Mbedza has fulfilled electoral requirements to contest during the elections.
“I don’t need any introduction to Wanderers family. I have been part of this family for so long. Some quarters approached me to consider standing, and I gave it much thought. I feel I have something to offer to the team,” he said.
Mbedza, while applauding the outgoing committee for a wonderful job, said there was need for Wanderers to introduce different marketing initiatives to boost the club’s coffers.
“The outgoing committee did well by securing sponsorship. Above all, they made sure to convince Be Forward Limited to continue supporting the team.
“They also sacrifice personal resources for the team. However, there is need for marketing initiatives to avoid over dependency on the sponsor,” he said.
Mbedza said Wanderers can generate extra funding from marketing drives to improve players’ welfare.
“For instance, if we can go into the right replica merchandise deals, there is need to identify reliable sales points and agents for supporters to easily access the replicas,” he said.
Mbedza said he would also strive to introduce other fundraising drives to generate extra funds.
“I am not talking about replicas only, but also other fundraising initiatives such as dinner dances. What we need is to promote the Nomads brand. Wanderers is well-followed and we need to increase its visibility to coax those supporters,” he said.
Mbedza said money realised from such initiatives can help Wanderers construct their own stadium.
