Shereni on the run?

HARARE - Police have opened a docket on former Zimbabwe football international Harlington Shereni who is accused of “vanishing” without paying the services of people he had “contracted” to prepare for his failed testimonial ma.

Borrowdale police have opened a docket — CR 382/06/15 — after receiving reports that the former CAPS United, Air Zimbabwe, Dynamos and Warriors left sided midfielder had not paid the team he had assembled for his testimonial.

The Former Warriors player, is owing $8 450 for the venue, posters, logos and banners including other services, according to complainants.

The costs include $2 300 for the venue, printing of logos/posters $1 600 and $4 500 for administration costs.

“He has been trying to evade our law enforcement and legal system.

“Our nation is never tolerant of such fraudulent behaviour,” said Rumbidzai Mudenge, daughter to the late national hero, Samuel Mudenge, one of the complainants.

“If anyone has information as to where Shereni is to be located or any criminal issues pertaining to him, please report to the police at Borrowdale Police Station.”

His testimonial had been billed to be played in Harare two weeks ago, featuring a galaxy of African and European stars, as a tribute to the lanky midfielder who once plied his trade in France.

Normally a testimonial, at least judging by the trend in Europe’s best domestic leagues, is organised by the team for which the players served and proceeds usually go to charities of the player’s choice.

Shereni played for three years in France alongside and against some of the finest footballers in Europe.
