How Dynamos fired Sanyamandwe as club president

Dynamos fired their president Solomon Sanyamandwe, six months after his appointment.

Sanyamandwe took over the post in July 2018, replacing Keni Mubaiwa who had resigned because of the never-ending squabbling at the club.

In a letter served to him on Thursday, the Harare businessman was informed that the board agreed to abolish the post of the Club President as part of the restructuring exercise. The decision was made at a meeting held on the 23rd of December.

This means that since Tuesday, the day the resolution was effected, Sanyamandwe was no longer the boss at the Harare giants.

The letter which had no signature of the board chairman Bernard Marriot read: “We write to advise you that the board had a meeting at the National Sports Stadium on 23 December 2018.

“Among the resolutions, the full board agreed to abolish the post of the club president as part of the club restructuring exercise.  This resolution was effected 1 January 2019. We, therefore, advise you that you are no longer the Dynamos president with effect from 1 January.”

Sanyamandwe had previously served as vice president, but after landing the new top post, he developed a frosty relationship with Marriot and became a lame duck boss without powers like his predecessor Mubaiwa.

Club chairman Isiah Mupfurutsa, a favourite of Marriott, has been the one running the show of late.
