Sports ministry receive CSA report

Sports ministry receive CSA report- 2 Mar 2012 00:00:00

The sports ministry has confirmed to media it has received a report on the inquiry into Cricket SA, bringing an end to the four-month process.

Paena Galane, sports minister Fikile Mbalula's spokesperson, said: ‘The sports minister has been briefed on the report. The meeting resolved to hold a media briefing in Cape Town on March 8, with the minister and judge Nicholson, to address the media on the findings.’

The inquiry was announced by Mbalula in November 2011 after auditing firm KPMG recommended that CSA's remuneration and travel allowance policy be reviewed.

A KPMG audit found that bonus payments had been kept secret from the federation's remuneration committee, and that CSA chief executive Gerald Majola had breached the Companies Act on at least four occasions.

The committee adjourned at the end of January to compile its report, having received written submissions from CSA staff, former staff, cricket stakeholders and the public.

The committee also heard a number of oral submissions over a three-month period.
