Highlanders chief executive officer Ndumiso Gumede recently hailed the relative calm in his team’s camp as the race heats up for the Castle Lager Premiership title.

The team is desperate to end Dynamos’ rampant dominance of domestic football in what is turning out to be an enthralling five-team title race also involving debutants ZPC Kariba, CAPS United and Hwange.

Bosso have enjoyed a calm season, very much unlike rivals Dynamos and CAPS United, who have had to contend with intermittent player revolts over outstanding bonuses and other entitlements. Dynamos endured a week long industrial action by players over unpaid bonuses and a lack of communication from club officials.

Gumede said part of the reason for the calm at Highlanders was the transparent approach the executive had embraced when dealing with issues surrounding players’ welfare.

“Of course we are indebted to BankABC, who have been paying the players’ salaries, while the club foots the winning bonuses. We are also up to date with our bonus payments with the exception of maybe one game,” said Gumede. “Furthermore, we have an open policy and a couple of weeks ago the whole executive met the players to explain the economic situation and the club’s financial position because it is very important that they know.”
