Mighty Wanderers FC Board of Trustees has faulted the executive and main supporters committees for flouting the club’s election procedures.
Trustees vice-chairperson James Chuma was reacting to a joint decision by the executive and supporters committee to have executive committee elections on March 2.
“The normal procedure is that supporters committee elections come first and they are called by the executive committee. Thereafter, the board of trustees calls for executive committee elections.
“When the issue was referred to us following their joint meeting, we noted these anomalies and we have asked them to go back to the drawing board to correct the situation,” said Chuma.
The former Wanderers chairperson also expressed the need for the supporters to enforce membership fee drive to ensure order.
“It has to be borne in mind that currently, the club has no sponsorship and its coffers are dry, hence the need to put in place income generating initiatives. One of them is to enforce payment of membership fees. In any case, we need to move with the times and take a professional approach in the management of the team,” he said.
While confirming referring the matter to the trustees, supporters committee chairperson Yona Malunga was reluctant to comment.
“Whatever the trustees vice-chairperson has said is enough because the issue was referred to them for advice. That is all I can say,” said Malunga.
Nomads chairperson George Chamangwana said the trustees are yet to brief them on the matter.
“What the trustees are saying makes a lot of sense, but then they have not informed us about their position,” said Chamangwana.
