Sport, Arts and Culture Minister, Nathi Mthethwa, has announced the appointment of Kugandrie Govender as acting Chief Executive Officer for Cricket South Africa (CSA).
Govender, who is the first woman to lead the cricket organisation, replaces Jacques Faul who stepped down from the role earlier this week.
Mthethwa met the CSA Board earlier this week and noted the resignation of Faul from his position as well as Chris Nenzani's resignation from his role as President.
Mthethwa welcomed the swift appointment of a replacement in Govender who had previously been CSA’s chief commercial officer,
"The appointment will certainly show an improvement in the composition of the top structure of CSA’s management," said the department.
According to the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture, it was clear at Monday’s meeting that CSA was going through troubling times and any steps aimed at restoring stability to the organisation were welcomed.
“I still expect the undertakings made by the CSA at the meeting to be honoured and accordingly, look forward to CSA’s urgent response to the substantive issues I have raised with their delegation,” Mthethwa said.
Govender’s short-term contract will run until the end of next month, which will include the Annual General Meeting on September 5. The Minister has wished Govender success in her new role.
