Nyoka’s demise a fait accompli

2011-10-14 14:30

A special general meeting of Cricket SA’s (CSA) board of directors is expected to vote its president Mtutuzeli Nyoka out of office in Johannesburg tomorrow.

Nyoka is accused of disregarding majority decisions of the CSA’s board and damaging its reputation. Only one of the 11 provincial administrative bodies has publicly stated it will not vote in favour of the motion to get rid of the CSA president.

The Northerns Cricket executive board said it was against the proposal, while six other provincial unions stated they were in favour of ousting Nyoka.

Nyoka, who has been at loggerheads with the board since 2009, faces his second sacking this year, after the board attempted to dismiss him, in a similar fashion, in February.

He fought his removal from office in the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg and was reinstated two months later. At the heart of the matter is the lack of action taken against CSA’s chief executive Gerald Majola.

According to a report compiled from the findings of a KPMG audit, Majola may have breached the Companies’ Act when he failed to declare bonuses which he and several other members of staff received after hosting the 2009 Indian Premier League and ICC Champions’ Trophy tournaments.

While Majola was given a slap on the wrist for not following CSA’s remuneration policy, Nyoka continued to argue for sterner action to be taken against him.

The board, however, has continued to back Majola. As a result, the CSA members’ forum unanimously proposed a second motion last month to dismiss Nyoka at the special general meeting, and this time they are unlikely to fail.
