Kass Naidoo: I did nothing wrong


When the scandal broke over the controversial bonuses received by the management of Cricket South Africa (CSA), Kass Naidoo’s name was mentioned repeatedly. And while charges of mismanagement and self-enrichment were raging she remained silent.

But now she’s broken her silence. Just a few days after quitting CSA on 17 March she’s composed and confident as she believes walking away was in her and South African cricket’s best interests.

Now Kass is unemployed. Despite media reports about bonuses for some CSA staff and the storm over them, she believes she deserves every cent of the R109 000 bonus she received.

“We worked as hard as we could and were rewarded for the work we did on the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament (in 2009). At no stage was there reason to suspect there was a problem. The bonuses went through the normal processes, including SARS,” she says.
