HIGH­LANDERS have ap­pointed long-serv­ing board mem­ber Jimmy Ncube as the club’s new pres­i­dent, while Mathew Sibindi re­places him as sec­re­tary of the board of di­rec­tors.

Ncube re­places Jonathan Themba Mh­langa, who died last Thurs­day after a long ill­ness and was buried at Lady Stan­ley Ceme­tery in Bu­l­awayo.

Mh­langa, who had been in­ac­tive in club busi­ness due to ill health, died at the age of 81.

“There have been new de­vel­op­ments that have taken place at High­landers FC after the pass­ing on of the club pres­i­dent.

“JS Ncube, who has been the club sec­re­tary for a long time, has taken over as the club pres­i­dent and Mathew Sibindi has suc­ceeded him as the new club sec­re­tary of the board of di­rec­tors,” said board chair­man and busi­ness­man Mgcini Nkolomi.

Ncube is a found­ing mem­ber of the High­landers board of di­rec­tors and has been a board mem­ber since the late 1960s when it was led by the late Mt­shena Sidile. He be­came board sec­re­tary in 1974. “I feel be­trayed by my col­leagues for putting such a heavy load on me,” Ncube jok­ingly said.

He said be­ing club pres­i­dent re­quires a lot of self­dis­ci­pline and high moral stan­dards.

“Ev­ery­body looks up to you for so­lu­tions all the time, but I be­lieve that as long as we pull to­gether, some­thing which I have al­ways seen at this in­sti­tu­tion, we will be able to find so­lu­tions to what­ever chal­lenges the club comes across,” said Ncube.

Turn­ing to the per­for­mance of the team, Ncube urged the boys to keep on do­ing well and said any­thing was pos­si­ble come end of the sea­son.

“I will be so hon­oured if the boys go all the way and lift the league ti­tle as well as the Chibuku Su­per Cup.

“It will be a be­fit­ting hon­our to our late pres­i­dent Mh­langa and in­deed a cher­ished gift to me and the rest of the High­landers fam­ily,” said Ncube.
