Bosso launch club magazine

BULAWAYO - Bulawayo giants Highlanders on Sunday officially unveiled their official club magazine which is set to be a source of authentic and reliable information for its multitude of fans across the globe.

The magazine known as the Bosso Bulletin was officially launched by the minister of Sports Makhosini Hlongwane at the team’s club house.

Hlongwane was full of praise for the initiative which he described as noble and befitting the oldest team in the country.

He however, advised the club executive to capitalise on Bosso’s big brand and build its own empire by engaging in commercial business in line with soccer, like selling team branded jerseys and other soccer accessories.

In his remarks, Highlanders board member, Luke Mnkandla said the launch of the magazine was special as it coincided with the club’s 90th birthday.

“It’s not the first time that such a magazine has been done but this is a special one in that it marks the start of our celebrations of 90 years that is next year,” Mnkandla said.

The publication which used to be administered by former Bosso committee member Siphatho Ncube has been off the streets for more than a decade now.

“We hope that this publication will help us open up communication lines between the executive and supporters as we strive to inform and provide our general membership an in-depth book into our activities and the goings on in our beloved club,” he said.

He added: “As a big institution, we have a lot going but not much of it has reached out to our stakeholders, particularly the fans as we did not have adequate space in which we can articulate our activities and developments as they unravel in the club.”

The board member further said the bulletin will be accessible on E-book form as well as maintaining a heavy presence on Facebook and Twitter “so as to ensure that the club’s fans out there are not starved with information.”

“The bulletin will be a reservoir of information and a detailed club history, the future and feature various former stars, will engage fans through a letters to the editor page where a fan of the month is also announced,” he said.
