Cricket South Africa Postpone AGM Amid Leadership Crisis

Cricket South Africa have postponed their Annual General Meeting scheduled for this weekend.

The association had been set to appoint several new board members, but the forensic report into the conduct of former CEO Thabang Moroe may question the integrity of some of the nominees for those positions.

Cricket South Africa stated that it needs to take into consideration matters from the forensic report in the wake of the payments scandal involving former CEO Gerald Majola.

The findings and recommendations of the report needs to be studied and implemented while Cricket South Africa have admitted the need to account for the probe.

The Nicholson Commission who made the findings recommended that Cricket South Africa board be staffed by a lot of independent directors.

A press release stated that there are processes ongoing at Cricket South Africa:

“The review of the governance model of CSA on the outstanding matters recommended by the Nicholson Commission of Enquiry in its report” and

“The (a) review and implementation of the findings and recommendations made by Fundudzi Forensic Services Proprietary Limited (Fundudzi) in its report (Forensic Report) following completion of the forensic investigation conducted by Fundudzi into various governance issues within CSA during a period of 48 months from 2016 to 2019, and (b) formulation and adoption of a comprehensive roadmap.”

Cricket South Africa have accepted that their organisation has been maladministered and requires serious structural reform.

According to Cricket South Africa, these issues need various steps to be undertaken:

“Engagement with the Members Council on the various issues they have raised and ensure alignment for the stability of CSA;”

“Engagement with the Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture, SASCOC and other stakeholders of CSA;”

“The extension of the recruitment process for any Board and Board committee vacancies that may arise following completion of the above strategic review;”

“A detailed review of CSA’s Transformation strategy that takes account of the launch of the office of the Independent Transformation Ombudsman;” and

“The reconfiguration of the organisational structure to ensure that the remedial actions recommended by Fundudzi of the forensic review is implemented.”

Cricket South Africa will announce the new date for their Annual General Meeting soon.
