Cricket South Africa rejects Sascoc demand to ’step aside’, will seek legal advice
JOHANNESBURG – Cricket South Africa has rejected the demand by the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee for its Board and senior officials to "step aside".
Cricket SA's Members Council met late on Thursday night after Sascoc, in a letter signed by its president, Aleck Skhosana demanded the CSA board, company secretary and acting CEO "step aside". Sascoc wants to appoint a task team to investigate CSA.
"CSA, including its Members’ Council, does not agree with the resolution taken by Sascoc and has not had the opportunity to engage with Sascoc on various issues raised in the communication," CSA said in a statement issued at 1am on Friday.
Sascoc had stated on Thursday in its letter it had met CSA twice last week.
"In addition, CSA is taking legal advice regarding the basis on which Sascoc has sought to intervene in the business affairs of CSA."
Cricket SA added it remained open to meeting again with Sascoc "to understand its position".
