CSA's Gerald Majola spits venom at 'snake' Nyoka

Embattled Cricket South Africa (CSA) CEO Gerald Majola has publicly criticised former CSA President Mtutuzeli Nyoka, according to a report on Sport24.

Majola said Nyoka “has targeted me for years now. When he was still president of the Gauteng Cricket Board, he called me a buffoon and said I was against transformation.”

“He is a snake like his surname [in Zulu] says and only he will know why he said all those things”.

Sport24 was quoting from an interview with Majola published in Rapport newspaper on Sunday.

Majola admitted to a committee of inquiry into CSA’s finances last week that he failed to disclose receiving a R1.8-million bonus from the Indian Premier League after South Africa hosted the competition in 2009.

Nyoka was dismissed as CSA president in October following a vote of no confidence by the CSA board.

This was the second time he had been dismissed after an initial attempt in February.

Nyoka was re-instated after the South Gauteng High Court ruled he had not been given adequate notice of the February meeting. He had reportedly preferred an external inquiry into the bonus non-disclosure, but Majola and the CSA board decided on an internal inquiry.
