Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) yesterday suspended today’s Elective Annual General Meeting for Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) over constitution violations.
In a letter addressed to ZC’s Acting Managing Director, the SRC says it received complaints regarding the nomination process in Mashonaland Central and Harare provinces.
“Violations of Zimbabwe Cricket’s own Constitution, and in particular Section 32 and 36 thereof have been alleged,” SRC director-general Prince Mupazviriho says in the letter.
“SRC is also in possession of a court application filed by Mr. Z. Damiso against Mr. W Chaitezvi and the Chairman of Zimbabwe Cricket as well as yourself (ZC Acting Managing Director).”
The SRC also made reference to a forensic audit report to investigations on issues of financial misconduct irregularities of a financial nature and the commission of economic offenses.
The report is also commissioned to determine the total revenue and examine the authenticity of all expenditure incurred from 2015 to 2017.
The SRC commissioned the audit to ascertain receivable and payable related to the 3 years.
ZC is littered with allegations of theft, fraud and corruption.
Today’s meeting was to elect a board ZC’s new board of directors.
“In light of all these and numerous other controversies relating to ZC and its financial and governance structures, the SRC, as resolved by the Board hereby directs that all or any electoral AGM for a new Board of Directors forthwith be suspended until further notice,” Mupazviriho said.
