SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux deems R37m civil claim laid against him ” strange.”

News24 reported that the institutions’ spokesperson Martin Viljoen confirmed with them that this was owing to administrative reasons and time constraints, by agreement between the parties.

The university is said to be claiming damages from Roux, He has ever since questioned these claims on grounds that the Univerisity is unable to produce the laws, statutes, regulations, policies, and principles that applied during his employment and that it is “strange” that he’s facing claims of breach of employment contract.

News 24 also included in its report that, an audit from KPMG, “attached to a notice by the university lodged at the high court in October 2017, Roux “misrepresented the university’s funds (including by, without evidence of authorisation, reallocating reserves of the university for expenditure); entered into unauthorised agreements on behalf of the university; did not act in the best interests of the university; and potentially benefitted personally from university funds.”

In March De Beer was served with a notice to appear in the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crimes Court later that month to face multiple fraud charges as well as a charge of money laundering, News 24 reported.

WOMEN’S varsity basket ball to debut this year

Published

on

Basket ball, a sport not that familiar on South African grounds to make it’s debut this year. This time around it’ll be women holding it down on varsity courts.

Wits Women’s captain Danja Lunnemann sees the potential of varsity basket to grow and develop basket ball in South Africa as well as women’s basketball within the country.

“Varsity Basketball is such a great platform for women to showoff their talent in never-ending fight to have women up there too at the same time. I’m just glad the women’s Varsity Basketball league had to wait only one year after the first ever men’s competition. We’re so excited to show off our talent and play the sport we love”, Lunnemann said.

Lunnemann said further said that, “Varsity ball is important because it adds extra growth to the development of basketball in South Africa generally. Varsity Basketball will show South Africa that there’s more talent out there. This is a great stepping stone to grow basketball in South Africa.”

Broadening the sports horizon is very important and to see how inclusive sports has become over the years, women are now given a platform to represent women in sports within South Africa.
