Highlanders bus delayed by strike


THE Highlanders bus donated by Nyaradzo Funeral Group which was due in the country on the weekend of February 8-9 is now expected in Harare this weekend.


Webster Chikengezha, the managing director of Nyaradzo Funeral Assurance, a division of Nyaradzo Group yesterday said the bus should have been in the country by now, but there was a delay due to an industrial strike in South Africa.

“We are expecting the Highlanders bus over the weekend in Harare. We will need about two to three weeks to complete the registration process,” he said.

“We will have two handover functions one in Bulawayo and the other in Harare for Dynamos.

“There has been a delay because there has been an industrial action in the South African motor industry.”

Dynamos used the donated bus when they travelled to Botswana to fulfil the preliminary round, second leg Caf Champions League tie against Mochudi Centre Chiefs last week.

“Dynamos requested to use the bus when they were going to Botswana. They returned it when they came back because we still need to brand it,” said Chikengezha, who is also the secretary-general of Dynamos.

Caps United, Buffaloes, Black Rhinos and Black Mambas have already received their buses from Nyaradzo.
