Judge Nicholson releases findings



Judge Christopher Nicholson released on Friday the findings of the inquiry into Cricket South Africa.

SAPA reports as follows:

Cricket SA chief executive officer Gerald Majola was the dominant force in the allocation of bonuses, retired judge Christopher Nicholson said on Friday.

There was "overwhelming evidence" that it was Majola and not former CSA chief operating officer Don McIntosh, Nicholson told reporters in Pretoria.

This was the opinion of the inquiry committee.

There was also a prima facie case that Majola had contravened the Companies Act, he said.

Nicholson was releasing the findings of the inquiry into CSA.

Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula appointed the inquiry in November 2011 to investigate CSA's failure to implement certain recommendations by auditing firm KPMG.

A KPMG report found bonus payments of R4.5 million to Majola, McIntosh, and other CSA employees had been kept secret from the federation's remuneration committee.

It also found that Majola had breached the Companies Act at least four times.

The inquiry committee received written and oral submissions from current and former CSA staff, and the public over three months.

It adjourned at the end of January to compile its report.

CSA response:

In its response, CSA acknowledged receipt of the report and said it would be circulated to all members of its Board of Directors.

Board members will also be given an opinion of their rights and powers by CSA’s senior counsel.

Once this procedure is in place a meeting of the CSA Board of Directors will be convened to consider the recommendations of the Nicholson Committee.

The Board will report back to the Minister by April 9.
