Simon Sikwese steps down
Mighty Wanderers Chairperson Simon Sikwese has quit his post after growing frustrated following misunderstandings surrounding the commercialisation process.
“With regret I have resigned as Chairman for Wanderers for reasons beyond my comprehension. I have my personal integrity to control than to be tossed around by supporters,” Sikwese told fellow executive members yesterday.
Sikwese’s resignation follows calls from a section of Wanderers fans, including the supporters committee, demanding the sacking of some members of the main executive committee.
Wanderers Supporters Committee summoned the main executive committee to a meeting at Wanderers Club House on Saturday but sources indicated that only three officials including vice general secretary Adela Migogo attended the meeting.
The supporters chairperson Mervin Nkunika said they would ask Sikwese to rescind his decision.
The Lali Lubani Road outfit has been embroiled in confusion following the resignation of general secretary Victor Maunde and treasurer Robert Mbedza.
Last week Wanderers commercialisation taskforce also stepped down following disagreements with the contents of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
Some Wanderers executive committee members were pushing for the inclusion of the team’s trustees in the MoU arguing they needed to be part of the agreement.
The committee also questioned the integrity and authenticity of the commercialisation taskforce.
