  • SA Rugby has questionable governance standards

SA Rugby Chief Executive Jurie Roux’s six-year legal battle with Stellenbosch University has come to an end.

Roux lost an appeal against a 2020 arbitration ruling that ordered him to pay back R37 million to the university for misallocation of funds relating to his tenure in the finance department of the rugby club.

Roux must pay the university’s legal costs.

John Maytham interviewed News24 Editor Adriaan Basson (scroll up to listen).

I thought he had to go in 2014, when the KPMG report was leaked to me… it implicated him exactly in what he was now found to have done, but he didn’t! He also didn’t go… in December last year… So, I don’t know what type of corporate governance standards Saru applies, if any…

Adriaan Basson, Editor - News24

Roux has built himself a base of supporters in Saru’s top structures. He’s a very powerful guy there… He’s very much entrenched…

Adriaan Basson, Editor - News24

He is under investigation for fraud by the Hawks… Why would you conceal transactions?... He is in deep trouble. This is going the criminal way… I don’t know why they haven’t arrested Roux yet… They’re going to strip him naked…

Adriaan Basson, Editor - News24

I don’t think the governance structures at Saru are so good… Roux ingratiated himself very well with small unions… It’s untenable!
