Minister Nathi Mthethwa has withdrawn the previously gazetted notice on the CSA, following the board and the Members Council’s inability to reach common ground on the revised MOI.
Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture, Nathi Mthethwa took to Twitter on Friday, 30 April 2021, to endorse a statement circulated by the state. The statement functioned as an update on the previously gazetted notice on Cricket South Africa (CSA). According to the statement, several attempts were made to get the CSA Board and Members Council to agree on the contents of the revised Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI), as part of the Nicholson Report on the governance of the sport.
Detailing the reasons for the withdrawal of the notice, the statement details the reasons for the minister’s decision as, “Shortly after the notice was published, a letter was received by the Minister’s office, signed by both CSA acting president Rihan Richards, and IB chairperson Stavros Nicolaou, confirming the unanimous decision taken by the MC to accept the new MOI by written resolution, as contemplated by Section 60 of the Companies Act.”
Thereafter, Minister Mthethwa initiated the process of withdrawing the notice.
