Highlanders Football Club’s pending 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM) will finally be held on 21 March while the Executive Members elections will be conducted on 28 March.
This was said by the club’s president Ndumiso Gumede and Board Chairman Luke Mnkandla in a joint statement this Saturday.
According to the statement, both the AGM and elections will start at 1000hrs in the morning and end by 1200hrs midday.
Gumede and Mnkandla sought to assure members and stakeholders that both the AGM and elections will be held in adherence to strict COVID-19 protocols.
The AGM should have been conducted on the 31st of January before electing three Executive members a week later.
However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic rules and regulations, the negative responses received from the police and relevant sporting authorities and broad consultation on the matter, the board resolved to postpone the events.
The three vacant posts are that of the Executive Chairman, which will see the incumbent Kenneth Mhlophe contesting with Johnfart Sibanda, the Secretary-General and the Committee Member’s posts.
Incumbent Israel Moyo will be challenged by Victoria Falls-based Morgan Dube for the Secretary-General post, while the battle for the Committee Member’s post will be between Bheka Sibanda and Mgcini Mafu.
Wisdom Mabhena the outgoing Committee Member will not be contesting as he has already served two terms.
