LEAGUE champions Dynamos could be faced with an embarrassing lawsuit involving the club’s groundsman.
Weston Kachote, who maintains the club’s training ground Zimphos, alleges that the Harare giants have reneged on its contractual agreement for the last two seasons.
Kachote, who earns $400, claims that the club owes him 18 months’ salary and has engaged his legal team to force the club to settle the bill.
“I have engaged my lawyers. They wrote a letter to the club yesterday (Tuesday) asking them to pay within a period of seven days. I will not say much, but will give you more details after those seven days or after the club has responded,” Kachote said yesterday.
However, the club says it is not yet aware of the development.
“I am not yet aware of that. It has not yet come to my office,” club secretary-general Webster Chikengezha said.
It’s shocking how the club, which grossed over $200 000 in prize money in the last two seasons after winning almost all the cup competitions on offer, could have failed to pay their groundsman and now faces an embarrassing law suit.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe’s only representative in Caf Cup competitions this year FC Platinum have released their squad for the 12th edition of the Caf Confederations Cup.
The miners have kept the core of the squad from last season with only four new faces added.
The quartet who have been included are Brian Muzondiwa, Wellington Kamudyariwa from Black Rhinos and Shabanie Mine respectively, Nigel Papias promoted from the team’s junior side and Emmanuel Mandiranga who switched from How Mine,Coach Norman Mapeza chose to stick with his squad from last season with the likes of Wisdom Mutasa, Tatenda Dzumbunu, Petros Mhari, Thabani Kamusoko and Aaron Katebe, all key players last season, making the cut.
Veterans Nelson Maziwisa and Daniel Vheremu, who saw very little action last season, also made it into the squad.
However, there was no place for central defender James Marufu, Tarisai Rukanda and Ashley Mukwenya who all failed to impress since joining the club from town rivals Shabanie Mine.
