ZPC Kariba players threaten boycott

HARARE - ZPC Kariba's fine start to the Castle Premiership season is under severe threat after it was reportedly players are disgruntled over non-payment of dues and are mulling boycotting their weekend’s match against Buffaloes.

Sources within the club reveal to Daily News that most of the players are owed part of their signing on fees and they have resorted to boycott weekend’s match, a move aimed at forcing the executive to address their plight.

Players accuse the club’s management of reneging on its promise of giving the players their dues, noting that nothing was done despite receiving a month’s salary since the season started. Sources said the club’s management has broken several promises to the players.

“The management told us they would give us our outstanding allowances before even the season started but up to now nothing has been done. It is not fair for us to be treated like primary school kids who don’t deserve a cent.

“We are doing our part by wining matches and they should also do their bit,” said a well-placed source.

ZPC Kariba’s participation in the 2014 PSL was hanging in the balance after government reportedly barred the power company from putting money into football in the wake of the country’s deepening economic crisis.

The Kariba-based club, which was promoted into the PSL from division one at the end of last year, is financed by the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC), a parastatal responsible for supplying energy and related services in the region.

ZPC Kariba have made a bright start to their maiden premiership campaign winning two and drew once and are sitting third on the log standings.
