Mthethwa says the CSA has until the 27th of October to make written representations before the start of government intervention.
The department’s spokesperson is Masechaba Khumalo says, “He [the minister] has given CSA a certain time frame to stipulate as to why he should not exercise his decision to intervene. What that intervention means will be communicated by the minister himself. Everybody should be worried.”
In the video below, SASCOC reiterates its calls for CSA Board to step down:
“Cricket is a loved sport and we want to get it back in play with following strict health protocols. With that said, we have to abide by the law and ensure that we prevent the spread of the coronavirus. We don’t make the laws but we have to uphold them,” adds Khumalo.
