At its recent Annual General Meeting held on Thursday 21 November 2019, the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) Board paid tribute to its outgoing Vice Chairperson Sifiso Nzuza, for having served the CMA with distinction in various capacities for a period of 19 years, acknowledging the honesty, integrity, independence, courage, conviction, dignity and decorum with which he had represented the Association, and thanked him for outstanding and longstanding service.

 

Elections were also conducted at the Annual General Meeting in compliance with the CMA Constitution, which provides for staggered elections in alternating years in terms of which four Board members are elected to a two-year term of office in odd years and five members in even years.

 

The election process was overseen by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC).  

 

With the CMA being founded as an Association, the main function of the Board is corporate governance, the formulation of the strategic policies of the organisation and ensuring the sustainability of The Ultimate Human Race. Importantly, the Board is further tasked with retaining the world-class standards, ethos and traditions that are synonymous with this iconic event. 

 

The following members were elected to the Board for the forthcoming two-year term of office:

  • Patricia Freeman
  • Isaac Ngwenya
  • Zinhle Sokhela
  • Cheryl Winn

 

The remaining Board members whose term of office will expire in November 2020 are:

  • Linda Hlongwa Madlala
  • Celi Makhoba
  • Steve Mkasi
  • Mqondisi Ngcobo

 

Cheryl Winn was re-elected as Chairperson while Mqondisi Ngcobo is the newly elected Vice Chairperson.  

 

At its first monthly meeting following the AGM which was held on Wednesday 27 November, the CMA Board opted in accordance with CMA’s Constitution to co-opt Les Burnard, as well as to re-appoint outgoing Board member, Adrian Stowell, to fill a vacancy, which occurred with the resignation from the Board of outgoing Vice Chairperson, Sifiso Nzuza.

 

The complete CMA Board is therefore as follows:

 

  • Cheryl Winn, Chairperson
  • Mqondisi Ngcobo, Vice Chairperson
  • Les Burnard
  • Patricia Freeman
  • Linda Hlongwa-Madlala
  • Celi Makhoba
  • Steve Mkasi
  • Isaac Ngwenya
  • Zinhle Sokhela
  • Adrian Stowell

 

In accordance with its Constitution one further Board member may be co-opted at the discretion of the Board at their next sitting.
