Cricket South Africa (CSA) is not unaffected by what we have all witnessed happening across our country and we stand in solidarity with those who have been impacted and affected by the riots that have taken place in parts of the country in the last few days, during a time when our country is also devastated by the third wave of the COVID-19 virus.
As a national federation CSA would like to relay its sympathies to those who have lost loved ones, livelihoods, property and businesses during this time. Now, more than ever, it is important to stand together with our fellow citizens. With the International Mandela Day coming up on 18 July, it is an even more poignant reminder of Madiba’s principles of unity and the ideal of the Rainbow Nation that was part of his dream of “an Africa which is at peace with itself”.
Said Pholetsi Moseki, CSA’s Acting Chief Executive Officer “Cricket South Africa stands with all of South Africa through this difficult period and we implore all peace loving compatriots to stand up and play their part to protect the gains of our democracy, because as Cricket, we too, choose to play our part in rebuilding our country”.
