Cape Town – Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) former acting chief financial officer (CFO), Ziyanda Nkuta, has been suspended.
Sport24 can confirm that Nkuta, who had served as acting as CFO since October 2017 and had served as the organisation’s financial manager since mid-2015, was given news of her suspension on Thursday.
She had, however, previously stepped down from her post as acting CFO in June this year, CSA says, and was serving in another capacity at the time of hearing of her suspension in her final month’s notice period.
Nkuta last spoke publicly in April on CSA’s projected four-year R654 million loss, insisting that the organisation was not in a financial crisis.
Details surrounding her suspension are yet to be confirmed, but at least two other employees were suspended on Thursday.
They are procurement manager Lundi Maja and administrator Dalene Nolan.
Two independent board directors – Iqbal Khan and Shirley Zinn – also resigned from their posts this week.
This comes at a time where CSA CEO Thabang Moroe and his leadership have came in for heavy criticism following what has been a disastrous few days for the organisation.
Also on Thursday, the Central Gauteng Lions Cricket Board called for the resignation of Moroe and the entire CSA board.
An ongoing legal battle with the South African Cricketers Association (SACA), the suspension of senior officials Clive Eksteen, Corrie van Zyl and Naasei Appiah without any detailed explanation, losing an arbitration hearing against the Western Province Cricket Association after having placed the union under administration and the absence of any permanent staff in charge of the national Proteas just three weeks out from the start of a home Test series against England have all contributed towards a national outcry against the current administration from the cricket fraternity.
Things reached boiling point over the weekend when Moroe and CSA revoked the accreditation of five local cricket journalists because of how they were covering ongoing events at the organisation.
That decision was then overturned 24 hours later, but it fuelled criticism from all corners with major sponsors Standard Bank expressing their “grave concern” at CSA’s administration.
Since then, former CSA (previously UCB) bosses Norman Arendse, Ali Bacher and Haroon Lorgat have all publicly criticised the current regime.
CSA confirmed the suspensions to Sport24 on Friday morning.
A special CSA board meeting has been called for Saturday, where Moroe’s future is believed to be hanging in the balance.
Details on the suspensions, CSA added, would emerge after that meeting.
** Sport24 had previously reported incorrectly that Nkuta was suspended while acting CFO. That is not the case as she had stepped down from that post at the time of her suspension. Sport24 apologises for the error …
The Hawks arrested 10 Limpopo testing station officials on Thursday for allegedly selling drivers’ licences.
According to the unit, the 10 people, who include a senior licensing officer, three examiners, two clerks, a cashier, an instructor, a general worker and a middleman were arrested at the Malamulele and Mutale testing stations.
“The Hawks’ serious corruption investigation team, in collaboration with Road Traffic Management Corporation centre, embarked on a project-driven investigation aimed at addressing allegations of corrupt activities at the testing stations in the province,” Hawks spokesperson Captain Matimba Maluleke said.
“The Hawks’ investigation revealed that the driving licences were sold at a minimum of R8 600 per applicant.”
The 10 people are expected to appear in the Malamulele and Mutale magistrates’ courts on Friday.
A video circulating on social media shows a woman allegedly being manhandled by a number of Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) officers at a petrol station in Lyttleton, Pretoria, late on Tuesday night.
According to civil society activist Yusuf Abramjee, the woman was alone and didn’t want to pull over in the dark fearing fake cops. She drove to a nearby petrol station where the officers proceeded to manhandle her.
In the video, the woman exits her white VW Polo at around 23:25 as the metro officers approach her vehicle. She is then pulled toward a TMPD kombi by three male and one female officers. The seemingly distressed woman resists and appears to be calling for help.
A man wearing a yellow T-shirt and baseball cap attempts to intervene but is kept at a distance by one of the officers.
The woman is then thrown to the ground by one of the officers, handcuffed and loaded into the police vehicle.
TMPD spokesperson Senior Superintendent Isaac Mahamba confirmed the incident to News24 on Friday.
“We as the department are aware of the video and the incident that took place on the mentioned date and times and we can confirm that those members seen in the video are TMPD members,” Mahamba said.
“At this stage, [an] internal investigation is continuing and we have since obtained statements from the affected members. We can also state that the case is at an advance stage and we will be able to comment further after the chief of police has studied the docket opened and pronounced on the next step afterward.”
The Cape Town spore trap is running again. Fungal spores increased in response to some overnight rain. Ascospores increased and a small spike was seen for Rust spores. Grasses were low, trees were similarly low (eucalyptus, cypress and white stinkwood) and a few weed pollen grains were detected. These were: English Plantain and Euphorbia.
Count: 5 (low) [Last week: 16 (moderate)]
Fungal spores were low but spikes were seen for Cladosporium indicating an increase in humidity. Trees levels were low and included: birch, bush willow, ash, mulberry, eucalyptus, pine, yellowwood and plane. Grasses were very low. Weed levels were low and included: English Plantain, daisy, Apiaceae (shrubs of the carrot and celery family), Parietaria and the indigenous shrub Stoebe.
Count: 6 (moderate) [Last week: 6 (moderate)]
Fungal spore loads were low but are increasing, especially Cladosporium levels. Pollen levels were low. Grass levels were low. Weeds were low and included, daisy, English Plantain, Prunus and ferns. Tree pollen was also low and included: birch, bush willow, jacaranda, oak, cypress, ash, mulberry, eucalyptus, yellowwood and Rhus/Searsia.
Count: 5 (low) [Last week: 26 (high)]
Bloemfontein (Orange Free State)
The fungal spore levels were very low. Pollen levels were similarly low and included low levels of grasses and trees including: olive, eucalyptus, white stinkwood, buddleja and oak. Weed pollen included goosefoot.
Count: 12 (moderate) [Last week: 9 (moderate)]
Kimberly (Northern Cape)
All pollen and fungal spore levels were low, yet there is clearly more moisture in the atmosphere as Cladosporium is beginning to appear in clumps. Pollen levels were low, with a constant low presence of grasses. Acacia pollen was detected in the category of trees; and Euphorbia pollen appeared regularly for the category: weeds and shrubs, along with English Plantain.
Count: 2 very low [Last week: 2 (very low)]
Part of the strip was lost during this sampling week so the counts have been extrapolated from previous weeks and this week’s weather parameters. Fungal spore levels are lower than previous weeks but are still at moderate levels. Pollen levels are low and include low grass counts, birch and mulberry tree and the weed pollen: Daisy and English Plantain.
Count: 2 (very low) [Last week: 3 (very low)]
Port Elizabeth (Eastern Cape)
The fungal spore levels were low. Pollen levels were also low, but new species were identified. In the category: Trees, only olive pollen was detected. In the weed/shrub category, Iridaceae, rarely seen at other sites was detected and Hermannia, a fynbos shrub that has not previously been identified from other sites was seen.
