South Africa’s Minister of Sport and Recreation, Fikile Mbalula is expected to release the third report of the Eminent Persons Group (EPG) on transformation in sport.
The announcement is scheduled to take place at the GCIS Tshedimosetso House in Pretoria on Monday.
The Minister will brief the media and delegates on progress made with regard to transformation in sport federations.
In 2014 EPG on Sport Transformation submitted the first Transformation report to Minister Mbalula.
The report focused on five National Federations; Rugby, Cricket, Football, Athletics and Netball and was then released to the public in March of 2014.
The EPG was appointed to assist the minister on monitoring and evaluating the current transformation process in sport, as outlined in the National Sport and Recreation Plan (NSRP).
This paved way for the signing of Transformation Agreements with the ‘Big 5’.
Minister Mbalula said the EPG will further avail itself to sports’ bodies that require assistance on achieving transformation targets.
“As sport, we also have a good story to tell as you might have seen in the recent past the ability of sport to unite our nation through hosting major sporting events.
“I can guarantee you that this report is not going to catch dust as there’s a programme of action,” said Mbalula
The Minister will publicly announce the findings, observations and recommendations of the report at a stakeholder engagement gathering.
