Chunga eight points away from PSL


EASTERN Region Division One football side Hippo Valley are eight points away from claiming the sole ticket into the Premier Soccer League after registering a convincing 4-1 win against financially-crippled Mkwasine in Chiredzi on Sunday.


Renco Mine, who handed Moses Chunga his second defeat of the campaign last weekend, came stuck against Mutare City Rovers after being knocked down 1-0 at Sakubva.

Mutare City Rovers remained in second position with 43 points from 23 matches, Hippo Valley are at the summit of the log standings with 57 points with seven games before the season’s curtain comes down.

Mkwasine almost failed to fulfill their match against Hippo because of their financial crisis and they came late for the match which however went on.

In an interview with NewsDay Sport yesterday, Hippo Valley chairman Tarisai Mudambanuki said that only a disaster will stop them from gaining promotion.

“If we can win our next matches, perhaps two of them, then we will gain promotion.

“The stage has already been set, there were fireworks today (Sunday) and fans are really sure that we have secured the ticket,” he said.

“What is important at the moment is that we should continue to play our normal football and currently, I am happy with how the team is playing.

“Every team always aims to beat us, so we need to be at our best always,” he added.


  1. If we are serious with our national team, Bambo should be roped in at national level, we can’t afford to ignore his expertise. The man is a tactician and a genius. ZIFA must swallow its pride and engage Bambo at national team level.

  2. Leave Bambo out of the national team. ZIFA rejected him and opted for their yesmen at the expense of our beatiful game of soccer. Chunga must only work with those who appreciate his excessive talent. Not those vultures at ZIFA or DYNAMOS crooks deserve Chunga. Chunga must be the next ZIFA chairman. You might argue kuti haana chikoro but vanacho vakaitei.

  3. Well done razor man you have shown Zimbabwe that you are a good coach bcoz they were a lot who doubted your abilities especially some known Caps United fans, but now i think you have proven yourself that you can do the job & you are one of the best coaches aroung. Pliz Chunga don’t run away from that club as soon as they gain promotion we want continuity.

  4. You can take away everything from Chunga but what you cannot is the football in him. Kuti Chunga ndiko kuti bhora muno muZim. Keep it up Moses!
