Nairobi — The Cricket Normalisation Committee chaired by Lady Justice Joyce Aluoch (retired) has finalized the drafting a new Constitution for Cricket Kenya and now invites views from stakeholders before it can be ratified.
The Committee was appointed by Sports CS Amina Mohamed in March 16 this year to find a solution for the troubled Cricket Kenya that has been marred by wrangles for a long time.
The body was tasked to draft a new constitution, organize and hold elections and undertake resumption of cricket activities in the country.
The draft comes after a series with engagements with cricket world governing body, the International Cricket Council and extensive engagements with stakeholders since March this year.
“We are happy to inform you that the Committee has finalised the draft Constitution upon receiving the comments and views from various stakeholders.
“The views were gathered through a participatory process whereby stakeholders met the Committee either physically or virtually, and through receipt of memoranda,” the cover letter reads.
“The Committee wishes to invite you to read the draft and forward any comments to the Committees secretariat through the following email address: email@example.com
The Committee said the Draft Constitution can also be accessed on the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Heritage website.
