Highlanders elections proceed, in spite of postponement

By Lawrence Trusida

Candidates who are vying for posts in the Highlanders’ executive have continued to campaign despite the elections having been postponed.

Highlanders Football Club’s elective Annual General Meeting (AGM) was meant to be held on the 7th of February, but was postponed to a later date to be advised due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but that hasn’t stopped candidates from campaigning.

Israel Moyo and Morgen Dube are vying to be the club’s secretary for the next three years.

Ambitious Morgen ‘Gazza’ Dube who has experience in administration and also facilitated moves for former coaches Kelvin Kaindu and Dick Chama say he wants to modernise Bosso.

“I want to contribute in the harmonising of the club’s constitution in line with FIFA club licensing, the Highlanders constitution has no provision for a secretariat.

The constitution is good and has served the club for 92 years but there are improvements needed to make the club fully compliant,” said Dube.

Incumbent Israel Moyo says he is called to be in office.

“Being an SG is a calling, I have been a life member since 2003 and I have been in this office so I have experience,” he said.

According to Bosso’s constitution, elections should be held after every three years where members of the club cast votes to elect a chairperson, secretary general and committee members.

Johnfart Sibanda is challenging incumbent chairperson Kenneth Mhlophe for the top job.
