CSA Chief, four Board Members resign
Beleaguered Cricket South Africa (CSA) Acting President Beresford Williams has resigned along with four other Board Members, the organisation said on Sunday.
The Cricket Board has been plagued by claims of mismanagement with a damning internal report providing a long list of concerns about the actions of various staff members.
Sports Minister Nathi Mthethwa had told the International Cricket Council (ICC) that he intended to intervene in the running of the Board unless it committed to governance reforms by 27 Oct.
“Acting President of CSA Beresford Williams has handed in his resignation with immediate effect,” the CSA said on its Twitter feed.
The CSA Members’ Council met on Thursday to discuss strategies to solve the crisis following the Sports Minister’s ultimatum.
“One of these approaches was that if the Board would need to step down for the best interest of CSA and cricket as a whole, the Board would then do so,” CSA said.
