Cricket South Africa has declared the arrangement of Clive Eksteen, its former head of sales and host relationships, after finding him guilty of”transgressions of a significant nature”. Eksteen was suspended in October this past year, together with interim director of cricket Corrie van Zyl and COO Naasei Appiah and faced charges of dereliction of responsibility concerning outstanding industrial rights penalties for players throughout the inaugural version of this Mzansi Super League (MSL).
Van Zyl has been cleared and has since returned to work in CSA, under new manager of cricket Graeme Smith while the two Eksteen and Appiah were found guilty of wrongdoing and appealed the results of these cases. Eksteen’s is now concluded, however, Appiah’s allure persists.
That means CSA nevertheless has two ongoing cases from the seven it gathered in 2019. Appiah and suspended CEO Thabang Moroe, that tried to come back to work this week, are equally open minded while Eksteen, monetary director Ziyanda Nkuta, procurement director Lundi Maja, and administrator Dalene Nolan, have been dismissed.
Moroe’s case has become the most high-profile together with all the South African Cricketers’ Association (SACA) asserting CSA’s plank is intentionally delaying the issue and lack the will to proceed on it. CSA has denied that, citing its pristine forensic audit because the reason Moroe’s continuing proceedings haven’t improved. Moroe faces, among other charges, allegations of credit card abuse. There’s not any sign as to why Appiah’s case remains open.
This is the second case where Eksteen was suspended from CSA, after formerly becoming entangled in an incident of reputational harm. He had been included at the Sonny Bill Williams mask saga throughout Australia’s tour to South Africa and suspended at March but returned to work in May of this year. Eksteen’s function at CSA was especially essential in keeping corporate connections, something that the organisation is distressed to reconstruct in the face of a fiscal crisis.
In the end of April, CSA missing a significant sponsor in Standard Bank, whom they’ve to substitute while its big backer, fiscal services firm Momentum, had previously indicated they would not examine their connection with CSA when the present president, Chris Nenzani, stays in his function. Nenzani has served two terms as CSA’s president, the next of which has been extended by a year, but he’s set to resign in September. The two SACA and several patrons put the blame for its administrative upheaval that the organisation has faced lately at Nenzani along with the board door.
