After maintaining the Fundudzi Report private, Cricket South Africa (CSA) finally decided to release the summary in the interest of cricket and to improve relations.
On Monday, corruption allegations were revealed against Thabang Moroe, former CEO. Moroe was fired last month, following an eight-month-long fully paid suspension.
The full record was made accessible to the Cricket South Africa (CSA) Members Council for examination.
Moroe allegedly failed to follow procurement processes and could not act in CSA’s best interest to ensure CSA does not suffer potential losses.
The report also probed into the company credit card usage. It held the former CEO responsible for failing to maintain a shorter leash on its expenditure with excessive alcohol purchases and overstepping boundaries in affiliates’ involvement.
Moroe was also believed responsible for withholding knowledge before exercising step-in rights at Western Providence Cricket Association (WPCA) and North West Cricket (NWC). CSA was accountable for the R565 000 legal costs after WPCA had won its arbitration case for being wrongfully put under management.
The Fundudzi Report alleged that the Western Providence Cricket Association (WPCA) case could have been avoided with due care, skill, and diligence as expected from a director.
Thabang Moroe was also held responsible for his association with revoking five journalists accreditation and the failure to pay the South Africa Cricketers Association on point.
Fundudzi has recommended that in the future, CSA should take into consideration to provide guidelines relating the use of credit cards for traveling in terms of the approved Credit Card Policy, procedures relating to expenditure on alcohol, limiting the allocation of credit cards of the CEO, and CFO among others things.
