Richard Zimunya Tenax coach Shadreck Mugurasave has walked out on the club following the imposition of Blessing Madombi as assistant coach, Newsday Sport has been told.
Mugurasave’s resignation came as a shock for the team sitting in the relegation waters.
They have 20 points, one more than basement side Whawha and are shy of the safe zone.
According to sources the imposition of Madombi on the technical setup by the team executive did not go down well with Mugurasave.
Madombi, a Prisons and Correctional Service officer, was once part of the Tenax technical executive and was fired for insubordination sometime back in May.
Sources said on Wednesday, some members the executive, in the absence of Mugurasave, attended the team’s training session and introduced Madombi to the players.
In an interview with Newsday Sport yesterday Mugurasave confirmed his resignation.
“Administrative issues have pushed me to resign and it is not about the team performance, I was trying my best with the little resources that were available,” he said. If things are not changing for the better then, it’s better to take a rest and give others a chance to drive the wagon. I had a very good relationship with the club executive members, unfortunately if things are not going the way you want, its better to quit,” he said.

It was also claimed yesterday that technical manager Lloyd Chinawa had also tendered his resignation following Mugurasave’s departure.
The situation at Tenax is further compounded by alleged rift between players who are correctional officers and those who are non-officers.
