DYNAMOS chairman Keni Mubaiwa will be hoping for victories in two fronts this afternoon as he takes on Twine Phiri for the Premier Soccer League chairmanship while the side engage the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)’s AS Vita in a sink or swim Caf Champions League match today.
Highlanders chairman Peter Dube has already been elected vice-chairperson uncontested.
It has been a turbulent week for Mubaiwa as his club experienced a player strike over bonuses in a week in which he had to round up the campaign. However, Mubaiwa remained confident that not only would he win election, but that Dynamos would sail through to the next round with a victory over AS Vita in the DRC.
“We are expecting to win 2-0 tomorrow. We gave the club our hopes and it is now up to players to decide. They understand what is required for our football to move forward,” he said.
Mubaiwa has led Dynamos to three consecutive championships since 2011, the year he took over from Farai Munetsi.
The Dynamos chairperson, who already has the support of Harare City chairperson Lesley Gwindi, has also managed to rope in BancABC as the club’s sponsors.
His opponent, Phiri who is credited with having brought in a number of sponsors that include Mbada Diamonds Cup, NetOne, BancABC and Delta through their Castle Lager brand also expressed confidence of winning.
“It is going to be tough, but I will win the contest. Clubs are aware of what I have achieved. The idea is to consolidate what we have as well as looking for new sponsors. We also have a new tournament which we will announce soon after the elections,” he said.
