SRC en­gages box­ing, hand­ball of­fi­cials

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo Se­nior Sports Re­porter

THE Sports and Recre­ation Com­mis­sion (SRC) will hold meet­ings with the Zimbabwe Box­ing Fed­er­a­tion and Zimbabwe Hand­ball Fed­er­a­tion (ZHF) to come up with an elec­tion road map for the two as­so­ci­a­tions at the end of this month.

The meet­ings have been slated for Oc­to­ber 26 and 29 re­spec­tively at the SRC of­fices in Harare.

This fol­lows the sus­pen­sion of the two as­so­ci­a­tions in Fe­bru­ary for gross vi­o­la­tion of pro­vi­sions of the SRC Act

e two as­so­ci­a­tions failed to sub­mit their au­dited bal­ance sheet and in­come and ex­pen­di­ture state­ment from 2011-2015.

The ZHF failed to op­er­ate as a na­tional as­so­ci­a­tion by fail­ing to con­vene a spe­cial gen­eral meet­ing to elect a sub­stan­tive ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee.

“The meet­ings will dis­cuss the el­i­gi­bil­ity of the mem­bers, con­fir­ma­tion of the two as­so­ci­a­tions’ reg­is­tered con­sti­tu­tions. We are kindly invit­ing the stake­hold­ers of the two na­tional sport as­so­ci­a­tions to at­tend the meet­ings so that we can bring fi­nal­ity to the gov­er­nance is­sues which have been bog­gling the two as­so­ci­a­tions”, said Joseph Muchechetere, the SRC act­ing direc­tor gen­eral.

Last week the Min­istry of Sport and Recre­ation, through the SRC, ap­pointed an in­terim Wushu com­mit­tee fol­low­ing a three-year ban of the Gil­bert Makowa-led ex­ec­u­tive for vi­o­lat­ing pro­vi­sions of the SRC Act.
