Mighty Wanderers board has no powers to stop the on-going changes in the supporters executive committee, Times Sport has learnt.
The team’s secretary to the board Humphreys Mvula was reacting to recent developments at the Lali Lubani Road side, which has seen Mervin Nkunika and Sam Mponda being suspended as chairperson and general secretary respectively.
“We have no jurisdiction over how supporters manage themselves. We do not manage supporters. In terms of governance they manage themselves,” he said.
Mvula said Wanderers supporters committee had notified the board about the changes.
“The supporters sent a letter in the morning communicating to us about the changes. It is just communication; we are not being asked for an opinion,” he said.
Mvula said the supporters issue would be among agenda items when the board meets.
“One thing is that when the board of directors meet, they will look at it and consider before taking a position. The board will not meet because of these happenings. The board will meet because the board has got to meet to discuss relevant issues.
“I can’t tell you what will happen. Obviously like any other board it will be interested to inquire into what has happened or what has led to the issues that have happened. The board may inquire or decide to set a team to look into this. They might decide to take a position or decide to move with the supporters,” he said.
Wanderers supporters zonal chairmen met at the team’s club house on Monday, when it was agreed that Dines Chitsulo should be the chairperson. Witness Kanyemba was selected first Vice Chairperson while Chifuniro Chilambe was named Second vice chairperson. Peter Mvalo was named general secretary with Charles Andrew as his vice.
Meanwhile, Chitsulo said they were hoping that the team’s board would act swiftly.
“We need to sort out the team to be ready for the new season,” he said.
