JOHANNESBURG – The Board of Directors of Cricket South Africa (CSA) has exercised its step-in rights at the Western Province Cricket Association (WPCA) and has granted CSA’s management team the mandate to appoint an administrator to take over the administrative, governance and financial affairs of WPCA.
According to CSA, this will be until all these respective functions have been placed on a satisfactory footing.
This has been done in terms of clauses 12.3 and 12.4 of CSA’s Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI).
It has come to the attention of CSA that the WPCA Board has been conducting business under distressed conditions in relation to, inter alia, the WPCA’s administrative, governance and financial affairs.
Pursuant to the exercise of its step-in rights, CSA has decided to suspend the WPCA board and to appoint Professor Andre Odendaal as administrator.
