Board­room coup loom­ing at Dy­namos

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

player in an in­ter­view yes­ter­day. He asked not to be named but said “peo­ple will know dur­ing that meet­ing in Oc­to­ber”.

The for­mer player said the club presently had no board and Bernard Mar­riot Lusengo had im­posed him­self as the Dy­namos board of di­rec­tors’ chair­man.

“Th­ese guys used po­lit­i­cal mus­cle to bull­doze their way into the sys­tem. Mar­riot is a for­mer player yes, but he was never in the board. The con­sti­tu­tion clearly states that a com­pany must be formed and that com­pany was formed in the 1990s as Dy­namos Pri­vate Lim­ited, which would then run Dy­namos Foot­ball Club, among other SBUs, but we have peo­ple con­cen­trat­ing on the foot­ball team only,” said the for­mer player who made his de­but for the Glam­our Boys in the 1970s and went on to win a num­ber of ac­co­lades, in­clud­ing league ti­tles.

He said when the board was ap­pointed, jeal­ousy from those who were not part of the board crept in and they started us­ing their po­lit­i­cal con­nec­tions to desta­bilise the ship.

“The courts en­dorsed the con­sti­tu­tion which is our ba­sis of ar­gu­ment. We want to meet with the sup­port­ers so that we ap­prise them on the cor­rect thing. For­mer play­ers and found­ing mem­bers must run Dy­namos Pvt Ltd, which will have the power to ap­point mem­bers of the ex­ec­u­tive to run the foot­ball club,” said the ex-player.

Sources said club chair­man Kenny Mubaiwa is likely to be shown the door and re­placed by for­mer sec­re­tarygen­eral Web­ster Chikengezha, who is be­lieved to have been the sta­bil­is­ing force while still at the club. The club is yet to re­place Chikengezha. Mubaiwa and Mar­riot-Lusengo are be­lieved to be the only ones run­ning the club at the mo­ment.

A con­fused state of af­fairs was wit­nessed last week when as­sis­tant coach Mu­rape Mu­rape was said to have been fired but 24 hours later he sat on the bench when DeMbare took on Tsholot­sho. — @skhu­moyo2000
