Faul resigned due to certain board members having little faith in his judgements
Cricket South Africa (CSA) acting CEO Jacques Faul has announced his resignation, four months after he took over from Gerald Majola, who is currently being investigated for irregularities during his tenure.
Faul, took over from Majola on an interim basis in March, after Majola was accused of paying bonuses to CSA staff.
CSA spokesperson Altaaf Kazi stated that the cricket board has not yet accepted Faul’s resignation letter.
“The board has asked him to reconsider and that is what he is doing right now. At this moment Jacques Faul is still the acting CEO of CSA,” Kazi said.
The South Africa Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), who claim to have gained a copy of Faul’s resignation letter, reported that he decided to step down since he believed that certain board members had little faith in his judgements.
The SABC also noted that Faul resigned since he was worried about “further conflict” in the future, and decided that enough was enough.
