ZRU audit outcome expected


By Enock Muchinjo

THE eagerly awaited audit report of the Zimbabwe Rugby Union (ZRU) books will be presented to the sport’s new executive next week, with the union expected to take

disciplinary action against officials accused of financial mismanagement, IndependentSport has learnt.


The audit was not presented at the ZRU’s annual general meeting held last week despite having already been completed as the union tried to sort out in-house differences.


Re-elected ZRU president Bryn Williams said a disciplinary action committee led by Harare lawyer Gary Crossland would be put in place if the need arises to implement the recommendations of the audit.


“Things will be taking place and the new executive members will be meeting to draft a new blue print for rugby,” Williams told this paper after the AGM.

The AGM last Sunday also saw the election of Mashonaland Country Districts official John Stanger as first vice-president of the union, with Matabeleland’s Mike Micklesfield emerging as the second vice-president on the constitutionally reserved southern region ticket.


Former player Stanger replaces Losson Mutongwiza, who has stepped down from the union, while veteran Micklesfield takes over from Matabeleland Rugby Board chairman Alex Goosen.
