SA TIMES -Cricket SA claim that they placed no time period on the suspension of Thabang Moroe and that the CEO was well aware of this when he attempted to make a return to work.The Suspended Cricket South Africa (CSA) CEO Thabang Moroe has received full pay during his six months of suspension – a total income reportedly worth around R2 million.
Moroe was suspended by the organisation in December 2019 under a cloud of alleged misconduct, but the CSA board has failed to complete its investigation into the matter and there has been no disciplinary hearing as yet.
It has resulted in a complicated and confusing situation that saw Moroe arrive for work at the CSA offices in Johannesburg on Thursday.
CSA subsequently released a statement confirming that Moroe will, in fact, remain suspended while the organisation further committed to completing its investigation as a matter of urgency.
The longer CSA takes, though, the more it will cost them.
According to SA TIMES, Moroe has been earning a full salary of around $20 000 (R341 000) for the last six months.
That equates to a total income of around R2 million over the past six months.
In Moroe’s absence, Jacques Faul has been operating as CSA’s acting CEO.
CSA is hopeful it will be in a position to provide more clarity on the matter by the end of June.
