Cricket SA president ousted

JOHANNESBURG – Cricket South Africa President Mtutuzeli Nyoka was ousted by the federation’s members in a vote of no-confidence Saturday morning, the organisation said on its website. “With immediate effect, the position of Dr M. Nyoka as president of Cricket South Africa is terminated,” the federation said.
Nyoka, who did not attend the meeting, was voted out by an “overwhelming majority” of Cricket South Africa’s 11 affiliate presidents. Nyoka had locked horns with the federation’s chief executive, Gerald Majola, over more than one million rand (138,000 dollars, 102,000 euros) in bonus money paid out when South Africa hosted the Indian Premier League in 2009.
The federation’s board cleared Majola in November of financial impropriety, accepting a review committee’s finding that he had not deliberately failed to disclose bonus payments to federation staff. Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula had last month stepped in to urge Majola and Nyoka not to let their dispute disrupt the Proteas’ preparations for the cricket World Cup.
