CSA seeks Mbalula's blessing
CRICKET SA is hoping to win the backing of Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula in its efforts to improve the image of a tainted organisation.
Mbalula is expected to respond to Cricket SA tomorrow on the association's progress in implementing the findings of the Nicholson inquiry.
CSA acting president Willie Basson indicated yesterday that the board was hoping for a stamp of approval from the minister.
"The minister called the meeting and we will be hearing what he has to say. We are hoping for a positive response," Basson said.
Mbalula set up the Nicholson inquiry last year to bring to an end the bonus scandal in Cricket SA. Judge Chris Nicholson's committee recommended that the CSA board be restructured and that chief executive Gerald Majola be suspended and subjected to a disciplinary hearing.
CSA has carried out the recommendation on Majola and established an eight-member committee to examine how to restructure the board. The committee began its work earlier this week.
