He has been in constant touch with the coach and fits directly into the club’s philosophy. He is young and the technical team has been monitoring him for a while, they know his capabilities. Remember, Kapupurika is one player who was a thorn in the flesh for us in the first leg of the league match last season as well as in the ZTA organised game. It is our hope that he will give us the value that the technical team saw in him and have a great stay at Highlanders,” External link

Nhlanhla Dube said ( about Gabriel Nyoni ) : “He is one of the players that the technical team wanted and we have agreed terms with him. He has signed for two years with us and comes in as a direct replacement for Gabriel Nyoni. He is 22 and fits well into the age group that the coach (Madinda Ndlovu) wants. There are other players that the coaches have shown interest in that attended our trials at the weekend, but that is work in progress,” External link

The preferred route by members is that we should appoint a Highlanders' son who understand what we mean by doing things the Highlanders way," External link

Nhlanhla Dube said : "We had a meeting with the players where we listened to their grievances and we also articulated the reasons for our failure to meet some of the financial obligations. They understood that since the team is not playing well, revenue inflows have also been affected. We told them that everything was being done to ensure their dues are paid, which they understood.

Nhlanhla Dube said : "Mutuma, who shed tears for his clearance letter in our offices, only scored two goals in 13 matches. Prince Dube left the club after scoring six goals and we could not get their replacements. This excuse that there are no strikers is absolutely ridiculous. During the mid-season transfer window our head coach Erol Akbay wanted us to sign Obadiah Tarumbwa but we could not as the player is contracted to Chicken Inn," External link

We had to cross reference these issues with various members of the technical team and this resulted in the assistant coach Soma-Phiri resigning from work this afternoon. He wrote a letter to us that he delivered this afternoon. He articulated his greatest disappointment over the results of the team and his desire to allow the team to progress without him," External link

Nhlanhla Dube said : "We want to be clear that there are times that we communicate things and keep them internally, but that professionalism mustn't be abused for stupidity, or toothlessness or lack of cutting edge. It's simple because you respect processes and we will always do that. We will not do things that are unprincipled at Highlanders; we will stick to principle because principle at the end of the day is permanent. Short term populism is short term, it doesn't get us anywhere and at Highlanders if you can't stand by principle, there's no point being there and that is where we are," External link

bulawayo24 Wednesday, August 30, 2017 9:46:00 AM EAT

Nhlanhla Dube said : "As a son of Highlanders, he wished to step aside and allow the head coach, who felt that he was working against his progress, to then continue and show what he can do without the sordid interference from Soma-Phiri. I will hastily point out that we had a very amicable conversation; he wished to deal with it in a simple way, step back, have no issues, have no undertones, no bad feelings with the club and as far as he is concerned, he is a son of Highlanders, he can be redeployed at any point when the club decides they need his services. We've accepted his decision," External link

Nhlanhla Dube said : "Football is made up of all of us. There is a time when results will not come so the best will be to remain united. Our players, coaches and fans get frustrated when results do not come but losses do happen in football. We need to motivate each other. We need a collective effort, a collective support that can inspire our coaches in their team selection and in how to lead our team. Everyone has a responsibility," External link

Nhlanhla Dube said : "Mutuma, who shed tears for his clearance letter in our offices, only scored two goals in 13 matches. Prince Dube left the club after scoring six goals and we could not get their replacements. This excuse that there are no strikers is absolutely ridiculous. During the mid-season transfer window our head coach Erol Akbay wanted us to sign Obadiah Tarumbwa but we could not as the player is contracted to Chicken Inn," External link

Nhlanhla Dube said : "Theoretically we are still in the matrix, mathematically we are still in. It has become more difficult, but we are still in the matrix but obviously it's going to depend on how quickly we turn the page. We can't afford to lose any more points because any point lost now is a nail on our coffin," External link

Nhlanhla Dube said : "The thought process is there because we already knew that the coach was not going to extend his contract, so we were already thinking how we will start preparing for next year. There might be a need to stop the ship from sinking so another solution might be required quicker if we don't get the results that we want," External link

Nhlanhla Dube said : "We received from the head coach a letter in which he articulated what he viewed were reasons for the team's performance. We had to cross reference these issues with various members of the technical team and this resulted in the assistant coach Soma-Phiri resigning from work this afternoon. He wrote a letter to us that he delivered this afternoon. He articulated his greatest disappointment over the results of the team and his desire to allow the team to progress without him," External link

Nhlanhla Dube said : "We want to be clear that there are times that we communicate things and keep them internally, but that professionalism mustn't be abused for stupidity, or toothlessness or lack of cutting edge. It's simple because you respect processes and we will always do that. We will not do things that are unprincipled at Highlanders; we will stick to principle because principle at the end of the day is permanent. Short term populism is short term, it doesn't get us anywhere and at Highlanders if you can't stand by principle, there's no point being there and that is where we are," External link

Nhlanhla Dube said : "As a son of Highlanders, he wished to step aside and allow the head coach, who felt that he was working against his progress, to then continue and show what he can do without the sordid interference from Soma-Phiri. I will hastily point out that we had a very amicable conversation; he wished to deal with it in a simple way, step back, have no issues, have no undertones, no bad feelings with the club and as far as he is concerned, he is a son of Highlanders, he can be redeployed at any point when the club decides they need his services. We've accepted his decision," External link

Nhlanhla Dube said : "The Highlanders way has always been there, but because it is not documented, it has been lost, as coaches come up with their own formula which at times is at odds with what has been traditionally practiced at the club," "We feel it is critical that it be documented as a policy framework, so that every coach understands how we recruit and train from entry level until players get to the senior team" External link

bulawayo24 Monday, August 28, 2017 9:56:00 AM EAT

Nhlanhla Dube said : "Football is made up of all of us. There is a time when results will not come so the best will be to remain united. Our players, coaches and fans get frustrated when results do not come but losses do happen in football. We need to motivate each other. We need a collective effort, a collective support that can inspire our coaches in their team selection and in how to lead our team. Everyone has a responsibility," External link

Nhlanhla Dube said : "As a club, we understand the pain our supporters are going through when the team doesn't do well. We're not taking the team's performance for granted and means are being done to keep the players motivated. Going through bad patches happens in football and it is our hope that results will be turned around," External link

At the end of the meeting, he understood that things are done differently in this culture. There is a certain way of communicating here. The coach reiterated his commitment to Highlanders and said there was no way he is going to compromise his professional conduct," External link

Nhlanhla Dube said ( about President Mugabe ) : "The march showed that the perennial excuse making that Zanu-PF cannot win an election without rigging is not true. It shows that there are people fully behind Zanu-PF and if an election was to be called now, all those people at the march would rally behind the President and Zanu PF," "The rigging claims can therefore not be sustained with the numbers that attended the march" External link
