Sunday Chidzambwa has not been fired as ZPC Kariba coach folling the leaking of a controversirsial audio clip.
In the clip, Chidzambwa claimed he was mocked by Mazarire, in a closed-door meeting held shortly after the coach’s return from his successful adventure at the 2017 COSAFA Castle Cup tournament, where he led the Warriors to an historic fifth title in South Africa. The owners of the club, ZESA Holdings (Pvt) Ltd issued a statement on Thursday making it clear they were neither going to fire Chidzambwa before the expiry of his contract at the end of the season, nor dissolve the club’s current leadership. ZESA spokesperson Fullard Gwasira made it clear in a statement released to The Herald that:
- ZPC Kariba FC has so far registered steady performance in the 2017 Premier Soccer League season with only a handful of matches left before the curtains of the season come down.
- As such, it is not in the immediate plans of the power utility to restructure or dismiss the Sunday Chidzambwa-led technical team.
- Head coach of ZPC Kariba, Sunday Chidzambwa, has a running contract with the club until the end of the season and his employers will constructively engage him to determine the renewal, or non-renewal, of the same as we approach the 2018 soccer season.
- It is also premature for us to unveil our plans for the 2018 Premier Soccer League season as we are still to finalise fulfilling our mandate in the current season. Similarly, at this point in time, there are no immediate plans to dismiss or restructure the executive of the team as that would also adversely affect the good performance of the club and we urge them to serve the best interests of the club until the season comes to an end.
