ZIMBABWE Cricket (ZC) says it has almost completed its on-going exercise to amend the current constitution which expires mid-next year.
The chairman of the ZC Con
stitutional Review and Transition Committee, Tavengwa Mukuhlani, told IndependentSport yesterday that his committee had come up with a proposed amended constitution and will soon approach provincial associations to obtain their input and approval for the changes.
“We have set the framework for a new constitution. In terms of the groundwork, we have gone very far. We have looked at everything, including the SRC (Sports and Recreation Commission) recommendations and the national constitution. By the time we get to the AGM in August, the issue of the constitution will be done,” Mukuhlani said.
Mukuhlani also revealed that integration work has been dropped from his committee after the constitutional committee swallowed up the former Integration and Implementation Committee.
“There is no work with regards to integration now. As you are aware, we are now fully integrated in our cricket, and the mandate of the integration committee has fallen away,” Mukuhlani said.
“It was a board decision that what remained to be looked at on the integration side had to be shifted to the constitutional review,” he added.
Meanwhile, Mukuhlani, who is also chairman of the Mashonaland Cricket Association, said the provincial association was not yet harmonised.
“The issue with Mashonaland is tricky. Right now things are quiet, but not settled. We are currently playing our winter league, and Takashinga, who we had invited, are playing their own. That shows factionalism within the province. But the good thing is that cricket is going on and everyone is playing,” Mukuhlani said. – Staff Writer.
