The CSA interim board spelt out the alleged misconduct charges Govender faces.

“The charges against Ms Govender relate to‚ inter alia‚ (i) the role she played in the revocation of media accreditation of certain journalists in December 2019;

“(ii)various breaches of the provisions of the Companies Act as a prescribed officer of CSA; and;

“(iii) the role which she played in the dismissal of Mr Clive Eksteen‚ which CSA has now acknowledged (in terms of a settlement agreement with Mr Eksteen) was an unfair dismissal‚” the CSA interim board said in a statement.

The statement went on to confirm that CSA chief financial officer Pholetsi Moseki has been appointed as acting CEO for a month.

The disciplinary hearing against Govender will commence on January 28, 2021.

FIRST WOMAN TO LEAD CSA

The CSA interim board added that the alleged acts of misconduct against Govender were committed during her time as chief commercial officer and also as acting CEO.

Govender became the first woman to lead CSA after she was appointed in an acting capacity in August following the resignation of Jacques Faul.

The CSA interim board said the decision was part of its execution after its investigation emanating from the Fundudzi forensic report into allegations of poor corporate governance and maladministration within the CSA organisation.
