Arbitrators demand $1 700 for Hwange-Dynamos case


THE Commercial Arbitration Centre has asked for $1 700 to hear the case in which Hwange is challenging the decision of the Zifa Appeals Committee to uphold the results of their 4-2 loss to Dynamos in May.


Troubled Hwange, fighting relegation, lost to Dynamos on a day that their coaches Nation Dube and Mebelo Njekwa were allegedly assaulted by DeMbare marshals before the match.

A Premier Soccer League (PSL) Disciplinary Committee had ruled that the match be replayed at a neutral venue, but Dynamos sought recourse from the Zifa Appeals Committee and the results of the game were upheld.

However, Hwange were not satisfied with that decision and wrote to Zifa, seeking redress from the Muchadeyi Masunda-chaired arbitration court.

On Sunday, the coalminers’ secretary Burzil Dube told NewsDay Sport that Zifa wrote to him last week notifying the club that the arbitration centre had asked for $1 700 to hear their case.

“Zifa chief executive officer Jonathan Mashingaidze sent me an e-mail last week to say that arbitration had asked for $1 700 to hear our case. We are going ahead with that case. We are going to pay. We have well-wishers who are willing to pay that amount for the case to be heard by arbitration,” Dube said.

He however, could not be drawn to say when they will be making the payment.
