As a result, acting president Beresford Williams and several other board members have handed over their resignations. The board members, who have vacated their spots are five members and along with Williams did the same on Sunday Morning.
Minister of Sport Nathi Mthethwa issued Cricket South Africa (CSA) a deadline to formulate a new interim or provincial governance structure to avoid government interference. The list of people who have resigned along with Beresford Williams are Eastern Province’s Donovan May‚ Limpopo Cricket’s John Mogodi‚ Tebogo Siko from the Northerns Cricket Union and Boland’s Angelo Carolissen.
