DeMbare are 2013 league champions

HARARE – Dynamos have won their 20th Zimbabwe Premiership title after piping Highlanders and Harare City on goal difference to the 2013 championship on Sunday.

Dynamos beat Black Mambas 2-0 at Rufaro Stadium courtesy of Simba Sithole’s first half brace to ensure that Calisto Pasuwa’s men won their third league title on the trot.

After starting the day on top of the log, City blew a golden chance to win their maiden Premiership title after a 2-2 draw with CAPS United at the National Sports Stadium.

In Bulawayo, Highlanders defeated Shabanie Mine 3-1 at Barbourfields Stadium but it was not enough to topple Dynamos.

All three teams Dynamos, Highlanders and City finished the season on 54 points but it was the Glamour Boys, who landed the title courtesy of their better goal difference.

At the other end of the log, Mambas become the fourth and final team to be relegated from the Premiership after their defeat to Dynamos.

The police outfit join Motor Action, Monomotapa and Tripple B, who were already relegated before the final weekend of the season.

Claudius Hokoyo Zviripayi - 25 November 2013

it is sad to have a comment like the one posted by claudius hokoyo zviripayi while before then a highlanders fan black crow sounds like a true sportsman. well done black crow. to claudius your mention of tribes makes me want to comment on some things you are not aware of and unfortunately i may end painting all the dyanamos and good friends of mine with the same brush because of you. do you know cluadius that before 1963 politics and soccer never exepirenced any tribalisim until dynamos and zanu pf came in. zapu was a national party and zanu turned it to a tribal party and things have continued to be like that until this day and the party has continued to rule on that tribalism than on merit. highlanders used to be a regional team like harare city is a city team until dynamos came and was viewed as team for the shonas. of course the tribalism came more when at one time a team in bulawayo suddenly called itself mashonaland united. right in the middle of bulawayo. so claudius please dont bring in this tribalism crap in here and spoil a team like dynamos. if you are a tribalist please take it out of dynamos. if you dont like the mandebeles and you have had a fight with them do it somewhere else. by the way i am not saying highlanders does not have tribal supporters, but all i am saying is that tribalism came in when these 2 came into existance and am glad dymanos especailly the coach is trying hard to get rid of it but people like you will be an embarrassment.

I would like to congrats Dembare for winning the Championship for the third successive seasons.Allow me ladies and Gentlemen to condone all those people with tribalism remarks like Claudius to separate sport and politics.After all soccer is a game where there is a loser and winner and after all Highlanders are our brothers,you won`t even surprised to see these players play for either Dynamos or Highlanders it shows that soccer is a game no more than that.We need progressive people here not people with tribal tendencies on our platform.Thank you

edward & mukanya my comment is bases on what claudius posted. its a shame. as said well done to dynamos.

sammy - 25 November 2013

I would like to congrats Dembare for winning the Championship for the third successive seasons. Tribalism remarks that were made by Claudius are not good for our most beautiful game. After all soccer is a game where there is a loser and winner and after all Highlanders, FC Platinum, How Mine, Byo Chiefs, Hippo Valley, ZPC Kariba, Tripple B are our brothers, you won`t even surprised to see these players play for either Dynamos or Highlanders. e.g Munyaradzi Dhiya, Lovemore "Magents" Ncube, Makwinji Soma Phiri, Stewart Murisa, etc. it shows that soccer is a game no more than that. We need progressive people here not people with tribal tendencies on our platform. The Captain of the day & the 2013 Soccer Star has even thanked the Dynamos Bulawayo Chapter, meaning to say football should be a tool and an example that we should shun tribalism. What do we get from that? After all we are no different from one another. Remember yesterday, we had our friends (three white gentlemen) who were running up and down throughout the match in support of their team Dynamos. Sport knows no tribalism. Please lets shun this inhuman mentality. Dembare Bhoraaaa. We love you guys. You are doing us a good job. Madzibaba Pasuwa, zvinonzi nyuchi dzinoruma ndidzo dzineuchi, likewise, all those difficulties that you were facing this season were part of your job. We support you. To Highlanders, Harare City and Caps United, i say thank you for bringing competition to the game of football. Caps United have shown us the True Sportsmanship and Fair Play Spirit. Thank you guys. Remember that players are the ones who play the game in the field of play and not supporters. So Caps United players have shown maturity and distanced themselves from the rivalry between the supporters of the two clubs.Thank you That simply Thank you

Congrats the boys in blue. Shame to tribalists like Hokoyo, who are busy unnecessarily destroying our nation. Fans don't spoil our sport.

ck - 25 November 2013

By merely looking at the foul language Hokoyo used,you can tell what type of a person he is and how he was brought up.A noboby and a directionless character.Shame on you .

chimuti - 25 November 2013

Are you the real hokoyo cladius zviripayi we used to watch during your heydays mesmerising opponents at De Mbare or you are just mascarading as one. pliz if u are the real cladius dont bring in tribalism in soccer. both de mbarre and higlanders are dignified teams where at one time or another shona or ndebele players have played for them. players have even crossed floors to play for these giants of zimbabwean soccer, rememebr stuart murisa, lenny gwata, makwinji soma phiri, diya to mention but a few. highlanders have been on the receiving end from dembare in recent years but this does not mean its a bad team. during the 1990s and early 2000 dembare was a whipping boy of bosso so this is just see saw affair. congrats madembare, nhasi ndezveduwo, ita makorokoto kwetiri vedu vadadisa wazvinzvaka, wazvinzvakaiwewe.
