Dy­namos dis­miss false ind­aba

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Te­dious Manyepo Harare Bureau

PREMIER­SHIP gi­ants Dy­namos have dis­missed the ind­aba be­ing or­gan­ised by the club’s for­mer sons Ernest Kamba and Eric Aisam, at Prince Ed­ward next week, as yet an­other ma­li­cious at­tempt to wres­tle power from the bona-fide lead­er­ship.

The Kamba fac­tion have been ad­ver­tis­ing a no­tice of an ex­traor­di­nary meet­ing where, among the items on the agenda, they are look­ing at ap­point­ing a new board of direc­tors as well as ex­ter­nal au­di­tors.

Kamba and his part­ners have also called upon all Dy­namos sons to come in their num­bers for the meet­ing.

But Dy­namos board of direc­tors chair­man Bernard Mar­riot yes­ter­day dis­missed the pur­ported meet­ing as “yet an­other ma­li­cious and friv­o­lous at­tempt to cause con­fu­sion and di­vi­sions in the club’’.

Mar­riot said the Dy­namos board and the club’s ex­ec­u­tive led by Kenny Mubaiwa had be­gun re­view­ing the just-ended Premier­ship sea­son and were also putting in place mea­sures to en­sure the fallen gi­ants re­turn to the top of the tree on the do­mes­tic game.

DeMbare had a pa­thetic sea­son by their stan­dards and Mar­riot ad­mit­ted as much but ques­tioned the mo­tive of the Kamba fac­tion to rise when the re­sults on the pitch have not gone DeMbare’s way.

“It is true that we had a dif­fi­cult sea­son and it is not our style to fin­ish fifth but ev­ery team goes through a slump and even in Eng­land Manch­ester United failed to se­cure a Cham­pi­ons League spot be­cause they were not among the top four but it was no rea­son to try and change lead­er­ship.

“Where were these peo­ple when Dy­namos was win­ning?

“It shows that they are a bunch of at­ten­tion seek­ers who are try­ing to cause con­fu­sion at the club by call­ing for an il­le­git­i­mate meet­ing.

“We just want our stake­hold­ers to know that there is no such thing as an an­nual meet­ing of Dy­namos at Prince Ed­ward School or even an ex­traor­di­nary meet­ing of the club.

“Due no­tice will be served through the proper struc­tures and in line with the best busi­ness prac­tices when a real Dy­namos an­nual meet­ing is to be held,’’ Mar­riot said.

The Harare gi­ants’ le­gal ad­viser Her­bert Mu­tasa scoffed at the Kamba fac­tion’s an­tics say­ing “they can choose to gather and have cof­fee but noth­ing bind­ing will come out of that meet­ing”

“From a le­gal point of view, any­one who is not a share­holder of the in­sti­tu­tion called Dy­namos Pri­vate Lim­ited can­not con­vene a meet­ing be­cause they would be strangers to the sys­tem.

“What­ever comes out of that meet­ing is not bind­ing to the team what­so­ever. As far as I know, Bernard Mar­iot and the other share­hold­ers can con­vene a meet­ing to dis­cuss is­sues to do with Dy­namos Pri­vate Lim­ited,” he said.
