Since December 2019, Enoch Nkwe has served the South African cricketing team in various roles, including one of a team director before the appointment of Graeme Smith. Nkwe, who was working with the national team as the assistant coach stepped down from his role on Tuesday, to focus on personal growth and professional development.
"The Board will be taking the necessary steps to investigate and address the issues raised by Enoch. We will not be commenting further on this until the process has been completed in October," the board said in a statement.
Ahead of the World T20 in October, the acting CEO Pholetsi Moseki would have to find a replacement for Nkwe, as South Africa target their first World T20 trophy win in the Middle East.
"It is deeply disappointing to lose someone of Enoch's calibre at this time, but we fully understand and respect his decision. We are comforted by the fact that he remains committed to SA cricket, and hope that he will be back serving the game that we all love. He has been and continues to be an inspiration to young cricketers and coaches," CSA Board Chair, Lawson Naidoo said.
