Cricket South Africa have terminated the employment of chief executive officer Thabang Moroe with immediate effect.
Moroe was suspended in June 2020. Acting CEO Jacques Faul was then appointed, but left the post earlier this month.
‘Moroe committed acts of serious misconduct’
“Cricket South Africa announced on Thursday that its board of directors resolved to terminate the employment of Thabang Moroe as Cricket South Africa’s chief executive officer. This termination of employment is with immediate effect,” read a statement from CSA.
“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 Moroe had committed acts of serious misconduct which warranted the sanction of dismissal.
“Mr 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.”
In the absence of Faul, chief commercial officer Kugandrie Govender was appointed acting chief executive officer of CSA last week.
“Ms Govender will continue in the acting chief executive officer role until such time as Cricket South Africa recruits a chief executive officer,” added CSA.
