Cricket SA fires CEO Thabang Moroe
Cricket South Africa (CSA) has decided to fire its former Chief Executive Officers, Thabang Moroe after forensic investigations revealed his act of serious misconduct.
Thabang Moroe had been suspended since December 6, last year following a lot of speculations and “ugly saga” surrounding his name.
The decision to fire him was agreed upon by the CSA’s Board of Directors yesterday afternoon, where Moroe’s termination was done with immediate effect.
“Cricket South Africa’s decision was based on expert external legal opinion supported by the findings emanating from an independent forensic investigation” the organisation said in a statement.
According to the statement released by CSA the independent forensic investigation revealed that the former CEO had committed acts of serious misconduct which warranted the sanction of dismissal.
The independent forensic auditors and the Board reportedly gave Moroe an opportunity to provide representations regarding the allegations of misconduct which he failed to utilise.
Kugandrie Govender will continue as the acting CEO until the CSA recruits a new one.
