DeMbare indaba on today

HARARE - A group comprising Dynamos’ founding members calling themselves Surviving Founder Members, Former Players and Supporters (SFMFPS), will hold their stakeholders meeting today as scheduled at Stodart Hall in Mbare.

The meeting is expected to be attended by all Dynamos supporters from across the country and the group’s secretary-general Ernest Kamba yesterday said all is now set for the meeting that could pave way for a new era at the country’s biggest club.

“The meeting is on tomorrow (today) and we have been cleared by the police so we are inviting the club’s fans and former players to come in their numbers,” Kamba told the Daily News yesterday.

“Everything is now in place for the meeting to go ahead. We want to meet with the supporters and educate them on the structure of Dynamos. There are some supporters who do not understand the structure of their favourite team.

“So we will use this opportunity to educate them at the same time laying out our vision on how we want the club to operate. Dynamos is one of the biggest clubs in Africa yet the most poorly-run. Imagine a team like Dynamos does not even own offices.

“There is need for a defined model at the team so that we can bring back those happy days at our beloved team.”

Kamba, who is also a Dynamos founding member and former coach, has reignited his battle to control the popular Harare club.

He is querying the legitimacy of the current board led by Bernard Marriot and is confident with the buy-in of their fans they will be able to restore the glory days back at the Glamour Boys if they succeed.

The Glamour Boys are currently experiencing one of their worst seasons and look set to finish the season empty-handed.

Dynamos currently sit on fifth place on the log table with 38 points with five games to go.

The record Zimbabwe champions started the season under Portuguese coach Paulo Jorge Silva, who lasted only five league games before he was sacked and replaced by his assistant Lloyd Mutasa.

After a good start under Mutasa, DeMbare lost their way in recent months which prompted president Kenni Mubaiwa to sack assistant coach Murape Murape.

Mutasa was to follow shortly but Marriot’s board rubbished the executive’s decision and Murape was reinstated.

Mubaiwa threatened to resign in protest after the board’s decision but was convinced to stay on.
