Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Thursday announced that its board of directors terminated the employment of its chief executive Thabang Moroe.
This termination of employment is with immediate effect.
This follows the resignation of its former acting chief executive officer Jacques Faul and president Chris Nenzani, who both resigned last week.
CSA said in a statement:
“Cricket South Africa’s decision was based on expert external legal opinion supported by the findings emanating from an independent forensic investigation. The independent forensic investigation revealed that Mr Thabang Moroe had committed acts of serious misconduct which warranted the sanction of dismissal.
“Mr Thabang Moroe was offered sufficient opportunity to provide representations to the independent forensic auditors and to the Board regarding the allegations of misconduct, which opportunity he failed and/or refused to utilise.
“Ms Kugandrie Govender will continue in the acting chief executive officer role until such time as Cricket South Africa recruits a chief executive officer.”
