CSA inquiry findings to be announced

The findings of an inquiry into Cricket South Africa (CSA) are expected to be announced by Judge Christopher Nicholson in Pretoria on Friday.

Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula appointed the inquiry in November to look into CSA’s failure to implement certain recommendations made by auditing firm KPMG after it found irregularities in the organisation’s finances.

The 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 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 members, as well as the public over three months.

Mbalula’s office received the report on Thursday to discuss how the findings would be addressed with CSA and the process of making the report public. — Sapa
