Sascoc have criticised sports minister Nathi Mthethwa’s decision to invoke the Sports Act stripping Crickt South Africa of their authority as cricket’s governing body in the country.
ShareCAPE TOWN – Sascoc have criticised sports minister Nathi Mthethwa’s decision to invoke section 13 (5) (c) of the Sports and Recreation Act, stripping all authority from Cricket South Africa as cricket’s governing body in the country.On Friday, Mthethwa informed CSA’s Members Council – the highest decision-making body in the organisation, comprising the 14 provincial presidents – and the Interim Board that he would be invoking the powers available to him in Act, thus halting funding to CSA, and more critically removing recognition of CSA as the governing authority for the sport in the country.
The decision was taken after CSA’s Members Council failed to implement the recommendations of the Nicholson Report.ALSO READ: CSA staff call for Minister to reconsider invoking Sports Act“Our considered view is that Section 13 of the Act needs to be read and applied in its entirety rather than selectively.

“We want to place it on record, two or even three wrongs don’t make a right, the fact that there are wrongs in CSA doesn’t mean we must flaunt governance process and the law to achieve our own ends,” said Sascoc.“You cannot forgo existing governance processes to impose Nicholson’s finding, however well intended they maybe, because in so doing you fall foul of the exact same thing you are trying to rectify. It does not take a paragon of correctness to see that.” headtopics.com

We believe that we can work together within our principles of democratic elective process and also to create a balance of independent specialists that will enhance governance, we need to do this patiently and considerably.Read more: IOL News »

ANC cadres are exceptionally good at dismantling/destroying things...just ask them to build anything in this country.... Rugby better watch out for Mthetwa. Now that he has destroyed the national summer sport, they are next for the chop. All sport will eventually be 'democratised' to the the level of soccer in this country, the usual anc standard, the lowest common denominator. Merit is a swearword in the anc vocabulary
