28 April 2017, MUTARE - Former Dynamos player Masimba Dinyero has been relieved off his duties as Mutare City Rovers coach before the start of Division One season.
Dinyero who joined Rovers from Hartley Academy in January, was fired at a club meeting held last week.
"Yes it is true that we are no longer with Masimba Dinyero. He was relieved off his duties after the new club executive felt that he was not up to the task. The executive has been monitoring the team's performance during friendly matches that we have been playing," said club administrator Clayton Masekesa.
Sources within the club, however, told TellZim News that Dinyero was sacked after he failed to work well with his deputy, Kenny 'Bokande' Kachara.
"The issue here is that Dinyero and Bokande are not in good books. Bokande is well supported by the whole executive," said the source.
Meanwhile Mutare City Rovers has announced the names of the new executive: Kuda Chisango is now the new chairman, Isdore Bingura was elected committee member and Tanda Rwambiwa is now the new vice chairman. Rufaro Haparari is the new welfare manager while Abigail Musunzuru is the auditor.
Other committee members include Brian Mukunga, Soul Tomu, Hatinzwani Kubuya, Benjamin Chindima and Samson Kabwe. Prudence Mhlanga is the team doctor while Tonde Kanengoni is the legal officer. Masekesa, who was the club's spokesman, is now the club's administrator.
In the technical department, Kenny Kachara has been elevated to acting head coach while Lyndon Kanyemba remains the team manager.sport
