The outgoing Tando Ganda concluded his innings last night, when his term as president of Border Cricket at the Border Cricket annual general meeting came to an end.
Based in Alice, Mr Ganda joined schools cricket as a coach while teaching in the Middledrift, Mdantsane and Alice regions. While busy with schools cricket, he served as secretary of the Alice Cricket Board and then as its president for more than 10 years.
Ganda joined the Border Cricket Board in 2002, where he served on various committees. He then served as deputy president of Border Cricket from 2007 until 2013 and was elected president of Border Cricket in 2013. He is also a non-independent director for the Cricket Eastern Cape franchise (Warriors).
The members council thanked Ganda for his liberal leadership and long-serving service to Border Cricket over decades.
Mr Simphiwe Ndzundzu was the only nomination for the position of president and is no stranger to the Border structures. Previously a selector for Border Cricket, he has been involved with Good Hope Cricket Club for many years and was the chairman of the King Williams Town Members Structure. He is a keen sportsman and has participated in several marathons including the Comrades. He is a forensic auditor by profession and has also been the vice-president for the past six years.
Successful voting took place for vice-president and Mr Ngqaleko Rubushe was elected. Rubushe used to be an executive member of the then Border Cricket Board and has been chairman of the East London West structure and an integral part of the Club Cricket Committee for several years.
Dr Zandisile Dweba, an independent director and chairman of HR, also ended his term. He will be replaced by Ms Thenji Ntoni, who has been his understudy and an alternate director for the past few years.

Cyril Hartland (Non-Independent Director), Mr Mfundo Macanda (Non-Independent Director), Ms Penny Elworthy (Independent Director), Adv.
