Zipa unveils election roadmap

HARARE - The Zimbabwe Pool Association (Zipa) has set a roadmap that will see a substantive executive committee voted into office by the end of the year.

With the sport growing popular across the country, the ministry of Sports together and the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) had tasked the interim Zipa executive committee led by chairperson Munyaradzi Mudimu until June 25 to regularise their structures.

Zipa, however, missed the deadline but this time around they are confident they will conclude the process by December to become a fully fledged National Sports Association dully registered with the SRC.

The association will first start by adopting all the provincial constitutions, a process which must be complete by October 7.

Once their constitutions have been approved, all provincial executives are required to hold their elections by October 30 in order to choose substantive members.

After the provincial elections, Zipa will then hold a special general meeting on November 12 when they discuss the way forward.

Two days after the indaba, a notice of the national executive committee elections will be given to all provinces, who will be required to nominate and vet candidates to vie for posts.

Success candidates will then battle it out for positions in the Zipa executive committee during another special general meeting to be held on December 17.

The new Zipa top brass will then be inducted into office by the SRC at the start of next year.

“...the above time frames will changed and also other processes that were included on the initial roadmap shall be adhered to,” Zipa said in a statement.

“All provincial structures with challenges in enforcing this roadmap are required to notify Zipa interim secretary general or their provincial SRC officer in writing of the challenges they will be facing although it will not lead to alterations of the time frames.”
