Coltart appoints new SRC board

HARARE - Sports minister David Coltart yesterday announced the new Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) board, returning lawyer Joseph James as chairperson.

Bulawayo-based James, a former lower league football player, will lead the eight-member board of the country’s supreme sport governing association.

Experienced athletics administrator Edward Siwela has also been retained from the previous board, whose term of office expired last year.

 Obediah Moyo, a former Chef de Mission of the Zimbabwe Paralympics team, also stays on from the previous administration.

 Between 1985 and 1987, Moyo was a member of the old Zimbabwe Sports and Recreation Council that gave way to the Sports Commission.

 Moyo has special interest in people with disabilities and holds a master’s degree in international relations.

Former Zimbabwe Cricket boss Dave Ellman-Brown has also kept his seat on the board.

 Former Hockey Association of Zimbabwe president Aaron Kanyangarara and ex-national team captain Aaron Kanyangarara, former Zimbabwe Ladies Golf Union president Jessie Nyakatawa, Zimbabwe Rugby Union vice-president Aisha Tsimba and former teacher Miriam Mushayi are the new members on the board.

 “I am pleased to announce, having consulted with His Excellency the President R.G. Mugabe who has given his approval, the appointment in terms of Section 5 of the Sports and Recreation Commission Act of the new SRC board,” Coltart posted on his Facebook wall yesterday.

 “Their appointment is with effect from the 6th February 2013 for a period of three years,” he added. - Blessings Mashaya
