Cricket South Africa suspends former acting CFO Ziyanda Nkuta from various committees

This follows the resignation of independent directors and the suspension of CEO Thabang Moroe.

In further news of the shake-up at Cricket South Africa (CSA), on Thursday 5 December, the organisation suspended its former acting CFO Ziyanda Nkuta

Nkuta stepped down from the acting CFO position in June 2019 and has been serving on the CSA’s finance and commercial committee and the audit and risk committee since then.

Nkuta joined the CSA in 2015 as its financial manager. She was promoted to acting CFO in October 2017. 

On Friday 6 December, CSA announced that it has also suspended its CEO Thabang Moroe with immediate effect on allegations of misconduct.

This follows the Central Gauteng Lions Cricket Board’s call for the resignation of Moroe and its entire board on Thursday after they revoked the accreditation of five local cricket journalists because of how they were covering ongoing events at the CSA. 

Standard Bank also said on Friday that it will not renew its agreement as the title sponsor of the SA men’s cricket team when it concludes on 30 April 2020. 

All of this comes a week after the resignation of Shirley Zinn and Iqbal Khan as independent directors of the board. 

CSA procurement manager Lundi Maja and administrator Dalene Nolan have also been suspended.
