Nairobi – The Cricket Normalization Committee chaired by Lady Justice Joyce Aluoch (retired) has finalized the drafting of a new constitution for cricket Kenya and is now inviting views from stakeholders before it can be ratified.
The committee was appointed by Sports CS Amina Mohamed on March 16 this year to find a solution for the ailing Cricket Kenya which has been marred for a long time.
The body was tasked with drafting a new constitution, organizing and holding elections, and initiating the resumption of cricket activities in the country.
The project comes after a series of engagements with the cricket world’s governing body, the International Cricket Council and extensive engagement with stakeholders since March of this year.
âWe are pleased to inform you that the Committee finalized the draft Constitution after receiving comments and views from various stakeholders.
âViews were gathered through a participatory process in which stakeholders met with the Committee either physically or virtually, and through the receipt of memoranda,â the cover letter reads.
âThe Committee would like to invite you to read the draft and send your comments to the Committee secretariat via the following email address: [email protected]
The Committee said the draft Constitution can also be viewed on the website of the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Heritage.
“Your comments should reach the secretariat no later than the close of business on October 4, 2021,” the statement said.
Besides finalizing the constitution, the committee formed by Sports CS Amina Mohamed on March 16 is also to organize and hold the Kenya Cricket Federation elections under the new constitution. The Committee was also tasked with setting up the modalities for the resumption of Cricket Kenya’s activities in the country.
The committee composed of President Lady Justice Aluoch, Judge (Rtd) Alnashir Visram (Vice-President), Ms. Jane Muigai-Kampuis, Eng. Morris Aluanga and Dr Walter Ongeti have since overseen the return of cricket leagues and competitions.
The National Women’s Cricket Team also competed and won the Kwibuka T20 Cup held in Rwanda, beating Namibia in the final on June 12.
The men’s team competed in the Pearl of Africa T20 series at Entebbe Cricket Oval, where they lost six points to the host nation in the Tri-Nation tournament which also included Nigeria.
