Rift rocks Zifa board<br> <br>3/15/2003 9:15:42 AM (GMT +2)<br>By Nzwanayi Nyandoro <p>A RIFT has developed within the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) board after some members recently proposed passing a resolution to impose life bans on people who have taken the football association to court. According to sources within the board, the issue has divided members. The Zifa board is scheduled to meet today where among other things, they are expected to discuss this issue again. <p>Deposed Zifa chairman Leo Mugabe, officials of Highlanders, Dynamos and Zimbabwe Saints, have taken the association to court in the past and would face the life ban from football administration if the resolution was passed. Fifa and Confederation of African Football rules prohibit football matters from being taken to courts of law. <p>One of the board members said those who were against the proposal only wanted to protect Mugabe because he is the nephew of President Mugabe. ???.if zifa officials cant run the league and don?t know the rules and are bias, what are clubs supposed to do?????<p>*****************************<br>Dynamos acquire new head coach<br>Petros Kausiyo 13/3<br>Harare <p>BIG-SPENDING Premiership soccer giants Dynamos - still eager to mount a strong challenge for the championship this year - have turned to the north of the country's borders and appointed Zambian Keegan Mumba as their new head coach. Mumba replaces Elvis "Chuchu" Chiweshe, who lasted just two Premiership games - the 0-2 defeat to rivals CAPS United and last Sunday's 1-1 draw against Amazulu<br>

Sports Commission saying little on Dynamos elections <br>3/14/2003 3:50:55 AM (GMT +2)<br> <br>By Nzwanayi Nyandoro THE Sports Commission is not giving away much on the progress it is making on the scheduled elections at Dynamos Football Club. Elias Musangeya, the acting Sports Commission director general, said the elections scheduled for 22 March would go ahead but refused to comment on the verification of the Dynamos members who will vote in the elections. <p>The Sports Commission is following a directive from the High Court that they conduct elections for the club?s executive in terms of the 1994 constitution. Musangeya said: ?The elections are going ahead. But I don?t want to say anything more on that.? But the Dynamos founder members want the Commission to stop holding the elections arguing that holding them would be unconstitutional. The club is currently being run by an interim executive headed by Ignatius Pamire. <p>The Sports Commission was tasked by the Minister of Education, Sports and Culture, Aeneas Chigwedere, to intervene in the Dynamos saga and find a solution leading to elections. Dynamos has been embroiled in in-house fighting with Zifa subsequently intervening. But the Sports Commission has been given the mandate by the courts to conduct elections. <p>Meanwhile, Elvis Chiweshe yesterday attended Dynamos? training session after his demotion as Dynamos coach on Tuesday. Chiweshe did not attend the team?s training session on Wednesday, fuelling speculations he might have opted out of the team. <p>Chiweshe was relegated to the position of assistant coach after the club appointed former Zambian international Keagan Mumba their new coach, on a two-year perfomance-related contract. <p>?????????.for one to stay ahead of the game, they must know what their rivals are up to.<br>

Saints to wait a little longer <br>Sports Reporter 18/3<p>ZIMBABWE Saints will have to wait a bit longer before they know their status in Zimbabwean football after the Premier Soccer League referred their case to legal consultants for clarification over the weekend. <p>The PSL management committee met in Harare on Sunday and felt there were points, particularly in their constitution which needed to be clarified first. <p>PSL chairman Rafiq Khan confirmed the latest twist yesterday. <p>"There are one or two issues that need to be clarified first before a decision could be made. We have to seek legal advice on that before we can issue a statement," Khan said. <p>Chances are high that the league will not accept Saints? reinstatement into the league as they argue that 14 teams were agreed on at the ZIFA Council last year. <p>Saints alongside Railstars, Chrome Stars, Masvingo United and Buymore were relegated at the end of last season, but Saints argue that their case was worsened by the intervention of ZIFA. <p>ZIFA, responding to distress calls from the clubs? supporters, endorsed the suspension of the Lazarus Magwaroexecutive and replaced it with an interim committee led by Cliff Manungo??????????????????<p>i cant believe the league is even contemplating reinstating Saints. Those f*ckers were relegated fair and square coz they couldn?t compete on the field. If saints is reinstated, then all the other teams that were relegated and those that lost in the play-offs as well as Arcadia united should all be reinstated into the psl. This is a bad precedence to set. And once set, teams like dynamos, highlanders and caps will never be relegated. Fifa should intervene!!!!!<br>

DeMbare polls called off 20/3<br>Sports Editor Robson Sharuko <p><br>ELECTIONS to choose the first substantive executive committee at Dynamos in four years have been postponed indefinitely pending the outcome of an application to the Supreme Court by founder members opposed to the polls. <p>The elections were scheduled to be held in the capital on Saturday. <p>In the morning yesterday, the Sports Commission flighted an advertisement advising the club?s stakeholders that elections would start at 10am at the Marble Hall at the National Sports Stadium. <p>But late yesterday afternoon the Sports Commission was singing a different tune. <p>Acting Sports Commission director general Elias Musangeya said the elections had been called off pending the determination of the Supreme Court hearing. <p>That means the Harare giants will remain under the control of the interim leadership headed by Ignatius Pamire until the Supreme Court determines otherwise. It is the third time now in the past 15 months that the Dynamos elections have been postponed because of opposition from the founder members. <p>The Harare giants have been without a substantive executive since 1999<br>

