The Cricket Kenya Normalization Committee has called for memoranda from the sport’s stakeholders on specific and proposed interventions as it seeks to return normalcy in the local game.
Speaking to the media for the first time since the Committee’s inauguration on March 16, the chairperson Lady Justice (Rtd.) Joyce Aluoch said the process has started in earnest.
The committee has already started the process of engaging Cricket Kenya’s key stakeholders, after a review of existing documents, mapped stakeholders, met staff, identified upcoming events for our national teams, established a Secretariat and facilitated vaccination of the national team players.
The result of the normalization process is aimed at finalisation of the Cricket Kenya Constitution and resumption of Cricket Kenya activities in the country.
