EP Rugby CEO, Mr Anele Pamba, has resigned from his post with immediate effect. This news has come as a tremendous shock to the staff and Executive of EP Rugby.
Mr Pamba was the EPRU Deputy President in 2008 and agreed to take up the interim CEO position in 2009, up until such a time when the Kings gained ascendency into Super Rugby: a goal which was attained a couple of months ago.
EPRU president Cheeky Watson paid tribute to Mr Pamba’s contribution over the years “of course this decision comes as a shock to many of us, and certainly Anele’s (Mr Pamba’s) enthusiasm and dedication will be sorely missed. However, we cannot prevent him from wanting to pursue other avenues and projects and we certainly wish him well in his future endeavours”.
General Manager, Mr Charl Crous, will act in the CEO position up until such a time when a fulltime replacement is found to resume the CEO duties.
