Cricket South Africa (CSA) has suspended its Chief Executive Gerald Majola even as its Brand and Corporate Relations Manager Kass Naidoo became the latest senior staff member to tender her resignation.

The CSA Board on Saturday decided to institute disciplinary proceedings against the embattled Majola, who continued to proclaim his innocence in the wake of a damning report by the Nicholson Inquiry instituted by Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula.

The disciplinary hearing will also address findings against Majola by the earlier independent inquiry by auditors KPMG. Both inquiries found Majola to be in breach of his fiduciary duties. The Nicholson Inquiry followed nearly two years of wrangling over huge IPL 2 bonuses, which Majola paid himself and other senior CSA staff without informing the board of CSA.— PTI
