Zimbabwe’s Minister of Environment, Tourism and Hospitality Industry, Nqobizitha Mangaliso Ndlovu is now a card-carrying member of Highlanders Football Club.
The development was announced by the newly elected club committee member Mgcini Mafu, who visited Plumtree on Saturday to thank members for voting him into office. Mafu said:
We are privileged to have such a high ranking government official joining our club. We had fruitful discussions with him. He said he will do everything in his power to assist the club in its programmes and this might even open avenues for corporates to come in and sponsor into yabantu.
I had promised the Plumtree guys that I will come back to thank them if they vote me into office and we were lucky to bump into the honourable Minister. He said he will also take to his colleague to the Minister of Finance and Economic Development Mthuli Ncube to join Highlanders as well. As I said in my campaign manifesto, I want to have as many people as possible becoming card carrying Highlanders members.
Mafu was elected together with Morgan ‘Gazza’ Dube as club secretary and Johnfat Sibanda as chairman.
