Johannesburg - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Saturday resolved by an overwhelming majority to pass a vote of No Confidence in its President, Dr. Mtutuzeli Nyoka. They also passed the subsequent motion for him to stand down as President and Chairman of the Board of Directors with immediate effect.

Dr. Nyoka did not attend the meeting on grounds of ill health but did send a deposition that was read out and recorded in the minutes.

The Members’ Forum after deliberation decided that Dr. Noyoka was not in a position to offer leadership. They also resolved to appoint the current vice-president, Mr. AK Khan, as acting President until the next annual meeting in the middle of next year.

Mr. Khan said he was both honoured and humbled by the appointment. “Honesty, integrity and team work are the key characteristics that I intend to bring to the position. I thought our recent Board meeting in Port Elizabeth in August was a watershed moment of unity going forward. We must maintain, preserve and build on that unity.”

The Members’ Forum was also informed that the process of appointing a Legal and Compliance Manager was well advanced and the appointment should be made shortly.

The Audit and Risk Committee will be meeting in November to discuss the policies, procedures and draft documentation in order to present it to the Board for adoption at its first meeting of 2012 in January.

These will streamline the financial policies and procedures, the remuneration policies and procedures and the human resources policies and procedures among other things.

The Members’ Forum was also informed that the issue of the election of the Eastern Province Cricket Board President was a domestic one for the province and would only become an issue for CSA once it was brought before the Board of CSA.

    A disgrace to Cricket everywhere. Makes the antics of the ANC look normal.

    Mr Khan, if you bring your side we, the supporters, will carry you on our hands. Will you enable us to carry you? Bringing your side involves, inter alia, that you ensure that only the best players get selected for all matches. We are fed up with the way CSA has managed the game in recent years.

    "Honesty, integrity" .... you have to be joking! How can these clowns at CSA use these words? Do they have no shame?
