The new board has advertised the CEOs position, with applications due to close on July 31
Specifically, Govender was under scrutiny for the role she played in revoking the accreditation of journalists in December 2019, for breaches of the Companies’ Act, and her part in the dismissal of the former head of sales and sponsorships Clive Eksteen, whose sacking was ruled unfair. She was found guilty after a lengthy process which has lasted more than seven months.
“The Chairperson of the Disciplinary Tribunal, Advocate Terry Motau SC, imposed a sanction of immediate dismissal, having regard inter alia to the seriousness of Ms Govender’s misconduct, the breach of trust and including the fact that a continued working relationship between Ms Govender and CSA would no longer be possible,” a CSA statement read.
Since Govender’s suspension, CSA has also parted ways with former chief operating officer Naasei Appiah and former finance manager Ziyanda Nkuta after previously ending their relationship with Moroe and Eksteen. Govender’s immediate predecessor, Jacques Faul, resigned from the acting CEO role to return to his post as CEO of the Titans franchise. She was succeeded by Pholetsi Moseki, who remains CSA’s acting CEO to date.
