Highlanders Football Club has responded to the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) following the soccer body’s request to know the circumstances surrounding the suspension of two club officials.
Bosso suspended vice chairman Morden Ngwenya and secretary Israel Moyo after they refused to renew chief executive Nhlanhla Dube’s contract, which had expired on April 30.
ZIFA had demanded to know if the club followed due process in the decision. Here is Highlanders’ response:
We refer to your letter dated 7 May 2018 and further to the telephone discussion between the writer and the ZIFA president on the same date.
We write to advise that the issue of our suspended executive committee members is pending before our disciplinary tribunal in terms of our constitution.
It is, therefore, inappropriate for us to prematurely discuss it at this stage.
Accordingly, I encourage you to be patient and allow due process to take its course, whose outcome shall be publicised.
Indeed, you may want to know that everything concerning the suspended members is being dealt with strictly according to our internal regulations, in particular, the constitution, a copy of which is in your possession.
And, while we appreciate your concerns about the stability of our club, we assure you that there is no need to worry.
