Majola not delaying disciplinary proceedings
Gerald Majola objected to the appointment of John Myburgh as part of his disciplinary hearing.
JOHANNESBURG - Suspended Cricket South Africa (CSA) CEO Gerald Majola said on Tuesday he was not trying to delay disciplinary proceedings against him.
Majola was suspended in March following recommendations of the Nicholson Inquiry which investigated suspicions around bonuses paid for the 2009 DLF Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament.
Advocate John Myburgh was appointed as an independent chairperson of the disciplinary hearing, but Majola's objection against this was dismissed.
Majola's lawyer Pumezo David said his client stood by the objection.
"We stand by that objection. They have taken a position on that particular view and we don't necessarily agree with it."
Former judge, Chris Nicholson, was appointed to chair the inquiry following uproar around bonuses paid to executives for the tournament.
Nicholson handed his report to Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula in March.
Shoddy corporate governance at the CSA was exposed during the public inquiry, and a tearful Majola also attempted to explain why he avoided declaring bonuses he had received.
