Dy­namos plunge into lead­er­ship cri­sis

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Grace Chin­goma

A FRESH cri­sis has emerged at Dy­namos with club pres­i­dent Kenny Mubaiwa tak­ing a back seat in the run­ning of the team af­ter his de­ci­sion to fire as­sis­tant coach Mu­rape Mu­rape was over­turned by the board of di­rec­tors.

The Harare busi­ness­man hasn’t been at­tend­ing the club’s matches, of late, and yes­ter­day sources said he had taken a back seat in the ad­min­is­tra­tion of the Glam­our Boys.

The club’s lead­er­ship is al­ready a trun­cated one fol­low­ing the de­par­ture of sec­re­tary-gen­eral Web­ster Chikengezha who quit in May and is yet to be re­placed.

Chikengezha said the tur­moil at the club was cor­rod­ing his im­age.

“As it stands, go­ing for­ward there is a prob­lem at the club,” the sources said. “The pres­i­dent is no longer ex­er­cis­ing his pow­ers and at the mo­ment he is not mak­ing any de­ci­sion re­gard­ing Lloyd Mu­tasa’s fu­ture and nei­ther is he in­volv­ing him­self in dis­cus­sions re­lated to any plans for next sea­son. “He is not happy that his au­thor­ity was chal­lenged last week.” Board mem­ber Owen Chan­damale said he could not com­ment on the is­sues as board chair­man, Bernard Mar­riot, was the only one au­tho­rised to speak to the me­dia. Re­peated ef­forts to speak to Mar­riot or Mubaiwa were fruit­less yes­ter­day. Club trea­surer Web­ster Marechera said he was at­tend­ing a funeral in Nyanga and re­ferred all ques­tions to Mar­riot. Dy­namos will not be in ac­tion this week­end when the last eight teams plunge into Chibuku Su­per Cup quar­ter­fi­nals af­ter they were booted out by How Mine in the first round.
