Two posts up for grabs at PSL AGM


Two positions will be up for grabs Saturday when the Premier Soccer League (PSL) holds an annual general meeting (AGM) ahead of the start of the new Castle Lager championship next week.

Hwange boss Joseph Zulu is awaiting confirmation to replace Highlanders chairman Themba Ndlela as the deputy to Twine Phiri — the chairman of the league’s board of governors.

Ndlela quit last year in the aftermath of the disastrous handling of the abandoned BancABC semi-final between Highlanders and Dynamos in August and the failure by the league to handle the case transparently.

Musa Gwasira who was the fixtures boss is no longer with the league after his club Lengthens was relegated, neither is Sihlangu Dlodlo, the Bantu Rovers chairman, who was the secretary-general in the board.

Chicken Inn secretary-general Tawengwa Hara is eyeing the fixtures position and is expected to battle it out with Monomotapa chairman Joseph Mukoki.

Sources said: “The battle for that post is between the two (Hara and Mukoki) and there is consensus that the two could share the two posts, one getting the fixtures and the other becoming the secretary-general.”

The post of secretary-general is largely ceremonial as the league has a chief executive officer in Kennedy Ndebele and executive secretary in Cuthbert Mutandwa, hence the big battle for the fixtures post.

Phiri will present his activity report of 2010 and focus on this season while Harrison Mbewe will present the league’s finances.

The meeting will also reconstitute other standing committees like finance, competitions, marketing, internal audit and development to assist in the running of the league.

Clubs will also discuss progress achieved since the Harare Declaration of 2009 and the major proposals for the new season which kicks off with the Charity Shield between Dynamos and Motor Action on March 6.

The league will officially initiate four new teams: Zimbabwe Saints, FC Platinum, Blue Ribbon and Masvingo United.
