THE Dynamos Board of Trustees has moved another step in a bid to save the Harare side from plunging into further mayhem with a major re-structuring of the club’s executive announced yesterday.
George Shaya and Moses Chunga
, two former legendary players of Dynamos, have sensationally bounced back among other appointments at the troubled club to replace the Morrison Sifelani leadership, fired by the board this week for alleged maladministration.
Shaya, considered to be the country’s greatest footballer of all time, replaces Sifelani as chairman. It is Shaya’s second spell at the club after a period in office as Dynamos chairman in the 1998 and 1999 seasons when the popular side rode on a wave of success, reaching the final of the Africa Champions League in 1998.
While Shaya is said to have already accepted the appointment, Chunga, who was named as head coach for a second spell in the new set-up, could only return if Dynamos match the incentives that the former Warriors assistant coach is getting from Division One outfit Gunners, where he is head coach.
Also re-uniting with the club are former executive members Leslie Gwindi and Lloyd Hove, who were given the posts of secretary and marketing committee member respectively. Former player Lincoln Mutasa is the other member of the marketing committee.
The new treasurer is George Mazambani, while Austin Chipfiko and Stanley Kudenga are the two executive members. Former PSL boss, Wellington Nyatanga, joins as adviser of the executive.
Yesterday Owen Cha-ndamale, the vice chairman of the axed executive, said his executive would appeal their dismissal, saying the board of trustees had no mandate to make appointments. A board of directors should make such decisions, he said.
Chandamale said they had written to the board of trustees chairman, Richard Chiminya, asking him to convene another meeting as all the board of trustees members did not attend the meeting on Wednesday evening when the executive
was fired. — Staff Writer.
