Cape Town - The Members’ Forum of Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Sunday made the necessary amendments at a special general meeting to the articles of their Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI) to bring them into line with the changes CSA has made to its corporate governance structures.

“This effectively completes the process in terms of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between CSA and the Honourable Minister of Sport and Recreation, Mr Fikile Mbalula”, commented CSA Acting President Willie Basson.

“We are perfectly satisfied that we have stayed close to Judge (Chris) Nicholson’s recommendations and have in many instances exceeded them. We have also laid down the guidelines under which the Members’ Forum and the Board of Directors will operate in terms of the new dispensation.

“One of the final steps will be for the current board to receive the nominations for the five independent directors from the Independent Nominations Committee which will take place on October 14. Once these nominations have been accepted, they will be appointed by the Members’ Forum at the annual meeting.”

Basson also reported back to the board on the recent International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting at which the policy of government involvement in national cricket body’s affairs has been defined.

“The policy does not prevent a government from investigating the affairs of a member board in order to ascertain whether a criminal offence has been committed, including fraud, dereliction of directors’ duties or contravention of any relevant legislation,” commented Basson.

“As far as CSA is concerned we are totally in the clear as I declared our recent procedures at the ICC Board meeting in March and they understood our processes and the reasons for these decisions.”

The board was also informed that the disciplinary hearing of suspended CSA CEO Gerald Majola had commenced on September 28 and was scheduled for completion on October 11. The civil case to recover bonuses from Majola and the former Chief Operating Officer, Don McIntosh, would take longer because of the two-year backlog on the court roll.
