Mthethwa holds constructive meeting with CSA

Sport, Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa says he has received a formal report confirming the resignation of the entire board of Cricket South africa (CSA) on Monday. This follows the Acting President Beresford Williams alongside Angelo Carolissen, John Mogodi, Donovan May, Tebogo Siko and Dheven Dharmalingam, who quit on Sunday. After the Members Council had deliberated and resolved that to best serve the interest of cricket in South africa, the entire board should resign which they did. All independent and non-independent directors have now resigned, CSA tweeted on Monday. The organisation said all resignations were with immediate effect except for three members, Zola Thamae, John Mogodi and Donovan May, who will remain as directors until the interim board structure has been appointed to ensure continuity and stability. According to the departments statement on Wednesday, Mthethwa has also received communication from CSA relating to his invitation to argue their case on why he should not proceed to intervene in their affairs. To this end, consultative meetings with the CSA Members Council, SASCOC and the South african Cricketers Association (SACA) were held throughout the course of the day, yesterday, the statement read. The meetings with South african sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) and SACA were intended to share the outcomes of the meeting with CSA for keeping key roleplayers abreast of the latest developments, the department explained. The meeting with the Members Council of CSA was constructive and the Minister expressed his appreciation of their leadership. The department said the next step is to finalise details of an interim board and conclude on a list of names. The Minister is said to announce further details by the end of this week.

Sascoc ordered to get its house in order

The Portfolio Committee on sports, Arts and Culture has warned the South african sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) to get its house in order to avoid jeopardising the countrys preparations for next years games in Tokyo, Japan. The committee raised the concern during a briefing on Sascocs preparations for its annual general meeting (AGM), and the arbitration process of the acting President, Barry Hendricks. Committee chairperson, Beauty Dlulane, questioned how the AGM is going to run smoothly in November, when there are already signs of distrust of the International Olympic Committee (IOL) facilitator, Sam Ramsamy, with some board members accusing him of favouritism and discriminating against some associations and sporting codes. We are very worried how Sascoc is going to monitor the AGM if the highest official of the IOL, who is going to look after the elections, is not trusted by some members and associations. "We want a speedy recovery of Sascoc to ensure the smooth preparations for Tokyo 2021, so that other member associations, like Cricket SA, can also be assisted to get their house in order, Dlulane said. The committee also heard that the Sascoc board took a resolution to discontinue all disciplinary proceedings against Hendricks and demanded reasons, as well as background, on the charges.
