CRICKET SOUTH AFRICA (CSA) has today received the judgment handed down in the Johannesburg Labour Court regarding the application lodged by its former CEO, Mr. Gerald Majola.
Mr Majola had unsuccessfully sought an order for declaratory relief against, inter-alia, the decision of the Honourable Minister of Sport and Recreation, Mr Fikile Mbalula, to appoint the Nicholson Committee of Enquiry. Mr Majola had also sought to set aside the CSA disciplinary proceedings which flowed from the recommendations of the Nicholson enquiry.
“CSA is pleased that this matter is over and that we can now focus on the future,” commented CSA President Chris Nenzani.
“With a new Board and Haroon Lorgat in place as our new chief executive, we are sensing renewed enthusiasm across the country. I am confident that we are now well on our way to restoring confidence in cricket’s administration.”
The judgment was delivered with costs being awarded against the Applicant (Mr Majola), save for the cost of postponing the initial hearing, which is to be carried by the Minister who requested the postponement.
