CSA faces another postponement

2012-11-24 21:14

Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) annual general meeting, which is supposed to take place on Friday, could be postponed again.

According to a highly placed source, the postponement was based on the arbitration decision that went against CSA.

Advocate Norman Arendse, who was initially earmarked to be the chairman of the independent board, made up of Louis von Zeuner, Mohammad Iqbal Khan, Geoff Whyte, Dawn Mokhobo and Vusi Pikoli, was snubbed on the grounds of his honorary lifetime membership with the Western Province Cricket Association.

“The AGM will be postponed until the non-independent board members have signed the memorandum of understanding,” the source said.

“We hope to have changes to the articles by the end of the end of the year and hopefully the AGM will take place sometime towards the end of January.”

One of the guidelines for independent board members is that they cannot have an association with cricket in an administrative capacity in the past three years.

Arendse was CSA’s president from 2007 and 2008 before he resigned, citing a lack of support from fired chief executive Gerald Majola and the 11 affiliates.

Arendse said: “They must do what is right and they must do what their constitution requires them to do. They must follow the ruling of the arbitration.”

Another source close to the action confirmed the postponement, but said there were certain issues that needed to be ironed out before the AGM went ahead.

“There are legal issues, like the amendment of the articles and meeting with the South African Sports Council and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) and the sports ministry to sort out the number of independents and non-independents who will make up the new board,” the source said.

CSA acting president Willie Basson was unavailable to comment at the time of going to print.
