HOCKEY As­so­ci­a­tion of Zim­babwe (Haz) pres­i­dent Humphrey Chig­wedere will bid farewell to the or­gan­i­sa­tion at its elec­tive an­nual gen­eral meet­ing at Chisip­ite High School in Harare on Satur­day.

Chig­wedere is not seek­ing re-elec­tion af­ter nom­i­na­tions for the posts were re­leased yes­ter­day. Grant Camp­bell is the only nom­i­nee for the Haz top post.

“One of the main items on the agenda is the elec­tion of a new ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee, which will run the af­fairs of the as­so­ci­a­tion for the next two years in terms of the Haz con­sti­tu­tion. All the posts are be­ing con­tested for,” reads a com­mu­niqué from Haz.

Sarah Ben­nett and Gavin Stephens are seek­ing re-elec­tion as sec­re­tary and trea­surer re­spec­tively.

Vir­ginia Ross, Pros­per Machuve (Mashona­land Cen­tral Hockey Board), Maxwell Maku­vise, Prince Mwale (Harare Hockey Board and cur­rent) and Kalpesh Parshotam (Bu­l­awayo/ Mate­bele­land Hockey Board) have been nom­i­nated for the post of ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee mem­bers.

In terms of the Haz con­sti­tu­tion, nom­i­na­tions have to be sub­mit­ted at least seven days be­fore the AGM and nom­i­na­tions are done by mem­ber as­so­ci­a­tions and out­go­ing ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee mem­bers.

The process of ver­i­fi­ca­tion of these nom­i­na­tions will be done be­fore the an­nual gen­eral meet­ing just to en­sure trans­parency and good gov­er­nance are ad­hered to.

Dur­ing the same week­end, Haz will host its premier club com­pe­ti­tion, the Haz Cup.

They will also hold an awards cer­e­mony where the team of the year, ad­min­is­tra­tor of the year, ju­nior sportswoman of the year, ju­nior sports­man of the year, sportswoman of the year, sports­man of the year, tech­ni­cal of­fi­cial of the year as well as jour­nal­ist of the year will be hon­oured.

The new ex­ec­u­tive will be im­me­di­ately seized with pre­par­ing the Zim­babwe Un­der-21 Ladies side for the up­com­ing Hockey World Cup set for San­ti­ago, Chile, from Novem­ber 24 to De­cem­ber 5. — @skhu­moyo2000
