JOHANNESBURG - Cricket South Africa’s Members’ Council is well aware of the possible outcome of Sports Minister Nathi Mthethwa’s intervention in the organisation.
Mthethwa has decided to invoke his powers to step-in, after CSA’s affiliates, failed to ratify proposed changes to the organisation’s governance structures.
In a secret ballot, only six of the 14 affiliates voted for the changes.
"I wouldn't like to speculate what the minister will do," says Rihan Richards, CSA's acting president.
"But the powers of the minister are clearly defined in section 13.5 and it is something we are aware of," he says.
Richards says it will be up to the members to decide the which processes they will follow in dealing with matters going forward.
