CSA dismisses former acting CEO Kugandrie Govender

News

The new board has advertised the CEOs position, with applications due to close on July 31

Cricket South Africa’s former acting CEO Kugandrie Govender has been dismissed with immediate effect, bringing an end to the disciplinary matters that have stretched back to December 2019. Govender was suspended in December 2020, four months after former CEO Thabang Moroe was fired over allegations of misconduct.

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.
