Cricket South Africa (CSA) suffered another meaty blow as the acting Chief Executive Officer Jacques Faul also stepped down from his position. This comes after almost 24 hours organization’s president Chris Nenzani also quit. Jaques Faul decided to resign with immediate effect on Monday from the spot despite one more month to go in his role.
Jacques Faul refused to underline the reasons for his resignation; however, it seems as if he felt frustrated the way organization has functioned. Faul’s stepping down as reported by IOL.co. za leaves the CSA without a leader and deepens a crisis as it already struggles with a financial meltdown and debates around transformation.
Jacques was thrust into the role last December after Thabang More faced a suspension, on full pay, pending the outcome of a forensic audit. A report on More has been submitted to the Board of Directors, who met him last week; however, no final decision was made.
Jacques Faul appointed as the acting CEO for the second time:
It was also for the second time that Faul served as CSA’s acting CEO. The first time was in 2012 when Gerald Majola faced a sacking following the bonus scandal. Faul will have a brief break before returning to serve as CEO of the Titans’ franchise belonging to the Mzansi Super League.
Meanwhile, Chris Neznani wrote to the CSA last Friday about vacating his spot, a decision that got executed the following day. CSA’s statement on Monday morning read that “Mr. Nenzani has led Cricket South Africa with dedication and astutely since 2013,” the statement mentioned.
