Cricket South Africa has announced, that following a lengthy disciplinary process involving Ms Kugandrie Govender (the currently suspended chief commercial officer), her employment has been terminated.
This matter has now been concluded with the following outcomes and sanction:
- The chairperson of the disciplinary tribunal, Adv Terry Motau SC, imposed a sanction of immediate dismissal, having regard inter alia to the seriousness of Ms Govender’s misconduct, the breach of trust and including the fact that a continued working relationship between Ms Govender and CSA would no longer be possible.
Govender’s employment has been terminated with immediate effect.
The case against Govender was the last of the pending disciplinary matters that CSA had to conclude. CSA views the finalisation of this disciplinary matter as critical towards the stabilisation of the commercial business unit.
The fact that the matter has been concluded is also a necessary step towards ensuring that CSA enters a new trajectory of firmly focusing on serving the game of cricket and repositioning its relationship with its stakeholders and partners.