PSL WEEK 3 ROUND-UP<p>BAGHDAD has become an unlikely venue of respite for Dynamos and Sunday's 1-0 win over Lancashire Steel ended a woeful run of almost seven months without a Premiership win. <p>Last season the then Dynamos coach Moses "Bambo" Chunga travelled to Baghdad needing a victory to stay at the helm following a string of poor results and won 4-0 ? Dembare's biggest win at Lancashire Steel's home. <p>Chunga then stayed at the club until the end of the season before moving to Zvishavane to join Shabanie Mine. <p>On Sunday Lancashire Steel were not under any pressure to win and simply wanted victory, Dynamos needed it and there was always going to be a difference between the two team's approach to the encounter. <p>Newly-appointed Zambian coach Keegan Mumba was the coach under pressure, Dynamos the side under scrutiny in Kwekwe and a 64th minute goal from former Motor Action striker Edmore Mufema was enough to make them pass a first test of character. <p>Importantly it was the first time Dynamos collected three points since the 6-2 destruction of Buymore at Rufaro on August 24 last year and the former champions moved above Blue Swallows into 10th place with four points from three matches. <p>A run of five defeats and four draws finally came to an end. <p>Champions Highlanders, in their first match since the departure of former coach Eddie May, moved into familiar territory after overcoming a two-goal deficit to beat newcomers Kambuzuma 3-2 at Barbourfields on Sunday. <p>The win, coupled with rivals Amazulu's 2-2 draw with newcomers Sundowns, lifted Highlanders to the top of the Premiership standings with a 100 percent record from three matches. <p>CAPS United are the only other team in the 14-team Premiership with a 100 percent record following their narrow 2-1 win over hapless Wankie at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday. <p>The 1996 champions made hard work of it and had to secure a win through second-half substitute Wonder Ngoko, who ghosted from the blind side to scramble the ball into an unguarded goal. <p>They dominated the rest of the half but, typically, poured all their attacks through the crowded centre of the field targeting strikers Walter Tshuma and Brian Badza when they would surely have had more joy testing the mobility of the largely untried Wankie wingbacks. <p>Black Rhinos went into the weekend with two wins out of two and were expected to make it three in a row against a Motor Action side stripped to the bone through the departure of so many big-name players in the off-season. <p>But as it turned out, Motor Action took advantage of the underdog tag to crush the army side 4-0, the biggest win of the season so far, and the biggest shock of the campaign at this stage. <p>Rhinos inevitably slumped to sixth place, with Sporting Lions moving into fifth following a comfortable 2-0 win over newcomers Blue Swallows at Gwanzura in the only game played on Saturday. <p>A double by second-half substitute Clemence Mukudu gave Sporting Lions their second consecutive win after a disastrous start to the season which had seen them lose 0-3 against Amazulu at Luveve. <p>Newly-appointed technical director Clemens Westerhof was not on the Sporting Lions bench but opted to watch the entire game from the terraces given that he had only been to the team's training three times since his appointment. <p>To say that Blue Swallows played badly would be to do an injustice to Sporting Lions but the airmen should start working on taking the lead and preserving it instead of raising their game only after falling behind. <p>Chunga continued with his good run at Shabanie Mine and the 2-1 win over Chapungu was a second consecutive over airmen after a 4-1 victory over Blue Swallows the previous game. <p>Shabanie are now in fourth place with seven points from four matches and they will now fancy their chances when they travel to the capital to face Sporting Lions in their next match at the start of April. <br>

Africa name World Cup start date<p><br>JOHANNESBURG, March 26 (Reuters) - Africa's challenge for the 2006 World Cup finals will start in October with the preliminary round of qualifiers, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) said in Cairo on Wednesday. The draw will be made in Zurich in July and the 52 African countries have until June 15 to enter the competition. As previously decided, the qualifiers for the African Nations Cup finals in Egypt in 2006 will also serve as qualifiers for the World Cup, to be held in Germany later the same year.<p> CAF said the five African countries that went to last year's World Cup finals - Cameroon, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa and Tunisia - would be exempt from the preliminary round. Others, depending on the list of entrants, might also be exempt from the first stage but this would be decided on the highest placings in the last FIFA world rankings before the draw in July. The preliminary round matches will be played over two legs in October and November. <p>The winners will then join the exempt teams in five groups of six teams for the final round of qualifying matches. The five group winners will qualify for the 2006 World Cup finals while the top three in each group go to the Nations Cup tournament in Egypt. <p>*************************************<p>Saints, Sundowns axed from Division One <br>3/26/2003 9:53:53 AM (GMT +2)<br> <br>Sports Reporter THE Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) Southern Region Soccer League has removed Zimbabwe Saints and Sundowns from its programme for the 2003 season.
