The Grenada Cricket Association (GCA) has taken a decision to have its President Gabriel Henry step down.
The decision was reached during an extraordinary meeting of the GCA on Monday.
The cricket body moved against Henry in light of a criminal matter that is hanging over his head.
Henry who was destined to become the Candidate of the main opposition New National Party for the Constituency of St. David’s is accused of engaging in a public fracas with his female companion on New Year’s Day.
He has since been charged by the police for assault with a dangerous instrument: to wit a cutlass.
A reliable source told THE NEW TODAY Newspaper the decision taken by the GCA is in the best interest of protecting the image of the organization.
However, the source said the decision to have Henry step down is until the court matter is resolved.
The source said the GCA is being guarded by the public perception of Henry who has the task of leading the GCA and at a time when Grenada is preparing to host Zimbabwe in three international One-Day Internationals with the West Indies.
The three One-Dayers are scheduled for February 22, 24 and 26 at the Cricket Stadium at Queen’s Park, St. George’s.
The games will officially be launched next week.
The Vice-President Garvin Taylor will in the meantime act as President.
