Cricket South Africa (CSA) interim board will host a Special General Meeting (SGM) on Saturday joined by CSA acting president Rihan Richards and Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture, Nathi Mthethwa.

Last week, the tussle between CSA's interim board and members' council came to end as they finally agreed on a new governance structure. The council agreed to the principle of an independent chairperson and a majority of independent board members.

Saturday's meeting will limited to the amendment of CSA's Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI).

Full statement:

The Interim Board of Cricket South Africa is pleased to announce that it has finalised all the necessary requirements to hold a Special General Meeting on Saturday, 17 April 2021 at 15h00.

Given the urgency of the situation, legal advice was sought regarding waiver of the usual notice period for an SGM. Following a Members' Council round robin resolution earlier today, the members have indicated that they will condone the defective notice.

The business of the meeting will be limited to the amendment of CSA's Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI). The MOI, together with the notice of the meeting, will be circulated to the Members' Council via its Acting President.

The Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture, Nathi Mthethwa, chair of the interim board, Stavros Nicolaou, together with CSA acting president Rihan Richards, will all deliver a short address at the SGM, which will be open to all media.
