Bosso must act decisively

HARARE - The Highlanders executive is to blame for all the drama regarding coach Kelvin Kaindu’s status and confusion around the Bosso technical department in the past week.

Kaindu reportedly tendered his resignation on Monday after much pressure from the Bosso hierarchy and fans following a string of poor results.

Even the official Highlanders website on Tuesday carried a statement from the club’s executive announcing that the Zambian had decided to walk away.

Bosso, however, made a U-turn with the chief executive officer, Ndumiso Gumede, coming out in the media saying they were yet to see Kaindu’s resignation letter.

The media never misled anyone as Gumede alleged but journalists only relayed a message that was placed on the club’s official website.

The world over, it is standard practice that journalists keep tabs on news feeds from official club websites, Twitter and Facebook.

To avoid all this confusion, Peter Dube and his executive members should have come out in the open to give the club’s true position regarding the coach’s issue.

For the better part of the week, journalists spent most of their time running from pillar to post.

When reached for comment, Dube said he was not at liberty to talk since “he was not a full time employee of the club” directing all questions to Gumede.

On the other hand, Gumede was elusive with his phone continually ringing without an answer.

At the end of the day, the media is left with the one option — to speculate because there was a lot of inertia from the Highlanders leadership.

Using sources inside the club, the media eventually established that Kaindu had tendered his resignation but the club was reluctant to accept it.

The sticking point has been the Zambian’s exit package which Bosso are not prepared to meet.

The matter has dragged on for a week now and it would have been interesting to see what would have happened if Bosso had a league match this weekend.

Kaindu barely showed up at the team’s training ground at Fairbridge Police Camp this week but we still hear Gumede saying that he’s is still the coach.

Surely, as the country’s oldest football club, Highlanders should have been decisive in dealing with the Kaindu issue.
