There were no major surprises at the PSL quadrennial general meeting on Wednesday as Irvin Khoza was re-elected as the chairperson along with seven executive committee members.

Khoza has been at the helm since 2002 and his reign will continue for another four years.

The 72-year-old was elected unopposed at the meeting in Kempton Park, meaning that he would have served 22 years at the end of the new four-year term.

There were only two changes in the executive committee with Khumbulani Konco (Bloemfontein Celtics) and Jose Ferreira (Bidvest Wits) failing to retain their positions.

The next term requires patience as we deliberate on the preparations of the next generation. The next generation of leaders must begin to gradually take over the league.

Cape Town City boss John Comitis made a return to the executive after missing out four years ago.

The only newcomer is Stellenbosch’s CEO Rob Benadie.

Khoza thanked fellow club owners for having faith in his leadership.

“I would be remiss if I do not offer my gratitude to all of you who have afforded me the privilege of serving [the PSL]. I thank you for your support always,” Khoza said.

“Allow me to single out Kaizer Motaung who has never missed a meeting. We need to ensure that we don’t become an expedient league where rules are flexible and application is jaundiced.”

The Orlando Pirates boss said young leaders would be given prominent roles.

“The next term requires patience as we deliberate on the preparations of the next generation. The next generation of leaders must begin to gradually take over the league.

“In the next four years, the next generation must lead the way as we look to the future.”
