Falkenberg wins ZRU presidency

Falkenberg, who was vice-president, was elected unopposed and so was Aisha Tsimba who was voted Northern Region vice-president and Nyararai Sibanda who replaced Brett Halloway as the vice-president of the Southern Region.

The position of the treasurer, which was being held by Ngoni Mudzamiri, will be filled later by the executive.
The AGM which also saw the adoption of a new constitution, started with the outgoing president Themba Sibanda praising the national teams’ performances.

“Unlike the previous years, 2011 was a different year as the structures started taking shape though not to perfection.

“We also saw the formation of national team brands though they were hugely criticised. I believe that they should not be disbanded. The national teams also did well with the Sables winning the Victoria Cup as well as being promoted to Group 1A that enables them to participate in the World Cup qualifiers,” he said.

Mudzamiri, the outgoing treasurer lamented the union’s debts which continues to soar.

“Creditors are owed US$94 549 with the biggest creditor being Timber Connections who are owed US$47 600. Other creditors include players’ salaries for 2010. The Sables also owe creditors an amount totaling US$116 000 as at December 31 2011,” he said.

He added that the audited financial results for 2011 will be released soon. Incoming president Falkenberg said he is prepared to take up the challenge while Tsimba said she hoped they would make a diference.
“We will lay up a programme of action in the next few days,” Falkenberg said.
