Nyoka is a snake, says Cricket SA’s Majola

2011-12-12 07:36

Embattled Cricket SA (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 says (in isiZulu) and only he will know why he said all those things.”

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

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 reinstated 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.

Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula announced a commission of inquiry into the matter in October.
