HARARE City football club chair Leslie Gwindi insists he has not been booted out but said there would be a reshuffle of the team’s executive committee.

Reports at the weekend claimed Gwindi and his executive have been booted out of Harare City following a full councillors’ meeting called last week to address the team’s dismal start to the season.

Team patron and Harare Mayor Bernard Manyenyeni was quoted confirming the dissolution of the executive

“Yes, we dissolved the entire executive at a full council meeting on Thursday,” the mayor was quoted saying.

“There are a number of issues that we were not happy with, especially over the manner in which the team was being administered.

“There are also quite a number of malpractices which we felt did not augur well with the image that we want the club to mirror on behalf of the City.

“Corporate governance was clearly no longer being adhered to and we felt duty bound to act as we have done.”

However, Gwindi maintains he was reshuffling the team’s executive.

Club secretary Tarisai Kwenda was said to be in the line of fire by Gwindi but she said Tuesday she had not received any letter either from Gwindi or the councillors who took the decision to dissolve the executive.

“Fired by who? Do you mean the councillors who are reported to have dissolved the executive? I am yet to receive any letter to that effect.

“Once I receive a letter confirming that you will get to know. So far there is nothing even my colleagues have not received any letters to that effect,” she said.

Gwindi also stated: “I have not been fired. That is not true the correct position is that we are reshuffling the executive as I indicated on my Facebook page before making an announcement very soon.”

Harare City had a disastrous start to the season after managing just a 2-1 win over Triangle in the seven matches played in the campaign.

That performance saw some executive members allegedly led by Kwenda pushing for the axing of coach Bigboy Mawiwi.
