Cricket South Africa (CSA) is a skande.
It’s like watching a low-budget daytime soap opera.
They just can’t seem to get their act together.
After all the shenanigans of disgraced former CEO Thabang Moroe and his suspended successor Kugandrie Govender and the rest of the problems since the 2019 World Cup, you would think that they’d keep their heads down and stay out of trouble. Nie CSA nie.
This week chairman of the interim board Zak Yacoob was removed from office after his onbeskofte exchange with a journalist.
With Govender’s hearing coming up, former Constitutional Court judge Yacoob was implicated by her, claiming that he had offered R5 000 to get a lawyer after she was given a vote of no confidence.
Asked by the journo about the claims, Yacoob exploded and the story was made public over the weekend.
While he apologised for his response, Sports Minister Nathi Mthethwa had no choice but to remove him.
Just how sad is that? From a man who served the highest court in the land.
So where to now for the rabble running CSA?
The leash seems to be getting shorter with Mthethwa increasing government involvement, who will have to explain his actions to the International Cricket Council before suspension of the Proteas from global action happens.
This is, of course, the worst case scenario. But with CSA sinking lower every day, like mud sliding down a wall, you can only expect the worst from these clueless muppets.
