Bosso bus expected by weekend


DYNAMOS took delivery of their team bus from Nyaradzo Funeral Group yesterday and Highlanders are expecting theirs over the weekend after the necessary paperwork, a senior official from the funeral assurance company has said.


Webster Chikengezha — managing director of Nyaradzo Funeral Assurance, a division of Nyaradzo Group — yesterday said Dynamos’ bus was already in the country and the Highlanders bus is expected by this weekend.

“The first bus belonging to Dynamos has arrived and the guys have gone to collect the second bus belonging to Highlanders from Iveco in South Africa. As far as I understand the bus should be arriving by weekend. We have since written to Highlanders. The bus will then have to be registered by us after we get information from Highlanders. The logistics of Highlanders receiving the bus will be done after the registration as it has to be fully licensed before they get it,” Chikengezha said.

Highlanders chairman Peter Dube yesterday confirmed that the club was aware that the bus was on its way, but the privilege of making a statement regarding the vehicle lay with Nyaradzo.

“We know about the bus and when it will be coming, but that announcement can only be made by Nyaradzo,” Dube said.

Caps United, Buffaloes, Black Rhinos and Black Mambas which was relegated from the PSL last year, have already received their buses from Nyaradzo.

It was the country’s two biggest clubs Dynamos and Highlanders who were yet to receive their buses.

Under Nyaradzo’s Score Pack package, clubs stand to benefit 10% of the monthly premiums paid by their supporters who are policy-holders with Nyaradzo.

Highlanders are also in the process of procuring a 26-seater bus with $20 000 already having been advanced to Tshinga Dube.

Bosso chairman told the Bosso annual general meeting recently that the club benefactor had offered to pay back the money, but had been tied up due to other commitments.

Highlanders has another bus which they use to ferry players.
