The countdown to the KZNA Quadrennial General Meeting (QGM) has begun, but whether this is 10 days or 70 days will be a test of the club chairs’ integrity in a special general meeting (SGM) scheduled for Easter Saturday on April 3.

The SGM begins at 9 am, with the roughly 165 club chairpersons having to decide whether they are willing to break the KZNA constitution and allow the QGM to go ahead, or whether to call a “false start” and abide by the constitution, which would see a re-scheduling. Then, the QGM would require a new notice and full adherence to constitutional rules.

Challenging constitutions has seemingly become a South African trend, led by former president Jacob Zuma’s court appeals for personal benefit in attempting to control his required attendance by the state capture inquiry.
