Former South African cricket supremo Ali Bacher has been labelled a 'liar' by CSA CEO Gerald Majola for denying receiving a five million rands bonus after the country's hosting of the 2003 World Cup.
Bacher had denied the allegation made by Majola at the inquiry into the financial affairs of CSA instituted by Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula.
"Bacher is lying," Majola said after Bacher said in a radio interview that he had received five million rands (R5 crore) as a supplement to his pension fund. "Bacher projects himself as a Samaritan, but he is everything except that," Majola said.
"He has also arranged that all his medical costs be paid by CSA until the day he breathes his last," he added.
In reaction, Bacher told the weekly Majola's 'liar' allegation was "disappointing".
"I have nothing to hide and also do not want to become engaged in mud-slinging," Bacher said.
