High noon for Mutasa

THE future of Dynamos coach Lloyd Mutasa has been thrown into doubt with the club leadership expected to meet on Thursday this week to review the team’s dreadful start to the season which has seen them collect just three points from a possible 21.

Mutasa’s men fell 1-0 to archrivals Caps United through a Denver Mukamba goal at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday, a defeat that left the team rooted second from the bottom on the log standings, and 16 points behind leaders Ngezi Platinum.

Dynamos chairman Keni Mubaiwa yesterday said they were worried with the way the team continued to slide and have given Mutasa and his backroom staff four matches to save their jobs.

“We want to know where we are falling short. We will meet on Thursday with the technical team to get their side,” Mubaiwa said.

Following the latest defeat, probably the most painful to the Dynamos fans so far, a section of the Dynamos supporters have called for Mutasa to be relieved his job.

“I know it’s hard to lose a match for us all, but we will not rush into making such a decision. Maybe if the situation does not improve in the next three or four matches, we will be thinking differently. We could change the coach today and results remain the same. We need to first interrogate and see if there are other problems that are causing the team to perform the way it is doing,” Mubaiwa added.

DeMbare’s next four matches are against struggling Bulawayo City this weekend, followed by a trip to Chapungu, then a Harare derby against Harare City before travelling to Bulawayo for a date with Bulawayo Chiefs.

Mutasa has blamed the departure of chief striker Christian Ntouba as the main reason for the team’s dreadful display.

His argument could hold some water after his strikers, in particular Quality Kangadze, wasted glorious chances against Caps United. Had the strikers converted half of the chances they created, Dynamos could have won the match.

But Mubaiwa said Mutasa will have to forget about Ntouba and find other means to get the goals.


The Cameroonian, who had eight months still on his contract, quit the club over non-payment of signing-on fees and allowances.

“We cannot continue to mourn about Ntouba. We should get over him and move on. One man cannot make a team. We won matches in his absence last season and we should win without him this year. We will work with players who want to be part of the team. It’s only a matter of winning one match and we will be up and running,” Mubaiwa reckons.

Mukamba, on loan from Dynamos, scored the solitary goal of the match against his paymasters, and to rub salt to the wound, and celebrated it wildly.

  1. there is no high noon nor is there any future to talk about this mutasa crap has messed up and he ought to be given a sack thats the long and short of it, he is now doing a jonathan moyo act to dynamos thus trying to destroy it without trace from within and we say NO NO.

    1. we need to look closely at how Dynamos is being managed. How can a team be on a rebuilding exercise year in and year out. Mubaiwa ought to know this. Mutasa and his technical team have done a wonderful Job of putting together a team that is able to compete for the past two seasons. Thank You Mutasa. Lets rally behind the team and results will come very soon. I have watched the team play on several games, its not all that bad as may be portrayed by the defeats.

      1. lets not day dream let alone hallucinate coaches world over are hired and fired on results alone nothing more nothing less not even a promise of future results will save the day for a coachs head what we can only agree on is that the two partners in crime in a well orchestrated move to destroy dembare thus mutasa and ken must leave pronto

        1. Siyananayo Dembare Hainangozi

          Mutasa is doing the best he can do under the circumstances. What do you want him to do when players are not being remunerated? Its Kenny Mubaiwa who is subotaging the system. How come they mismanaged Christian Epoupa? So clear its the Executive who are killing the team……

          1. what this mutasa chap need to do is very simple just quit and we move on with another coach who can withstand the rigors of the infighting and produce results whilst this management hullabaloo continues ,i remember back in the 90s mhofu as coach of dembare achieved sweet results under hostile infighting within the club and thats what we need its as simple as it can ever get.

    2. Siyananayo Dembare Hainangozi

      You are not being honest with yourself. I wonder whether you are a Dynamos Supporter or just one of the “Popporters”. Gara pasi and be quiet. Shuwa ungamuke kuma six kuseniseni kwakadaro kutaura mhepo yakadai? Your memory is very very short. It is Mutasa who almost did a smash and grab of the League title last year 2017 leaving FC Platinum to breathe a sigh of relief on the very last minute in the last game……

      Saka Lloyd Mutasa aitaseyi…..???? Asi sisi vako vakaroorwa naKenny Mubaiwa?

    Hardly “hardly high noon” for Lloyd

  3. Lodza, spare us the issue of Ntouba, how can one man make a team. You were too emotional on Denver, you should have managed him and see now, he is the one who seems to have hit the final nail on your coffin. Come up with a winning formula otherwise if you dont have any, tender your resignation and avoid embarrasment. You are a professional and should smell coffee from afar my friend.

    Mubaiwa. We are also giving you four games or else you leave. You are the one destroying the club. Enough of this mubaiwa crap. Arise DeMbare supporters. MUBAIWA MUST GO!

  5. madyiwamos muchingohukura tichingohwina bulawayo city 2-1 madyiwamos and bulawayo city inotamba muchimisfire zvamukuita izvi

  6. Keni and Marriot are mainly to blame for the mess at Dynamos.Dynamos haisi timu yambuya vako Marriot, rova pasi nhasi chaiye. Board members must rotated and club executives must be elected annually or biennually; the Highlanders model must adopted. Dynamos has been turned into a feeding trough for good-for-nothing gangsters like Marriot et al.

  7. Mubaiwa and Lodza are doing everything well. Pliz, these guys alone. Coming to Henry Mhara, so, you did not want Mukamba to celebrate when he scored against the amateur team called dynamos??? Even when you score against an amateur team, one has to celebrate.
    PLIZ YOU dynamos MUPURWAZ, LEAVE KENNY AND LODZA ALONE.

  8. All the teams in PSL must collect 3 points each against MUROHWAMOS b4 Kenny and Mutasa are fired.

  9. All the teams in PSL must win against dynamos b4 Kenny and Mutasa are fired.
