Nenzani Survives as CSA President

20 Feb 2020

Chris Nenzani has survived a potential vote of no confidence and will remain CSA President following last week’s board meeting.

That’s where a decision regarding his future could not be taken because it was not tabled on the agenda.

The motion to discuss whether Nenzani should be voted out is understood to be driven by the Central Gauteng Lions franchise and has the support of at least two other unions - KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape. However, CSA's Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI) is silent on whether a franchise has the procedural right to propose a motion, or if the motion must come from one of 14 provincial members.

According to ESPNcricinfo, the interpretation of the MOI will be considered in the coming weeks, which may yet lead to a motion to remove Nenzani. The process could take several weeks.

Until then, he will remain in office despite repeated calls for him to step down from stakeholders, including the South African Cricketers’ Association.

Nenzani was elected CSA President in 2013 and served two three-year terms before successfully lobbying to have the CSA constitution changed in order to extend his term for another year. He is due to remain in office until September.
