    CSA member claims R600 000 Ajay Sooklal - Head of CSA Legal and Governance Committee (Gallo Images) google_protectAndRun("render_ads.js::google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); Johannesburg - A Cricket South Africa board member has shocked his colleagues by claiming R600 000 from the organisation for, among other things, text messages and parking costs. According to The New Age website, in an unexpected twist of events at Cricket South Africa (CSA), Ajay Sooklal has created a storm with his unprecedented claim, made in two separate invoices sent to CSA late last year. Sooklal claims over R200 000 in the first invoice for “miscellaneous disbursements including faxes, text messages, telephone calls, emails, parking and tollgate fees” - for trips to meet clients in Port Elizabeth and at CSA offices. In the second invoice, submitted in October, the legal and governance chairperson claims more than R400 000 for, among other services: “taking instructions, attending board meetings and press conferences”. However, the less than impressed CSA’s compliance secretariat manager, Pume Canca, responded by saying: “The board would like you to explain why you charged professional fees in respect of matters set in your invoices, when the work was supposed to be done in your capacity as a member of the board’s legal and governance committee.” Labour law specialist Sandile July left the door open for CSA and Sooklal to make successful arguments. “If the work was done outside CSA’s time then a board member can bill the association but not if it was during time set aside for board meetings. Even then it first has to be pre-approved by the board,” said July. Although Sooklal has also been asked to explain the critical submissions he made to the Judge Chris Nicholson inquiry, CSA spokesperson Michael Owen-Smith denied suggestions that Sooklal was being victimised.

    Exactly my point. We say stuff in afrikaans that we dnt want international people to understand. The pakistani captain was no doubt doing the same ie his teammates would understand no one else was intended to hear or understand. Unfortunately stupid enough near a mike someone did hear and ask for an interpretation. .my take ..our local brothers cry racism at every fart nowadays...

    We (saffers) do it freely in afrikaans when overseas Weda. Mostly to get rid of frustration. I am sure Vlag will concur 😉

    Ja Barnacle, I'm not going to belabour the discussion from my side, I am outgendered on the forum 😉 and unless I agree 100% with Christina very few here indeed if anyone will then agree with me 😉. I do know that you and I get along and that we would mostly sit comfortably around the same fire together for hours on end debating this issue in person, as I would with several others here. I don't agree with all her statements. Just as there are a few I do agree with. I am not a bra burning feminist who hates men, despite the fact that 3 adult men have fucked up my life before I was the age of 10 years old. Neither do I believe in the emasculation of men, since I would not want to have sex with a woman I would not want men to be like women LOL. There is a reason we are different. After 10000 years if not 100 000 years of ruling the roost I think men might themselves be more sensitive as to losing their "place in society" as opposed to this 'huge war against them'. This APA is in any case for men who go to visit psychologists etc, and a guideline as to how their problems might be better resolved. I don't doubt/deny feminist groups might push the agenda - as I said I am not in such groups but that does not mean there may be less validity to this discussion. As my last comment I put it out there - world wide there is a crisis in the rape, abuse and violent actions against women and children. Worldwide. This is not imagined shit. And then I say. There must be something wrong with a society that perpetrates that shit.

    Don't stare blind against the title. The article is a good read... Did you miss this ? "APA’s Guidelines for Psychological Practice With Girls and Women were issued in 2007 and, like the guidelines for men and boys, aim to help practitioners assist their patients despite social forces that can harm mental health" ??
