Cricket South Africa president ousted

12:05 pm on 13 February 2011

The president of South Africa Cricket Mtutuzeli Nyoka was ousted yesterday following a public feud with the organisation's chief executive Gerald Majola.

A meeting of CSA members' forum, comprising provincial presidents, passed a vote of no confidence in Nyoka at a special meeting in Johannesburg.

A CSA statement says a majority of the forum proposed a motion of no confidence and that Dr Nyoka's position would be terminated immediately.

A dispute between Nyoka and Majola has been simmering since Nyoka challenged the payment of a 300,000 (NZ dollar) thousand bonus to Majola following the staging of the Indian Premier League in South Africa in 2009.
