By: Lucky Khanyile
This is the loss that KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union (KZNCU) has recovered in the 2014/2015 year.
This is amongst the reasons that forced KZNCU to having an independent management committee to guide the operations and office barriers.
This was revealed after their appointing of the union’s presidency at the annual general meeting at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead.
The President of the union together with Vice-President, Fa-eez Jaffer and Ben Dladla, were re-elected to hold the reigns.
However will be joined by newly chosen Vice-President Rajesh Sookhay and Treasurer Michael Govender.
Sifiso Mtshali, Ruben Reddy, Rais Pearson, Dale Tomlinson and Dr Mpho Mhlongo will provide valuable, independent oversight. Jaffar revealed his delights on joining
forces with an experienced group of people in their areas of expertise.
“I wish to express my gratitude to all the independents for making themselves available to serve cricket in our province.
The sporting landscape in South Africa has changed in recent times and their expertise, skills and business acumen can only benefit the KZN Cricket Union and aid
in making the Union more professional,” he said.
The KZNCU made an unexpected turn of profit after hitting a snag, making a profit of R2.35 million. The union has been spending in the development of Sahara Stadium
before the domestic season commences on October 8.
Sunfoil Dolphins CEO, Pete de Wet said, “Almost R1.5 million was spent on upgrades to Sahara Stadium Kingsmead in the previous financial year and a further
R4-million has been earmarked for this coming financial year.
The results are already clear to see.”
