Harrison gets work permit

HARARE - CAPS United says new coach Mark Harrison is expected to arrive in the country anytime soon after he received his work permit from the Zimbabwe Department of Immigration on Wednesday.

Makepekepe Chief Executive Officer Joe Makuvire told reporters on the sidelines of the launch of the Sino-Zimbabwe Cement Friendly Match that the Britton papers were now in order.

“The problem with the coach was round his permission to work in the country. Before we unveiled the coach we made an application with the Department of Immigration for his work permit,” said Makuvire.

“It was on yesterday that we got the permission that he can start to work in Zimbabwe. The long and short of it is that it was an issue relating to his work permit.

“He is definitely coming to Zimbabwe. Ever since we received the confirmation from the department of Immigration that he can assume his duties we have been working tirelessly to ensure he comes to Zimbabwe as soon as possible.”

Since his unveiling last month, the former Golden Arrows, Black Leopards and Mpumalanga lack Aces coach has been in South Africa while awaiting for his papers.

The Makepekepe boss also cleared the air regarding former Bosso interim coach Mark Mathe, who has been seen at the club’s Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Sports Club training ground since the start of the wee.

Mathe was also present at yesterday’s function which sent the rumour mill into overdrive.

“There is a vacancy at CAPS for another assistant coach. Our technical department is thin and Mark Mathe is unemployed currently, he’s one of the candidates for that spot.

“We need to strengthen our technical department but as of now the duty of interview the assistant coach lies with the football manager (Harrison).”

According to Makuvire, there are two more candidates vying for the same post with Mathe including former Kiglon coach Partridge Muskwe and an unnamed coach.
