Dube, whose appointment was confirmed by the Minister of Education, Sport, Arts and Culture David Coltart yesterday becomes the ninth member of the new board appointed to run the supreme sport regulatory body for the next three years.
Dube joins the Joseph James lead board which also includes Edward Siwela, Jessimine Nyakatawa, Obediah T Moyo, FaraiKanyangarara, David Ellman-Brown, Aisha Tsimba and Miriam Mushayi.
In a statement confirming Dube’s appointment yesterday Coltart said: “I am pleased to announce the appointment of the ninth and final member of the Sports and Recreation Commission Board, Mr Ethan Dube, following approval having been received today from His Excellency the President RG Mugabe.
“His term of office will run from the 8th February 2013 to the 5th February 2016. Dube has represented Zimbabwe at both Hockey and Cricket and was a National Zimbabwe Cricket selector in 2004 and 2005,” Coltart said.
Dube was the Matabeleland Cricket Association chairman in 2005 after taking over from AhmetEsat but quit the post the following year in 2006 citing “confusion” in the administration of the game.
