Themba Sibanda new ZJGA boss

HARARE - Former Zimbabwe Rugby Union (ZRU) president Themba Sibanda will lead a new Zimbabwe Junior Golf Association (ZJGA) executive after being elected president at a special general meeting at Chapman Golf Club on Monday.

Sibanda, ZRU boss between 2009 and 2012, takes over from Brian Maphosa who has served his two terms.

“We are pleased to announce the new team at ZJGA. The new executive was elected at a Special General Meeting held on Monday at Chapman Golf Club,” ZJGA said in a statement yesterday.

“The new executive is: president — Sithembelenkosini (Themba) Sibanda, first vice president Emma Fundira and second vice president Tawanda Nyamukondiwa, treasurer Ilonka Bekker, secretary Nesbet Chirewa.

“Full committee including provinces will be communicated in due course. We wish the new executive all the best in their task of keeping the Zim junior team’s flag flying high.”

Maphosa joined the ZJGA as committee member in 2010, later assuming the vice president role and then being elevated to the presidency in 2013.

“I wish to inform you that I will not be standing in for re-election as President of Zimbabwe Junior Golf Association at the elections to be held on Monday, July 13, 2015,” Maphosa said in a statement announcing his decision not to contest for presidency.

“Having served two terms as president of the association I feel I have made my small contribution to the development of junior golf in the country and it is time to pursue other interests.

“I am very satisfied with the growth of our junior golfers but its work in progress that the new team has to continue with.

“We have got some of the finest young golfers that we should be proud of and they will make a mark in the world of golf in years to come.
