Saru pressed to take action against its CEO, Jurie Roux

CEO of South African Rugby Union (SARU) Jurie Roux is alleged to have made unauthorised payments which could total to 32 million rand, when he was Chairperson of the Maties Rugby Club.

The Presidents of South Africa’s major provincial rugby unions (KwaZulu-Natal Rugby and Western Province Rugby) are now calling for Saru to provide leadership in the matter involving Roux.

CapeTalk’s John Maytham spoke to Adriaan Basson, Editor-in-Chief at Netwerk24 about the situation at Saru.

Saru is split on the matter, it’s a complete battle at the top

Adriaan Basson, Editor-in-Chief at Netwerk24

In one corner you’ve got Oregan Hoskins, President of Saru, lagging behind in support in this specific matter …

Adriaan Basson, Editor-in-Chief at Netwerk24

And against him are other Saru Presidents, people like Mark Alexandra … who is opposing Hoskins for supporting Jurie Roux

Adriaan Basson, Editor-in-Chief at Netwerk24

And I think that’s why the presidents of the unions are now trying to take the power into their hands and saying ‘we need to sort this thing out.
