The Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) has appointed a ZIFA Restructuring Committee as part of its strategic roadmap towards addressing the issues that have affected football management and administration in Zimbabwe.
The appointment of the Committee is in line with the provisions of Sections 21, as well as 19(b) and 20(c) of the Sports and Recreation Commission Act.
The Restructuring Committee shall be a committee independent of the SRC, with the autonomy to discharge the functions more fully set out in its terms of reference.
“The restructuring committee will not be involved in the day to day running of football in Zimbabwe which is the responsibility of the secretariat but will undertake matters of a strategic nature as outlined in their terms of reference,” said SRC board chairman Gerald Mlotshwa.
The eight-member committee consists of individuals with varying skills and competencies from sports management and administration, legal and advisory, marketing and public relations to business administration and management.
The committee will be chaired by Blessing Rugara and will also include Desmond Ali, Charles Sibanda, Joyce Kapota, Anna Mguni, Tommy Sithole, Joel Gombera, Rudo Mgandani and Brian Moyo.
Mlotshwa extended the SRC Boards’ appreciation to the Restructuring Committee members for undertaking the task at hand which is of a national interest.
He added that whilst the committee may consult with the SRC board, no member of the Restructuring Committee shall be subject to the direction or control of any person, including any Board member of the Commission.
