CSA Members’ Council promises to address ‘governance failings’ and act against wrongdoers

Suspended by the nation’s Olympic physique for “maladministration”, Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) Members’ Council has promised to address the “governance failings” and “act against” wrongdoers to reform the crisis-ridden organisation.

The Members’ Council of the CSA on Saturday studied a abstract of the Fundudzi Forensic Report, which was shaped after an unbiased investigation into the executive affairs of the CSA in 2016. The report’s findings led to the dismissal of former CSA CEO Thabang Moroe final month.

“The Members’ Council of CSA met on Saturday and were taken through the summary of the Fundudzi Forensic Report. A frank and robust exchange of views took place amongst the members on the findings and recommendations,” the CSA stated in a press release.

“Issues pertaining, amongst others, to governance failings, financial controls, use of step-in rights, media accreditation and transactions entered into by CSA were debated, and a plan was presented and adopted to take steps to implement the recommendations and to act against relevant parties.”However, the precise findings of the reviews had been but to be made public.

Earlier this month, South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) requested the CSA board to “step aside” because it investigated “many instances of maladministration and malpractice” within the organisation.

SASCOC’s motion, which implies that there isn’t a one to run each day affairs of CSA, was a setback to CSA which is in the midst of administrative chaos and dealing with allegations of corruption and racial discrimination.

CSA had objected to SASCOC’s determination to droop it, saying that it has not been given the chance to current its case.

The CSA can be contemplating authorized choices relating to the premise on which SASCOC intervened in its affairs.

On the opposite hand, 5 former staff of CSA, together with a former chief working officer, on Saturday accused the cricket board of being “unfair and unlawful” in a letter written to the SASCOC.
