Veteran football administrator, Ndumiso Gumede is back at Highlanders after he replaced Jimmy Ncube as the club president.
Ncube has been elevated to the post of club patron which was vacant since 2014 after the death of Tafi Ziyabuya Moyo at the age of 108.
According to The Chronicle, the club’s board chairman, Luke Mnkandla said the appointment of Gumede, who had left the club in 2016, was confirmed at the club’s joint board and executive meeting held on Tuesday.
“Gumede is now the Highlanders president while Jimmy S Ncube is now our patron as per the constitution. The club president is a life position whose duty is to advise even the board,” said Mnkandla.
Gumede, who got involved in the club’s structures in the early 1970s as Highlanders’ representative in Harare, served as the club’s chairman and also as secretary- general and vice-president of Zifa.
