20 10:37

      The oil company sponsorship is the ultimate insult, honestly. And the c*cksucker wants his job back after this? Who the f*ck raised him and what principles were instilled in him?

      Indeed! His parents probably never gave a rat's behind what he did...

    If this guy had any self respect, he would just dissappear into thin air. All this appealing whilst he is aware of what he has done is not helping his image for the future. He is a liar and a thief. He has and never had the least bit of interest in the game of cricket, he was only there for the money.d It is disgusting that he earned a very good salary plus it came with perks, that he still had to indulge himself because he believed he needed to be rewarded. Come on, who rewards himself with other people's money, only a thief. He seems of the opinion what he did is not a crime. When you get devious with somebody's money, that makes you a thief and now what does he not understand about being fired. He can ask zuma now for a job, he has all the right creditial for the job. We dont want this thief anywhere near a cricket pitch. From initially being disadvantaged he is now has an advantage, so take it and move on Majola. Go and try your thieving tactics somewhere else, you good to go. Fired,,,voetsek what dont you understand.

      With his expertise in paying himself and his minions unearned bonuses, he will be able to get a management position with ESKOM. Lol

      And watch the lights go out.....

  • robin.stobbs.9 - 2012-10-20 10:55

    Why is it that crooks like this don't lie down and go quiet when caught with their pants down? No they have to tie up courts and lawyers for years, spending money that isn't theirs to spend fighting a losing battle and making a total ass of themselves.

  • davy.botha - 2012-10-20 11:26

    These guys have no scrupals, the audacity of fighting even though you are wrong. Majola just go away or do you want to fight for a golden handshake!

  • ndyeboreginaldmazawule - 2012-10-20 11:35

    Good luck with your appeal mr thief Majola

  • joe.smit.549 - 2012-10-20 11:52

    Plead insanity, and you'll probably get your job back. Mind you, you really are insane.......
