ZPC Kariba terminate chairman’s contract amid growing discontent
ZPC Kariba Board of Governors yesterday terminated the contract of club chairman Tungamirai Mazarire among a raft of changes aimed at infusing a new lease of life into the Kariba-based club.
Amid discontent from the club’s faithful over the teams’ dismal showing after an impressive 2014 debut season, Kenneth Maswera has been appointed new Board of Governors chairman.
Fadzai Chisveto replaces Mazarire as the new club chairperson.
Sources told Kukurigo Sports the governors reinstated Gwinyai Dzorani as the club’s treasurer and maintained Robert Mamvura as the secretary general.
It is unclear how the new appointments, largely consisting of senior ZPC executives, will appease supporters who are demanding that non-company members should be allowed to contest executive positions upon producing their football-related CVs.
Reached for comment yesterday, Chisveto, maintained that the new changes were taken with the best interest of the club at heart.
“What we heard of were concerns from the community and not complaints, ”Chisveto told Kukurigo Sports.
“We heard these concerns but they were not the reason for the changes. The supporters want a winning team and this is what we are going to work towards this season,” she said.
ZPC Kariba is under pressure from the resort town community for failing to scale expected heights after a dramatic and promising performance when the club was promoted into the premiership in 2014.
The club’s Executive Committee led by former club chairman Mazarire particularly came under fire for micromanaging coaching icon Sunday Chidzambga and fettering his discretion.
The gaffer took a swipe at the team’s executive in a secretly recorded audio that went viral in October 2017.
