HIGHLANDERS have asked its South African supportersa�� chapter chairman Daniel Molokele to step down from his position after he accepted another role in a Zifa fundraising committee.
Molokele was recently offered a position as a committee member in a Zifa fundraising committee based in South Africa.
Highlanders have since written to Molokele to relinquish his Bosso post.
a�?Ita��s club policy that if a member rises to another position in a different organisation, we wish him well, but we have to ask that member to relinquish the Highlanders post.
a�?We wrote to Mr Molokele and stated that it was a conflict of interest for him to remain Highlanders supportersa�� chapter chairman while at the same time serving in another committee of a different organisation,a�? said Gumede.
B-Metro Sport is reliably informed that Molokele has since written back to Highlanders and asked to remain South Africa supportersa�� chapter chairman.
He has offered to write to Zifa and ask to be excused from the national football mother body fundraising committee.
The Highlanders executive will deliberate on the issue in their weekly review and planning meeting.
Highlanders has numerous supportersa�� chapters around the country as well as in the diaspora.
The role of supportersa�� chapters include mobilising, activating dormant supporters by re-igniting their interest in the activities of the club, assist the club by hosting the team whenever Highlanders plays in their respective constituencies by providing lunches, refreshments before and after matches among other things.
Supportersa�� chapters are also mandated to fundraise for the club.
The Highlanders executive also reaches out to its supporters on pertinent issues affecting the club through supportersa�� chapters.
