The interim board of Cricket South Africa has suspended company secretary Welsh Gwaza for various counts of misconduct cited in the Fundudzi report.
The organisation released a statement late on Tuesday evening, announcing clean-up steps against some of those parties implicated in the report released at the end of last week.
Gwaza was issued a notice of disciplinary hearing for ‘various allegations of misconduct against him’ with his hearing set to take place on 14 December.
The board also sent notice of breach to HR company People Link (Pty) Ltd, which was used as an outsourced service by CSA in line with the appointment of Chantel Moon as the representative.
‘As has been revealed in the Fundudzi Report [released by the Interim Board on 25 November 2020], various material procedural irregularities took place when People Link was appointed by CSA’s erstwhile CEO, Mr Thabang Moroe. The Fundudzi Report has also revealed that Ms Moon lacks CSA’s minimum qualification requirements for the HR position. People Link has therefore been afforded 48 hours to remedy its breach by appointing a properly qualified representative, in accordance with the terms of CSA’s service agreement with People Link,’ read the statement.
CSA subsequently terminated the involvement of public relations independent contractor, PR Worx CC, with immediate effect.
