ZOC presidency up for grabs

HARARE - The Zimbabwe Olympic Committee (ZOC) is set to hold its Ordinary General Assembly in July where the organisation's books will be scrutinised.
ZOC Chief Executive, Robert Mutsauki told CAJ News Agency this week that the main items on the 10-point agenda included p

resentation of the report on the activities of the Executive Board, the audited accounts and budget and the election of the President and female Executive Board Member.
“Normally elections take place every four years and with the last elections having been conducted in April last year giving the new incumbents a four year mandate, the next elections would under normal circumstances have been scheduled for the first half of 2009.
“However, the post of President was declared vacant at the ZOC Extraordinary General Assembly two months ago and the same assembly resolved to hold elections for a President on July 16. The post of female Executive Board Member is to be filled in terms of article 15 (a) of the ZOC constitution which stipulates that the Executive Board should be made up of 11 elected members, at least three of whom should be women. Currently the Board is made up of nine elected members and only two of these members (Busi Chindove and Kathy Lobb) are women,” said Mutsauki.
According to Mutsauki, other elected members of the Board comprised Admire Masenda and Brian Warren (Vice Presidents); Thabani Gonye (Treasurer) and another four Executive Board Members, Lovemore Malianga, Austin Jeans, Custom Kachambwa and Mike Nicholson.
He added: “Apart from the elected nine members, the current Board also has another four members who were co-opted in terms of article 15 (f) of the constitution which provides for co-option to address anomalies in representation. The co-opted members are Nicholas Munyonga, Sekesai Nhokwara, Titus Zvomuya and Wilfred Mukondiwa.”
He said the nominations for president and female executive board member, which could only be made by National Associations affiliated to ZOC, would close on 30 June. – CAJ News
