28 Apri 2017, MASVINGO – Masvingo City Football Club, which used to be the city's sole representative in the division one soccer league before the coming in of Mucheke Pirates FC, has decided to dissolve its executive and transfer all responsibilities to a steering committee.
The move to dissolve the whole board was taken after the team chairperson relocated to Harare and after many members of the club left the team to join the rivals, Mucheke Pirates.
Since the team belongs to the community, it was resolved to give shares to those who used to help the team in different ways.
Martin Mureri, Richard Madyavanhu, Kudakwashe Chitsvare, Michael Nyevera, Cuthbert Mutandwa and Isaac Chapura make-up the steering committee that will run the affairs of the team until a new executive is elected.
Speaking to TellZim News, Nyevera said he expected everybody to work hard and produce better results than ever before.
"I think it's a noble idea considering that we now have shareholders who will be operating above the executive unlike yesteryear where the executive was not monitoring. I think that will force the executive to work extra hard and with unity of purpose to produce good results which will make the board and community happy," said Nyevera.
He also said preparations for the upcoming season will commence soon as some logistics are yet to be put in place by the steering committee.
Nyevera also said despite facing challenges, the team had managed to retain all its senior players and he encouraged new players to join.sport
