We're professional insist DeMbare

HARARE - Dynamos insist they are a professionally-run club and there is no way club officials can siphon gate takings from their home matches.

Responding to an article published in the Daily News last Thursday, the Glamour Boys’ lawyers Farai Nyamayaro Law Chambers said there is an laid down procedure to handle their cash inflows.

“Our client advices that, the article contained information that was misleading. It denies in toto that there is any siphoning of gate takings at the club,” Farai Nyamayaro Law Chambers said.

“After receiving money from whatever source including the said gate takings, the budget committee sits to prepare a budget. Payments are then made according to the budget that would have been prepared.

“The budget committee is constituted by the following: Board Chairman, Finance Director, Club President, Club Secretary, Club treasurer, Club Advisor.

“No expenditure or payment is made outside the budget that would have been prepared by the budget committee. It is therefore virtually impossible for the Treasurer to make payments from the car boot as he will be required to account for every cent at all financial meetings.

“You may also need to know that it is not the even the Treasurer, who effects payments but the Finance officer. The Finance Officer effects payments in accordance with the approved budget.”

The Harare giants also denied there was interference from the Board of Directors in the day-to-day running of the club.

“The Club President Keni Mubaiwa is still very much in control of the and not even an inch of his wings has been clipped. At no point in time has the Board of directors interfered with his powers as the club president,” the lawyers said.

“Dynamos is being run professionally by current office bearers. The allegations in the report are as result denied in toto.

“We have also been instructed to notify you that, there is no handpicking of office bearers at dynamos. All appointments are made by the full Board of directors after wide consultations. That was the procedure followed when...(Webster) Marechera , the team treasurer and... (Richard) Chihoro the team manager were appointed.

“Our client is of the view that, this information that is misleading is being peddled by some individuals whose agenda is to cause instability within Dynamos. Dynamos has had its books audited annually and all the records are available.”
