Judge Zak Yacoob hurls torrent of unwarranted abuse at journalist

Suspended Cricket South Africa (CSA) acting CEO Kugandrie Govender alleges she was verbally harassed by Justice Zak Yacoob, the embattled organisation’s interim board chairperson.

A disciplinary hearing against Govender is set for January 28 following her suspension last month on three counts of allegations of misconduct.

On Wednesday, Yacoob reacted angrily in a telephone discussion with TimesLIVE. He said: “You are a dishonest, irresponsible idiot. You are a rogue and dirty journalist. I prefer not to answer your questions and to air my views when the enquiry comes up [on January 28].”
