Nyoka to appear before CSA inquiry

Former Cricket South Africa (CSA) president Mtutuzeli Nyoka is to appear before the sports ministry’s committee of inquiry into the financial affairs of CSA in Pretoria on Friday.

Nyoka was dismissed as CSA president after a vote of no confidence by the CSA board on October 15.

It was the second time Nyoka had been dismissed, after a vote of no confidence in February. Nyoka took CSA to court and was reinstated by the South Gauteng High Court after it was found he was not given adequate notice of the February meeting.

Nyoka had expressed his desire for an external investigation into the allocations of bonuses. CSA opted for an internal investigation instead.

The committee, chaired by Judge Chris Nicholson, was announced by Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula on November 4 after a KPMG report recommended that CSA’s remuneration and travel allowance policy be reviewed — after it found a reported non-disclosure of bonus payments to CSA employees.

KMPG found the bonuses were kept secret from CSA’s remuneration committee, with CSA CEO Gerald Majola breaching the Companies Act on at least four occasions and paying himself R1.8-million from the R4.7-million in bonuses.

The committee includes two senior government officials from the national treasury — accountant general Freeman Nomvalo and chief director Zoliswa Zwakala. — Sapa
