THE ownership wrangle at Dynamos Football Club took a new twist this week with the lawyer representing both Dynamos (Pvt) Ltd and the founder members saying the Supreme Court last month made the two groups both lawful owners of the team.
ever, Richard Chiminya, the chairman of the founder members who constitute the Board of Trustees at the helm of the club, has dampened hopes of a reunification by refusing to discuss the judgement.
Selby Hwacha, who represented Dynamos stakeholders in their bid to gain full control of the club, said the two factions were both his clients and had brought the case before the courts together. He added that the current ownership question was not a constitutional issue but an internal politics matter.
“There is no constitutional issue which arises,” Hwacha told IndependentSport this week. “They are all members of the same legal family and they should come together.”
Dynamos (Pvt) Ltd, led by chairman and chief executive Morrison Sifelani, were the first applicant in the court application, according to the judgement by Justice Luke Malaba on March 23 which ruled that the company and second applicant Dynamos Football Club were the lawful owners of the club.
However, Hwacha said the board of trustees was not listed as an applicant as they are not a legal entity, but they were fully covered in the application and subsequent judgement under Dynamos Football Club.
“They are all Dynamos and they won together,” Hwacha said. “They should find a way to accommodate each other. They were all my clients which is why I’ve not been involved in the subsequent disagreement after the judgement. Whatever is now happening I am not involved because it’s an inhouse thing.”
