THE leadership wrangle at Dynamos has taken a new twist after it emerged yesterday that ousted chairman Morrison Sifelani had embarked on a mission to sell the troubled club to a sole owner. <
Sources privy to the on-goings at Dynamos claimed that Sifelani was clandestinely trying to settle the ownership wrangle and position himself for full control of the club before selling it.
However Sifelani, whose executive was booted out by the Dynamos board of trustees on July 27, yesterday denied any sinister move, saying he was only interested in seeing normalcy return to the club.
This week Sifelani, in his capacity as chief executive of Dynamos Football Club (Pvt) Ltd, announced the appointment of a rebel executive led by Harare businessman Farai Matsika.
Documents in the possession of IndependentSport reveal that Dynamos FC (Pvt) Ltd directors have already issued shares to over 50 former Dynamos players and administrators. The shareholders would then combine their shares and sell them to a sole owner to assume control of the Harare club, the sources claim.
Personalities offered the shares include former Dynamos coach Sunday Chidzambwa, chairman of the current executive George Shaya and board of trustees chairman Richard Chiminya. However, some of the personalities offered the contracts told this paper that they were not aware that they had been offered shares.
The Dynamos board of trustees pronounced the latest move illegal, and dismissed the company directors as illegitimate. According to the Dynamos constitution, members of the board of trustees automatically become the club’s company directors.
The documents show that the company has an issued and authorised share capital of $100 000. The last date of the company’s directors CR 14 is August 17 this year.
Sifelani yesterday remained adamant that the newly announced executive was now in charge of Dynamos.
“There is only one lawful executive at Dynamos, the one appointed under the Companies Act, and that is the one whose chairman is Farai Matsika and was appointed by Dynamos Football Club (Pvt) Ltd,” Sifelani said.
Meanwhile, premiership defending champions Caps United are out to turn the tables on rivals Highlanders when they meet the Bulawayo side in the semi-finals of the OK Woza Bhora Cup at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday.
Caps have played second fiddle to Highlanders in the past two years despite winning the league title last season. The Harare side are again leading the race for title this season.
Caps take to the field with a new striking combination after hitman Brian Badza left for Belgium in the mid-season. But Limited Chikafa seems to have settled well after the departure of Badza gifted him a starting line-up jersey.
Goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini and midfielder Honour Gombami may reappear in the Highlanders line-up after failed attempts to join clubs in South Africa and UK respectively.
The other semi-final is between Motor Action and Masvingo United at Sakubva Stadium in Mutare.
The Buddie Premier Soccer League also resumes this weekend after a three-week break.
Buddie PSL fixtures:
Tomorrow: Monomotapa vs Chapungu (Sakubva), Buymore vs Dynamos (Rufaro).
