Johannesburg – Cricket South Africa (CSA) president Chris Nenzani has resigned with immediate effect.
Nenzani, who has been the head honcho of the organisation since February 2013, stepped down on Friday when he submitted his letter of resignation.
His resignation, less than a month before he was due to step down as the organisation’s president at next month’s annual general meeting, draws the curtain on an extra year in the presidency that has seen CSA implode spectacularly on and off the field.
This comes 24 hours after CSA dismissed chief operations officer Naasei Appiah with immediate effect for “transgressions of a serious matter”.
Appiah has been suspended since October last year and his legal representative Thapelo Kharametsane laughed off the dismissal.
Nenzani’s two terms of three years each expired in 2019, but was asked to serve an extra year as president, something that he said he regretted at a parliamentary sports portfolio committee meeting in June.
In the extra year that he has served, CSA has been engulfed in scandals that have tarnished the image of the organisation.
