Highlanders have appointed youthful journalist cum football administrator as their substantive chief executive officer while former player, Joel Luphahla has returned to the club as an assistant coach.
Moyo, who has been the club’s acting CEO will on April 1 take over on a fulltime basis the, vacant job which was left by Nhlanhla Dube when his contract expired in October last year.
“After a long search that followed adverts for the vacant CEO position, we have managed to fill in the slot. After going through a rigorous exercise of screening and looking at a number of club immediate and long-term needs, we were indeed convinced that from all the best men we had at our disposal one had to take the crown. All your concerns about not downgrading the club with an average pro have been taken care of in the water tight and thorough process,” Highlanders executive committee secretary, Morgen Dube said in a statement to the club’s members.
“I hereby take this opportunity to appeal to your unquestionable support to this great institution by accepting, respecting and supporting this choice and decision in that regard. Ronald Moyo has been identified, chosen and appointed the substantive Highlanders Football Club Chief Executive Officer. He will officially assume office on the 1st April (not a fool’s joke) 2022 though he is and has been acting in that capacity,” said Dube.
Dube also confirmed the return of Luphahla to Bosso barely 24 hours after the former Warriors’ left Northern Region Division One side Golden Eagles.
“Following a recent rise on the team’s performance your executive committee has reviewed the works of the Mandla Mpofu staff. We have resolved to support the coaches and allow them to carry their mandate of competing for the ultimate price in the league. Following their request to beef up the bench and have a full complement Joel Luphahla has been brought in as the second assistant coach. We humbly urge the Highlanders family to support the technical team in all ways possible to help the club attain the intended goal,’’ Dube said.
